A Very Funny Outcome to a Very Tricky Predicament

What made the experience of listening to The Treebobs Rescue Rotten Rena the most enjoyable?

The children kept interested because they wanted to know how Rotten Rena's problem could be solved. They particularly loved the squabbling between the two witches and thought it was very funny

Who was your favorite character and why?

The Treebobs are lovely but the two witches Rotten Rena and Badlot Barbara "steal the show"

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Definitely

Any additional comments?

It was so absorbing. It would be lovely to have some "Treebob" themed toys. I've already been asked for a flying pip!!! Unfortunately for now it looks like it's down to egg boxes and sticky backed plastic

A Very Funny and Jolly Story

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Treebobs and the Giant Mole?

The song was very very catchy and we found ourselves humming the tune a long time afterwards

Have you listened to any of Lindsay Abbott’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

She is a very good narrator and this is up to her usual high standard

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

A brilliant example of how the coming together of the smallest people can solve a problem caused by an enormous nuisance!

Any additional comments?

This was a lovely story. I love the way this author conjurs together humour and strife and brings it all to a very satisfactory outcome for everyone

This is the perfect book for Christmas. We like tales that have a moral feel to them. It was humorous and enchanting. The children were attentive throughout and want to hear more stories about the people in the forest.
