    "Traditional stories shortened but not altered"

    Beautifully read but beware of original endings if allowing young children to listen. No Disney romance here

    "Disappointing..."

    Keep on getting a 'Playback failed. Please try again" error message. So could not listen to these stories which is a real shame. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling Audible, but problem persisted. Sent a report through, do let's see...

    Any additional comments?

    I love these stories and thought I could download them to a cd to play in the car when I have my grandchildren. But I can't, also seem unable to return them. The whole process has been frustrating, annoying and I will not be using audible books again.
