Bought this for my daughter's 8th birthday as my sister and I enjoyed them at the same age. She and her 5-year-old brother are really enjoying the stories and they are a great length for longer car journeys.
They are clearly read and easy to understand. I recommend these for younger fans of witches and wizards who might find Harry Potter a little bit too scary.

Turned up in good time. Looks good but is Xmas present so not opened any further.
My 9- and 6-year-old girls are really enjoying these audio books - very well read, funny and enjoyable! Very pleased and makes car journeys so much more fun! I love them too.
