Summary

His mother was amazed when she saw the size of her newborn infant and realised that feeding him was going to cause problems. She turned to a box of patent Porker Pills, used for fattening pigs. But the bigger Magnus grew, the more problems he caused.

Something for everyone

I owned this audiobook on cassette tape when I was a kid and hadn’t heard it for probably 20 years. To find Audible had the very same recording that I had on cassette was quite a joy for me (yes it really is that old – note the outro at the end that declares the publishing company can “forward on any LETTERS to the authors or narrators”). It’s no exaggeration to say then that listening to Magnus Powermouse again was deeply nostalgic. It is a wonderful short story that is fantastically performed by Nigel Anthony. It brought a lot of memories back while at the same time uncovering humour and detail I was naïve to as a child. Something for everyone.

A firm favourite.

I loved this story as a child, so when a long car journey loomed it was a great choice for my two kiddos. They loved the story and are looking forward to listening to it again.
