Review quote

'This must contain the most hilarious start to a children's audiobook ever - and that's the opinion of adults! With dramatic Dracula style organ music, you will be shaking with laughter and fear at the same time! The three stories are a great example of comic genius, full of childish humour yet all still wrapped up in wonderful writing that they will be transfixed by. Rupert Degas reads with humorous animation that is perfectly suited to the spooky theme.' 'anarchic, vile, rude joy as read by Rupert Degas, with villainously appropriate music composed by the producer, Peter Rinne, resposible also for the brilliant Horrid Henry audios. No house with children should be without one of these.' -- Kati Nicholl DAILY EXPRESS 'Grizzly Tales is full of imagination and horror, children will love it.' IRISH FARMERS MONTHLYshow more
