According to The Book People's website the usual retail price for this classic collection is £85.85 making this a saving of over £69. The books are all paperback and the suggested suitable age is 7-12 year-olds. Although my kids already listen to most of these stories on CD so I wouldn't be put off this deal just because you have younger children in mind; it's also the sort of thing that can be put away to be enjoyed in years to come.
The books in this collection are:
- Fantastic Mr Fox
- The Witches
- The Twits
- James and the Giant Peach
- Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
- The BFG
- The Magic Finger
- The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me
- Boy Take of Childhood
- Danny the Champion of the World
- George's Marvellous Medicine
- Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator
- Esio Trot
- Going Solo
The nightly ritual of the bedtime story is hands down one of my favourite parts of being a parent and as my kids get old enough to concentrate that little bit more, I'm loving rediscovering classics from my own childhood with them. This is a really lovely set and one I can't resist. I'm itching to retrace Danny's footsteps and watch my boys' faces light up as they encounter the Champion of the World for the first time. Priceless.
