This special CD pack contains four of Roald Dahl's much-loved stories. THE GIRAFFE AND PELLY AND ME: In this classic story of the Ladderless Window-Cleaning Company, we accompany Billy, who is lucky enough to join in the many remarkable and entertaining adventures of the Company's animals: the giraffe with an incredible stretching neck, the pelican with a magical beak and the dancing monkey. ESIO TROT: Here's a very tortoisey one that will become an instant favourite! Mr Hoppy is in love with Mrs Silver, but she only has eyes for her tortoise Alfie. She would so love Alfie to grow bigger, she says. In a bold attempt to outdo his rival, Mr Hoppy devises an ingenious plan to make Alfie grow and grow and grow...Wonderfully brought to life, here we meet THE ENORMOUS CROCODILE. He boasts that he is going to eat a child for lunch and sets out to trick all the children in his attempts for food. But his plots and disguises are foiled by the animals in the jungle - especially by Trunky, the Elephant. FANTASTIC MR FOX: Boggis, Bunce and Bean are just about the nastiest and meanest three farmers you could meet. And they hate Mr Fox. They are determined to get him.
So they lie in wait outside his hole, ready to shoot, starve or dig him out. But clever Mr Fox has other plans! Find out what those plans are in this hilarious story, fully dramatized by Puffin Audiobooks.
Sitting in a hut at the bottom of his garden, surrounded by odd bits and pieces such as a suitcase (used as a footrest), his own hipbone (which he'd had replaced) and a heavy ball of metal foil (made from years' worth of chocolate wrappers), Roald Dahl wrote some of the world's best-loved stories including Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The Twits, The Witches, The BFG, Fantastic Mr Fox, James and the Giant Peach and lots more. Stephen Fry is an award-winning comedian, actor, presenter and director. He rose to fame alongside Hugh Laurie in A Bit of Fry and Laurie (which he co-wrote with Laurie) and Jeeves and Wooster, and was unforgettable as Captain Melchett in Blackadder. He also presented Stephen Fry: The Secret Life of the Manic Depressive, his groundbreaking documentary on bipolar disorder, to huge critical acclaim. His legions of fans tune in to watch him host the popular quiz show QI each week.
