One of the best ways to share a special Christmas moment with the family is to enjoy listening to a Christmas story together. The perfect accompaniment while decorating the tree, wrapping gifts, preparing food for guests or on a long drive to visit friends and family. Whatever way you are spending the season, listening to a mix of classic stories that you may have read during your childhood – such as Enid Blyton’s collection of Christmas tales or a new, funny and quirky story such as Can Dr Proctor Save Christmas by best-selling author Jo Nesbo – is a great way to keep little people entertained.
All the excitement and fun of Christmas is brilliantly portrayed on this CD of stories and song, full of the joy and spirit of the festive season.
From the much-loved Eloise at Christmastime brilliantly told by actress Sophie Lee to the rollicking Crisis on Christmas Eve humorously read by Mark Mitchell, children will love this special collection.
Join Kym Lardner and friends telling a beautiful version of the traditional Christmas nativity story and actor Jane Clifton as she sings A Bellbird in a Flame Tree: The Twelve Days of Christmas. Christmas Stories for Kids is brimming with the happiness of this special season.

Can Doctor Proctor, Nilly, and Lisa save Christmas in this fart-tastically funny adventure from worldwide bestselling author Jo Nesbø?
When the king of Norway sells the rights to Christmas to Mr Thrane, it looks like the holidays aren’t going to be very merry. Mr Thrane says that the only people who can celebrate are those who buy 10,000 crowns worth of presents from his department store. For anyone who doesn’t – or can’t – spend that much, it’s no tree, no presents, no carols and no Christmas pudding.
Doctor Proctor, Nilly and Lisa aren’t going to take this sitting down! They’re going to find Santa and save Christmas. All they need is a sleigh, flying reindeer, some time travel soap and, of course, some fart powder!

Once again, General Marchmouse and his brother officers must ride to the rescue and save the day. But can they get the Nutmouses out of this tight scrape and will Arthur and Lucy get their presents in time for Chrismas morning?
