Review Text

This is a superb anthology of some of the best stories you could hope to introduce to children. Thirty-six in all, they are a mixture of complete stories and excerpts that will entice the listener into reading the whole book. There are extracts from classics like The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, The Railway Children, A Christmas Carol and The Secret Garden. There are fairy stories like 'The Emperor's New Clothes', and 'The Frog Prince' and perennially favourite characters like Professor Branestawm, Worzel Gummidge and Winnie-the-Pooh. There are contemporary stories by Margaret Mahy, Joan Aiken, Dick King-Smith, Helen Cresswell, Catherine Storr, Shirley Hughes and Jill Murphy, and a brand new chapter taken from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Illustrations are from the original publications so are wonderfully diverse in style. An anthology that no family should be without. (6 yrs +) Review by FIONA LAFFERTY (Kirkus UK)show more
