    Story
    "Roald Dahl is the best"

    Listening with my 4 year old on a car journey, I remember now how much I loved this book, and all RD books when I read them as a child. Dahl really knew how to say the things that a child will understand, and think are hilarious. No pussyfooting around, it's all grizzly smells, gruesome silliness, slugs and snails and 'By Gum!'. Brilliant.

    Story
    "Pure Brilliance"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. Classic Roald Dahl brought to life with an amazing narrator.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Grandma! And poor patient George.


    What does Derek Jacobi bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    His voices and characterization were brilliant. I never get bored listening to this with my kids. Its a favourite on long car journeys


    Any additional comments?

    A great listen. One of our favorite Roald Dahl audios. We have a lot of them on cd in a set we bought two years ago and e.g. the witches, even though brilliantly read by miranda Richardson, my kids (and I, in places) cant understand what the grand high witch says i as she is speaking such accented english. Georges marvelous medicine is fantastically performed by Derek Jacobi who wouldn't have been much of a favorite actor of mine before this but now I love him!
