My 8 year old says...

I think that it was really creative. It was really nice to listen to and I think instead of any other animal it was really good to use the mammoth in the story.

Brilliant!

I downloaded that for my daughters (age 10 & 12) for a long road trip we were going on. I think I enjoyed listening to it even more than they did!
David Walliams is a firm favourite in our house and Ice Monster certainly does not disappoint!

Theatrical production.

Well read and sweet story. A bit drawn out but a good story for a long trip.
