The absolutely fabulous Joanna Lumley reads two of Roald Dahl's touching tales, Esio Trot and The Minpins, for this unabridged audiobook edition.
Esio Trot is Dahl's wonderful, warm-hearted story about Mr Hoppy, Mrs Silver and the tortoise who brings them together. In The Minpins, Little Billy doesn't really believe there are monsters in the wood, but the tiny minpins are real enough and their miniature world is in danger.

Roald Dahl, the best-loved of children's writers, was born in Wales of Norwegian parents. After going to school in England he went to work for Shell in Africa. He began to write after 'a monumental bash on the head' sustained as an RAF pilot in World War II. Roald Dahl died in 1990.
Joanna Lumley was born in India and grew up in England and the Far East. Renowned for her roles both on the screen and in the theatre, Joanna has played the part of Leggy Purdey in The New Avengers, a Bond girl in On Her Majesty's Secret Service and, perhaps most famously, Patsy Stone in the Bafta Award-winning series Absolutely Fabulous.
