Glad Venturing On It

I am glad venturing on this particular book, it's not often I venture on children's book, it's a surprise find it interesting and engaging.

I would give my thumbs for the author and the narrator as well. The narrator performed so well and find it amazing that he could actually exploring every character in this book, with their own accent. So Lovely!!!

From Movie To Audio(book)

I had watched the movie Charlie And Chocolate Factory a few years back and I enjoyed it. Then I found another Roald Dahl's work on Audible, I just happily spent my credit on it. Now I downloaded it for my children to introduce them the beauty of audiobook.

Loved it!

My daughter loved this story so much, she wanted to listen to it twice in a row and has asked for it again now that it has finished... The story was lovely - it is such a beautiful relationship between father & son.
The narrator Peter Serafinowicz has a wonderfully pleasant voice!

Wonderful

My son and I listened to this on a long car trip and we were both enthralled! It's DAHL after all, so we had high expectations but it blew us away. The reader puts on all the voices and reads with the right amount of emotion. The 2 1/2 trip felt like 5mins!

Great Story for all ages!

On a long road trip our family were all engaged in the life of Danny, the relationship with his dad, the many characters we met along the way and how he was truly the Champion of the World. Such a well told story, clearly communicated, building each character and keeping the listener engrossed in the adventure. Would recommend for all the family and primary school age kids.
