Great audio books! -

Fabulous for listening to on long car journeys! We have only listened to one and a half stories so far, but even my husband got into them (more than the kids I'd say!). It made our journey pass quicker and it was nice to be able to share something with our boys instead of everyone doing their own thing on the journey. Great for bonding! We love Michael Morpurgo - his stories are fantastic :)

Fantastic stories read beautifully at an amazing price! -

My 10-year-old son has been completely absorbed by the entire collection of stories. He has listened to them many times and loves them all. Super collection at a fantastic price!

Amazing -

My favourite book as a teenager was War Horse and I wanted some audio books for the car for myself and felt nostalgic.

I had not read the others but am totally in love. The Elephant in the Garden is something I will never forget in my lifetime... beautiful! Other books included Kensuke's Kingdom, Born to rRn (stunning!), Farm Boy, Kaspar... and so many others.

I cannot recommend these any higher!

There are some brilliant narrators, too, including the wonderful Derek Jacobi and Michael Morpurgo himself!

Michael Morpurgo Audio Collection - 28 CDs (Collection) -

A must-have for all that love audio collections. If you are soft at heart, you might want to listen to them when you're not driving. The stories are so moving that they may bring you to tears. I listen to them in the morning as I don't do conversation (I'm a night person). I am also dyslexic and have ADD so audio is fantastic for me and my on-the-spectrum family. The stories are gripping. A must for me.

I could listen to these over and over again. My daughters are 10 and 12 years old and are good readers. There is no fighting at the breakfast table; they are spellbound and so is my husband.

They are suited to an emotionally mature audience from 8 years old to 100 years old. I am 39 years old.

Great for car journeys -

Bought for my older son, who loves being read to, but not reading for himself. We listen to them in the car and he gets completely engrossed - I glance round to find him acting out what the characters are doing. The narration of the ones we have listened to so far is fantastic.

It is not clear from the description here, but these books are unabridged, so you get the whole book. My son also has a Michael Morpurgo book collection from TBP and will sometimes follow along, or will read the bit he has heard in the car more willingly than he might otherwise have done. I will take anything that encourages him to read and helps his imagination.
