Bedtime for my boy

my 4yr old loves this story, as do I. we listen to it regularly at bedtimes and are usually asleep by the end of chapter 1! Kate Winslet does a great performance and really brings the characters to life

Great story that kept children engaged!

Although the kids loved the story, the accents and voices of some characters made for unpleasant listening at times.

Fantastic performance

My 4 year old and I enjoyed this performance of such a brilliant story.
Perfect tone and characterisation for each character. It’s been a total joy. What a lovely soft, expressive and gentle voice to listen to. Thanks for such a happy time!

Classic!

I could listen to this over and over again. Kate Winslett's performance was stunning and kept me engrossed from beginning to end. By far one of the beat purchases I have ever made
