My 5 year old daughter adores Olivia and we all love listening to Dame Edna read the stoties in the car. Dame Edna is hilarious reading these stories - amusing for the grown ups in a different way it amuses the kids - just like ian falconer's writing itself.
Great rendition by reader. Enchanting characters. But be warned that this audio version should not be purchased as a stand-alone. My kids and I have not read the Olivia books in print, and there are many passages that either don't make sense without pictures or would probably be funny if you'd seen the picture book.
Love this reading of the Olivia books!! Dame Edna is perfect, as is the music that accompanies the dialogue. My three year old never gets tired of listening to this in the car, and neither do I!
