These CDs are wonderful with brilliant narrators. As a family, we love listening to these and they make our long car journeys fly past.
Note these are MP3 CDs, not regular CDs, so can only be played on a computer, not on a CD player or in your car. Really disappointed. Who plays kids' story CDs on a computer. The Book People, please make the MP3 thing clearer?
Thanks for the review
Hi, thanks for your comments. The title of this collection does state that these are MP3 CDs and the description also has information related to the MP3 format of the CDs.

Sadly can’t play CDs -
I bought these for my 6-year-old for Christmas to entertain on car journeys. Sadly they do not play on our 2016 car stereo so very disappointed children.
