Most Helpful

Children will love it and learn.

What made the experience of listening to Adventures In Mu Mu Land the most enjoyable?

The changes in tone between songs and stories create a true adventure, linking the emotive power of sound to children's developing proficiency in language and self expression.


What other book might you compare Adventures In Mu Mu Land to, and why?

For its instinctive ability to engage with the inquisitive young mind, particularly through the sounds and rhythm of language, it is reminiscent of the Ahlbergs. However, this audio adventure is surely a forerunner in an emerging genre that marries the traditional values of children's literature, with the benefits of music.


Which scene did you most enjoy?

It was the endearing characterisation that really made the stories for me. Notably, Confucius the dragon, and the wizard with the over-sized cloak- each supplying their own brand of indisputable wisdom.


If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

A traditional touch of magic and wit, with Honey, Pickle and friends.


Any additional comments?

As a teacher of English, I was enthused by both the lively stimulus for the imagination, and for the cognitive development of the child.

Original Music and Stories For the Very Young

Where does Adventures In Mu Mu Land rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

In the BEST category, because these are stories that no child has ever heard before, that are enchanting and engaging and full of music and song too!


What was one of the most memorable moments of Adventures In Mu Mu Land?

When the boy, Prince Mu, apologises to the Dragon, for being careless with his bow and arrow! A charming, yet moral moment in a gentle tale that is cleverly underpinned with important values.


Which character – as performed by Lara J West – was your favourite?

This narrator certainly offers a vast array of funny, quirky and engaging voices and it's hard to pick a favourite from the two great heroines - Honey and Pickle - who are, as the song goes: 'A Double Act'.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes - it is very engaging and well paced - but it is also nice for very young children that they can enjoy each short story (18 minutes) just before bedtime. 'The Lullaby' sung by the mother is a real favourite with my daughter. Also it is fantastic that there is an entire 4th Chapter with just the songs - played one after another - to dance and sing along to!


Any additional comments?

Yes - this is a 'musical' audiobook - a great combination of two fun elements - songs and stories, perfectly combined and balanced. This is so much more than just listening to a story being read. This is the singularly unique difference between this set of adventures and all the other audiobooks out there. A great listening experience.
