Like or not

I really liked King Kong but I didn’t like the black cat and I loved the misery tour.

Overall good but...

I loved the whole story overall but in bumps in the night I hate how the narrator said in the same cellar In the same house, well of corse it is in the same house if the skeletons are In the same cellar.

Great though the music was odd

Enjoyed listening to these with my children although I thought the music was odd, the intro music made it difficult to hear the words properly through the crooning and the I Cruden talk music was a bit ominous, which doesn't fit with the mood of the book. Apart from that it was good to hear all the stories on a compilation.

5 year old son loved it

Once we got over the I production, whereby he wasn't quite sure about the story as worried it was too scary, he really laughed at and enjoyed the stories

Son still not bored after over 200 listenings

My nearly 6 year old listens to this at least 5 night's a week.
We also have the picture books and some times do a read-along.
The reading is wonderful and the introduction song is subtle and fits in perfectly.
