Matilda

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang
Chitty Chitty Bang Bang By Fleming, Ian (Audiobook CD - 2003 ) CD Children FLEMING All copies in use Availability details

Annotation:My favorite part of this silly book is the way narrator Andrew Sachs reads the onomatopoeic voice of the car with the license plate GEN 11.

The Collected Stories of Winnie-the-Pooh
The Collected Stories of Winnie-the-Pooh By Milne, A. A. (Audiobook CD - 2009 ) CD Children MILNE Available in some locations

Annotation:I'm not usually a fan of dramatized stories, but this cast convinced me. It includes Stephen Fry (Pooh), Judi Dench (Kanga) and Jane Horrocks as a memorable Piglet. Also available to download.

The Borrowers
