    With Rotten Rena failing in all her wicked spells she is warned that she faces being expelled from the Witches Union unless she "bucks her ideas up" - and how can she do this? Well of course one person who has the answer and who always knows best is Rotten Rena's mother who forces her to enter the witches great egg and cauldron race. Poor old Rotten Rena simply hasn't got a hope of winning especially when her Cauldron runs away.

    Renata says: "Amazing book for young children."
    "a magical version of an egg and spoon race"

    Where does The Treebobs and the Runaway Cauldron rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The treebobs and the giant mole is probably still my favourite but this is a book that would take many listenings so much in it


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Treebobs and the Runaway Cauldron?

    the arrival of the flying hat and the pixie- really builds anticipation of what on earth is going to happen now


    Have you listened to any of Lindsay Abbott’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This one has even more characters , hard to believe its the same person...even each witch sounds different ...and the pixie has just a hint of evil


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    well it was strange to find i was cheering rotten rena on !


    Any additional comments?

    I love how the treebobs are the brains of the outfit

    Pure Christmas magic in the enchanting world of the Treebobs. When Father Christmas arrives to begin his journey across the world on Christmas Eve, Rotten Rena the wicked witch is waiting for a present and she is not at all pleased when she does not get one. In true Rotten Rena style she casts one of her wicked spells to ruin Christmas for the World. However the Treebob Queen with the very best of the Treebob air force, the "Royal Air Bobs", use the pure magic of Christmas to make sure that Father Christmas does indeed get to fly his sleigh that Christmas eve.

    Mrs M Smith says: "The Perfect "Feel good" story for Christmas"
    "Three cheers for the Royal Air Bobs"

    Where does The Treebobs Save Christmas rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    probably the favourite,it manages to tell a great christmas story but isnt too sugary sweet , a salutory tale for any naughty young person with the naughty witches not getting anything !


    What did you like best about this story?

    the imagery of the reindeer made from sycamore leaves and twigs i'd love one for my porch ....merchandise please !
    As far as the children are concerned it has all the essentials of a christmas story but is exciting , ...will Rena really spoil christmas, what will father christmas do? how can the treebobs help? and then the arrival of the ultimate christmas fairy in the Treebob Queen


    What about Lindsay Abbott and Anthony Richardson ’s performance did you like?

    Lindsay Abbott is again brilliant and Anthony Richardson is immediately recognisable as Father Christmas but without being a cliche


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Well as an adult I laughed out loud at the arrival of the Royal Air Bobs ( I go to an airshow every year and I think we are all hoping to see them there next year instead of the Red Arrows) we were all worried when the reindeer got poorly but uplifted and happy once the fairy queen arrived ....phew !


    Any additional comments?

    time for merchandise surely .....a Treebob, a Royal air bob , a reindeer at least ....its becoming a whole world to exist in for small children

    In this magical story from the ever-popular Treebob series, Rotten Rena, the wicked witch of the enchanted forest, comes up with yet another mad scheme involving one of her very own magical potions. Of course since Rotten Rena isn't the cleverest of witches it all goes wrong with hilarious results! Of course its up to the Treebobs to rescue her.

    Would you listen to The Treebobs Rescue Rotten Rena again? Why?

    Yes...I am sure the children and me miss some of the nuamces of what Rena says


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Definitely Rotten Rena ...because she's threatening and bad......but enough of a buffoon not to be too scary for little ones


    What does Lindsay Abbott bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    she manages to make the difference between the two witches , makes them 3D


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    a new take on weightwatchers !


    Any additional comments?

    having heard the story I am now going to get the book so we can see the illustrations ...especially if there's one of Rena covered in egg

    I love the voices they bring it alive and make all the different characters easily distinguishable and memorble can't believe one person did it...with most audiobooks i am disappointed when its one person


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    definitely Rotten Rena she has all the best lines


    What does Lindsay Abbott bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    it seems to whizz along and you feel part of it


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Rotten Rena flies again


    Any additional comments?

    Its the kind of book I like my children to have such a refreshing change and harks back to my childhood too. ALSO it is JUST the right length to do in one go
