    "All Age perfect"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Brilliant story. Held 4 of us enthralled most of the way up the M5/6 on a 'bad' day. Ages ranged from 5 to 68!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Really imaginative story line which made us laugh and hold our breath.


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

    I have not read the book but like Julia Donaldson's other books so was sure this would be good. I think using one's imagination rather than someone else's pictures probably enhanced it for me personally


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

    that would spoil the story for others who did not know it!


    Any additional comments?

    If you want to keep grandchildren quiet on a long car journey or flight then buy this book.
