Fun and Enjoyable Listen!

I remember reading this in primary school, and since I was (and still am) a fan of Roald Dahl's work, I thought I would re-live some of my childhood.

Very funny and enjoyable story that lasts just under an hour which I listened to whilst out for an evening walk. Definitely recommended for children of primary school age, and those that want to re-live a bit of nostalgia. Also, entertaining narration from Richard Ayoade.

love it. Brilliant for anyone of any age.

I'm 30 and listen while taking my exercise. A nice change of tempo for the exercise.

Ayoade is a national treasure

This book is amazingly narrated by Ayoade. I would gladly sit and giggle along with my 4yo niece to this wonderful tale. Highly recommended.

Best narrator.

Fantastic narration for this classic Roald Dahl story. An easy five stars, from our eight year old listener.
