a childhood favourite

laughs a plenty with this simple collection of stories that i owned on vinyl.
i still laugh at the pure imagination i had/have during these stories.
The tune has stuck with me my entire life and i was delighted to find these on Audible.
The performance by Arthur Lowe is brilliant and adds to the comedic value.
My inner child thanks Audible for this nostalgic gem.

Barely understand a word

Why would they get a mumbling man to read a children's story? Frustrating. His speech slurs and its ridiculous.

Unmatchable...

It makes you realise the power of simple storytelling.

Arthur Lowe, a man that one imagines is rarely considered avuncular, animates the well-crafted stories with warmth, passion and humour.

It's a brief collection which I remember owning on 33.3 vinyl and playing until I could hear the feint sounds of side 1 when playing side 2,

Thankfully someone has cleaned up the album - de-clicked and de-hissed it and now I've just streamed it in my car via Bluetooth for my daughter.

I am Mr Progress.

Looking forward to Volume 2. My daughter that is. Obviously.

3 year old enjoys

My 3 year old loves the mr men books, thought an audio book would be good for rainy days indoors, he lives it and when it finishes wants to know where they have gone . Good listening and sounds

Nostalgic

This is just how I remember it on the TV. I enjoy them with my own children now. They also get excited trying to guess which Mr Man we'll get to meet next. Highly recommended.

My children (6 and 9) LOVE this

Would you listen to Mr Men again? Why?

Absolutely. What's not to love about the Mr Men stories. My children struggle to settle to sleep in the evenings so we listen to stories of their favourite books. Sometimes they read along (little one) and sometimes they just listen and relax. They love these stories. Highly recommend.

What did you like best about this story?

All of it. The narrator has a voice like you would expect. The stories are exactly how you remember from being a child.

Which character – as performed by Arthur Lowe – was your favourite?

All.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Children are constantly giggling throughout.

Any additional comments?

Just wish the Little Miss books were on Audible too. And maybe some more of the Mr Men stories. :-)
