A winner as usual

My 6 year old son adores the Famous Five stories and he listens to these audio ones in the car. He can re-tell the whole story afterwards too! Good honest fun just like they were when I was little, highly recommended!

Monotonous.

Faded out whilst narration ongoing at times. difficult to hear. Monotonous narration, needs more excitement.

Great listening for the kids

My kids are 4 and 7, they've listened to this series many times and still ask for it at bedtime. With different character voices and background sounds it's easy to become engrossed.

A wonderful journey with the famous five. I ventured with them many years ago and it's a delight to journey once more with my son.

6 yr old loved this.

My 6 yr old listened to this in the car and loved it. It is performed by different actors as opposed to read out. Felt quite old fashioned but still enjoyable.
