Good stories

Very good stories marred by one small area. They need to be read by a variety of voices. The voice reading them is precise and clear. Almost too precise and clear, the way someone speaking English as a second language might enunciate. That said, the style detracts from any passion there may be in the text and after a while the stories begin to blend together because of it. Can't fault the diction, I just miss the passion. But the tales ARE good

Makeshift stories

Brilliant. I particularly like the variety of story lines. There is a real family effort in getting these stories out each month. Some episodes have 3 generations contributing to the making of a series. The variety of voices makes these stories very entertaining. My favourite characters are Evie, and Amos. Some of the episodes had me in stitches. Luki and company are a laugh a minute, particularly the missing socks episodes. Lately the episodes have moved into single stories. I particularly liked the different series. I can't wait for the writers to dream up some more story lines for my favourite characters. Please keep up the good work. Very entertaining and fun for all ages.
