Publisher's Summary

Soothe your soul at bedtime as you listen to some of the world's most beautifully written classic stories, exquisitely read by Alison Larkin and Virginia McKenna. Alison's AudioFile Earphones award-winning reading of Peter Pan is followed by Through the Looking Glass and The Snow Queen. How the Elephant Got Its Trunk is read by Virginia McKenna, OBE, the iconic English actress best known for the films Born Free, A Town Like Alice, and Ring of Bright Water.

AudioFile Magazine raves about both narrators:

"The well-known characters in the much-loved story of Peter Pan are enlivened with humor and excitement in this gem. Narrator Alison Larkin breathes a unique personality and voice into each character."

"Virginia McKenna is wonderfully expressive. Her narration feels like she is reading a book to a group of children - a treat for children and adults alike."

This very special audiobook ends with Audie award-winning narrator Derek Perkins' reading of "Jabberwocky", exclusively for Audible.

Absolutely beautiful

I absolutely love this! I've loved Alison Larkin's voice ever since I heard her read Jane Austen's novels and is perfect for the stories she narrates here. Virginia McKenna is perfect for the Rudyard Kipling too. There's an innocence and purity about these stories and the voices of these particular narrators that missing in the modern world. What a wonderful soothing end to the day, listening to these superb narrators reading great children's classics ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFULLY. I love this. For some reason I got Volume 2 before I saw Volume 1 but I'm now ordering Volume one for my grand children AND for me. Top notch stuff. Bravo Audible.
