    An old favorite and true classic

    I am 36 and expecting our first child in January and I cannot wait to play these wonderful fun-loving books that I remember so vividly enjoying as a child. I was so thrilled to find the audio book here. My brother and I of course had the cassette tape of these bookas as well as the soft cover and still today laugh and talk of the memories of Francis her little sister Gloria and all of her friends getting in to mischeif. My favorite is when Frances gets upset and runs away from home under the dinning room table! Also the alphatbet song she composess'...S is for skateboard, T is for tigger, U is for underwear down in the dryer...' The narrator has a cozy and inviting voice with a British accent that somehow makes you enjoy the story even more.

    My children,  my spouse and I all loved this collection. We still quote it, though my kids are now in their twenties.  Glynis Johns is the perfect reader, gently capturing the emotions of the characters, particularly Frances. Now I can't wait to share this with my granddaughter.
