Lovely stories, absolutely beautifully performed.

This audiobook is meant for children, however adults will love it too, it made me literally cry ( in a good way) in several places, the writing is just so beautiful. John Moffat is a favourite of mine (poirot) and it was lovely to hear him present something other than an Agatha Christie.

His voice and tone are perfect and he sounds like he enjoyed the telling of the stories himself! Really charming and absolutely beautifully done.

Loved it, loved it , loved it. The nightingale story was also listened to by my husband and he said he felt incredibly moved by it even though he's a sci-fi fan!

( NB:Not very pc ( last story) but of its time and actually quite illuminating in a historical sense of how things were viewed when this was written- could bring interesting discussions with older children)

Enjoy with a candle by your bed... Night night zzzz😴
