THE GIRAFFE AND PELLY AND ME: In this classic story of the Ladderless Window-Cleaning Company, we accompany Billy, who is lucky enough to join in the many remarkable and entertaining adventures of the Company's animals: the giraffe with an incredible stretching neck, the pelican with a magical beak and the dancing monkey. ESIO TROT: Here's a very tortoisey one that will become an instant favourite! Mr Hoppy is in love with Mrs Silver, but she only has eyes for her tortoise Alfie. She would so love Alfie to grow bigger, she says. In a bold attempt to outdo his rival, Mr Hoppy devises an ingenious plan to make Alfie grow and grow and grow...Wonderfully brought to life, here we meet THE ENORMOUS CROCODILE. He boasts that he is going to eat a child for lunch and sets out to trick all the children in his attempts for food. But his plots and disguises are foiled by the animals in the jungle - especially by Trunky, the Elephant.

    Rudyard Kipling's famous tale tells the story of Mowgli, the 'man-cub' rescued from the tiger, Shere Khan, and adopted by a wolf pack. As he grows up, Mowgli learns the ways of the jungle from Baloo the bear, Bagheera the black panther and Kaa the rock python. His life is full of adventure with the jungle creatures, but soon the time comes when he is forced to leave and take his place among his own people. A kind woman looks after Mowgli but she can't protect him from the superstitious villagers who believe his friendship with wolves is the result of sorcery. Mowgli's only escape is to return to the jungle. But even the jungle has become a dangerous place. This rich and entertaining dramatisation skilfully blends words with jungle sounds and music, and stars Eartha Kitt as Kaa, Freddie Jones as Baloo, Jonathan Hyde as Bagheera and Nisha Nayar as Mowgli.

    Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert have sent to the orphanage for a boy. So when a skinny, red-haired girl turns up, she is not quite what they had in mind. Anne Shirley soon sets the quiet island community of Avonlea talking of little else. With her incessant chatter and intense imagination, things are never dull with Anne - in fact, they are frequently fiery. But slowly the islanders realise that beneath the quicksilver tongue and the red-headed temper is a little girl with a heart of gold, who brings a much-needed warmth and vitality to the community. Since its publication in 1908, the story of Anne Shirley has touched a chord in the hearts of readers all over the world: '...old pioneers in the Australian bush, girls in India, missionaries in China, monks in remote monasteries, premiers of Great Britain, and red-headed people all over the world have written to me, telling me how they loved Anne', wrote L.M. Montgomery about her heroine. The infectious liveliness and charm of the novel emanates delightfully from this BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation. 2 CDs. 2 hrs 24 mins.
