I loved all the stories. Each naration was clear and enjoyable. Music was also splendit.
"Traditional stories shortened but not altered"
Beautifully read but beware of original endings if allowing young children to listen. No Disney romance here
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...
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.
