A lot of cliff hangers

It was good and enjoyable listen. The narrator made the listening exciting with lots of describing words

Timeless stories told beautifully

Four beautiful stories read so well by the readers. I enjoyed every bit of it and I am sure the young ones I share them with will also do.

Very engaging reader

The book is not a book rather a theatrical play with the narrators voice, my child is captivated immediately!

The last story

I didn’t like the last one because it was so sad and it gave me a heart attack
