"Roald Dahl sometimes shared a tonal kinship with Ogden Nash, and he could demonstrate a verbal inventiveness nearly Seussian [His] stories work better in audio than in print." -The New York Times FANTASTIC MR. FOX Nobody outfoxes Fantastic Mr. Fox! Someone's been stealing from the three meanest farmers around, and they know the identity of the thief-it's Fantastic Mr. Fox! Working alone they could never catch him; but now fat Boggis, squat Bunce, and skinny Bean have joined forces, and they have Mr. Fox and his family surrounded. What they don't know is that they're not dealing with just any fox-Mr. Fox would rather die than surrender. Only the most fantastic plan can save him now. ESIO TROT An ancient spell, 140 tortoises, and a little bit of magic Mr. Hoppy is in love with his neighbor, Mrs. Silver; but she is in love with someone else-Alfie, her pet tortoise. With all her attention focused on Alfie, Mrs. Silver doesn"t even know Mr. Hoppy is alive. And Mr. Hoppy is too shy to even ask Mrs. Silver over for tea. Then one day Mr. Hoppy comes up with a brilliant idea to get Mrs. Silver's attention. If Mr. Hoppy's plan works, Mrs. Silver will certainly fall in love with him. After all, everyone knows the way to a woman"s heart is through her tortoise. THE ENORMOUS CROCODILE The Enormous Crocodile is a horrid greedy grumptious brute who loves to guzzle up little boys and girls.

THE GIRAFFE AND THE PELLY AND ME Who needs a ladder when you"ve got a giraffe with an extended neck? The Ladderless Window-Cleaning Company certainly doesn't. They don"t need a pail, either, because they have a pelican with a bucket-sized beak. With a monkey to do the washing and Billy as their manager, this business is destined for success. Now they have their big break-a chance to clean all 677 windows of the Hampshire House, owned by the richest man in all of England! That"s exciting enough, but along the way there are surprises and adventures beyond their wildest window-washing dreams. From the Compact Disc edition.Show more

I am the cat who walks by himself and all places are alike to me' Here are the delightful stories which Kipling first told his own children before setting them down on paper. How the Camel got his Hump, How the Leopard got his spots, How the Elephant got his Trunk, The Butterfly that Stamped, and many others. They remain popular, entertaining every generation, partly because of the story and partly because of the vivid way they are written. To hear them - unabridged as they are here - is to enjoy them in their original form.Show more
