Happy Families... bringing family together -

I read these books when I was a little girl and it's great to have got them and am now listening to my kids read them.

Some content is inappropriate -

Although there are some good morals to learn in these books, I agree with other comments that some of the content is just inappropriate.

Finding Mummy a new boyfriend; Mr Biff likes drinking too much beer; parents getting the sack; and stories about wealth with a materialistic theme.

Was quite disappointed with the set and had to change some of the dialogue when reading aloud to my 4 year old. Nothing outrageous in there, I just think 4-year-olds don't need to know such things!

Fabulous collection -

Great collection of books, great value. My grandson who is 6 has really enjoyed both reading and listening to them. The last reviewer said that they can be scary! Depends how you read them! Great fun, great humour!

Happy Families Collection - not -

I bought this set for my 4-year-old grandson. The stories are inappropriate for children so young. I started to read Master Money as a bedtime story. I had to change some of the storyline as I read it, as the part where the little boy was kidnapped and tied up by the Creep family would have given him nightmares. I would not recommend this collection for young children.
