I'm familiar with Crackanory from having watched a few episodes of the TV show. I couldn't resist the free audio books when I saw them available on Audible.

I found the stories in these audiobooks hugely entertaining. Each story is narrated by a different celebrity who add their own unique slant to the story and characters.

Both volumes contain a wide range of stories across different genres so cater to everyone's tastes.
