To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I love David Walliams so for this to be such a disappointing cd is a hard pill to swallow. The stories are not pitched at the right age range, my 3 1/2 year old didn’t even raise a smile. That’s because the stories are just not funny. Maybe the humour is suited to a 6 year old boy, but the storyline to toddlers? I just felt like everything failed. The first story is basically a complete (poor substitute) rip off of The Tiger that came to Tea. Don’t buy this cd. There’s much better out there to chose from.
Bought this for my grandsons (4 and 2) as a change from the usual songs we play (If I hear Miss Polly one more time .... !!!!) and they loved the stories and the wonderful voices plus sound effects. Our favourite is Miranda and her snake Penelope :-)
Why did I buy this? I've hated all David Walliams books so why was this going to be any different?! I also got the book for each of the stories on the cd. They are simply terrible stories, supposedly for the younger children. Utter drivel, not remotely funny. Off to charity shop went the cd and the books!
Good stories although the beginning and end commentaries are tiresome. Difficult to know which age range they are aimed at as it says very young but define very young. 5 year olds don’t really appreciate the stories.
