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.

This collection did not disappoint! All the stories were great as was the performance of each narrator. I would highly recommend this for adults and children alike. I think children should be at least eleven or very well read due to vocabulary.
If you have a lot of time to listen like me, this is a book to spend a credit on.
I think Brilliance studios in general has the best recordings I have listened to so far.
I enjoyed most of these books. The only parts I did not enjoy was the last half of the Jungle Book and the last half of Gulliver's Travels. There were simply too many Travels.
Long John Silver, White Fang, and Little John are now some of my favorite characters in fiction.
This is a great collection of classics, all narrated by great orators. It was well worth listening to. I would recommend it to anyone.
