Summary

This set includes five tales of extraordinary heroism, marvelous intrigue, and exceptional courage that have inspired and amazed people for generations. Gulliver’s Travels is Jonathan Swift’s comic tale of an Englishman who journeys to four fantastical and exotic lands filled with unforgettable characters, from the pint-size Lilliputians to the giant Brobdingnagians. The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood takes us to Sherwood Forest, where the brigand and his band of “merry men” rob from the rich to give to the poor — to the consternation of the Sheriff of Nottingham. The Jungle Book transports readers into a wondrous world where danger lurks behind every drooping vine and the law of the jungle is the key to survival. Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island follows young Jim Hawkins as he learns the ways of the buccaneer from a group of seafaring miscreants, including the nefarious peg leg, Long John Silver. White Fang by Jack London recreates the forbidding world of the Yukon Gold Rush, where a wild dog must endure violence, hardship, and bitter cold on his journey from savagery to civilization.

Hard to rate

It's hard to put a rating on a collection of stories like this. All I can say is the narrators were all first rate, but I was surprised at how little I engaged with the stories - except for Treasure Island - a rollicking good tale that one! But at only 1 credit you can at least now say you've read all the "classic children's adventures", and you may even enjoy one or two.

Thoroughly enjoyable!

Having never read any of the included books previously I can't say a bad word about either the stories or the performances.

Very worthwhile listen!

Great stories, difficult format

Any additional comments?

This is a great set of stories well read/performed. The only complaint we had was the format: it's a HUGE book to download and it's nearly impossible to find a given book in the collection as they aren't differentiated. So, we just listened to it straight through and enjoyed the classic stories, but will find it hard to go back and listen again.
