My naughty little sister is the naughtiest little girl
in the world, and there's double trouble with her best friend,
Bad Harry. There's a peculiar pile of green mouldy crusts
on the floor - where has it come from? Bad Harry gets covered
in polish and sawdust, but he doesn't think that's naughty
at all. And why on earth are those children taking pieces
of cheese and bacon rind to the library...?
Naughty Little Sister and Bad Harry is a double CD collection
that contains a number of short stories about a loveable,
irrepressibly mischievous little girl who is always getting
into trouble. This collection of short stories pairs her up
with Bad Harry - which means a double helping of trouble.
collection is read by Jan Francis, and was originally written
for the BBC's Listen With Mother radio programme. All
the stories are based on Dorothy Edwards's stories, which
were themselves recollections of her own childhood with her
naughty little sister.
the stories have been in print for over 50 years the term
is not used in the same way as we do today. There's no burning
down of schools or robbing the elderly to pay for drugs. This
is more a collection of tales about two children who are very
curious about the world they live in. For example, in one
tale Bad Harry feeds a mouse in the local library that's been
there for ages.
retelling of these classic tales is worth mentioning too.
Her delivery is fantastic, as are her vocal talents. I didn't
know what to expect from her reading, but having experienced
it I can honestly say that I can't think of anyone better
to tell these tales than her.
collection is ideal for bedtimes. Parents can easily stick
a CD on and let their little ones listen to one short tale
before going to sleep.
double CD collection represents excellent value for money
and will find a welcome place in the hearts of young souls,
and their parents.
