This is amazing. I love it. I love reading but just listening to the stories in the cds was great, they are funny and read in a nice way. The way they are read makes you want to listen, as the voice is loud and uses emotion.If you love Roald Dahl books and stories these are something you would want.

We have the 10 Phizz-whizzing Audiobook CD's from Roald Dahl, also in a box tin and it has been our best purchase ever. 

My son is a briliant reader, but there are times when he can't read - such as in the car as it makes him car sick. Other times, he just likes to sit quietly and listen to the stories such as when he gets up in the morning or while eating his breakfast, or after school when he's winding down from a busy day. Even a short trip to the shops, or to the grandparents warrants bringing this CD audio tin with us.

I think the one we have is lightly different to this one as it has 10 Roald Dahl stories.  The case we have is narrated by lots of celebrities such as Miranda Richardson, Chris O Dowd, Richard Ayoade, Douglas Hodge, Kate Winslet and David Walliams, Peter Serafinowicz and Stephen Fry.

The stories are so SO well narrated - our favourite being Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator as narrated by Douglas Hodge. The narrator is clearly really enjoying narrating this story and he pulls off the American accents with ease - I have driven along chuckling hard to his characterization of the astronuaght 'Showler'.

All the classic stories are there - our favourites are the glass elevator, The Twits and Matilda. We've listened to the CD's again and again, and they make long journey's go by really quickly.

My children love the Roald Dahl audio CD's - and so do me and my husband.

The box set was a gift to my eldest son from a relative - and they couldn't have picked a finer gift. Highly recommended!
