Would you consider the audio edition of The Wombles to be better than the print version?
I wouldn't say one version is better than another, but Bernard Cribbins does a great job narrating, and we can listen as a family and enjoy the book together (one of the things we love about audio books in general).
What other book might you compare The Wombles to and why?
The story reminded us of a combination of The Wind in the Willows, The Borrowers, A Bear Called Paddington, the hobbits from Tolkien, and Fraggle Rock
Any additional comments?
We thought this story was just adorable. We did laugh out loud several times. We'd like to hear more of the Wombles books, especially if they're narrated by Bernard Cribbins, for it's nice to have the continuity in a series.
This is a series of short stories, rather than one long one; perfect for a stop/start car journeys. It's ideal for younger audiences. If you like Winnie-the-Poo, then you'll love this. Lots of furry little creatures getting into scrapes - but nothing too frightening. Also Bernard Cribbins has a wonderful voice. Could listen to him for hours. Even my 7 yr old (Ben 10, Biker Mice from Mars) was enjoying it!

I have fond memories of watching the Wombles on TV when I was a child and so downloaded it recently for my two sons.
They both LOVED it and the youngest one listens to these stories over and over! Interestingly I also found them some of the original TV programmes, but these haven't held them nearly as well as the audiobooks!
One of the best audiobooks I've downloaded! Well done
