Out loud and in its entirety.

She was better at it than Tony Robinson or maybe it's just that my 6 year old mind was more impressed by her rendition. Whichever it was, the title has been in my head ever since, along with at least some of the scenes in the story. It's a simple kind of story but with enough nuance to be interesting and if you are listening along with younger readers nobody will get lost and nobody should get bored.

The language is simple without being condescending and Robinson actually does a very good job with it. It's about the kind of everyday adventures that I had as a boy with just a little bit of extension to make them that bit more exciting. The kind of thing that we certainly used to believe was just about possible before, sadly, we learned better.

Share it with a child before they learn better. Kids love it, a funny story. You will love it. Robinson is perfect for this story. Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why? Its a great story for kids but also for adults wanting some nostalgia.

However, he began his career at the age of 13 in the original stage version of Oliver! England The filthy genes of the Blackadder dynasty bubble to the surface of history's melting pot as Lord Edmund, arrogant peer-about-town, swaggers with a big head and small beard in search of grace and favour from the stark raving mad Queen Bess. With a ya boo sucks to you fritzy, hot tiddly tumble, it's off to Western Front Captain Blackadder, hero of Mboto Gorge, joined the British Army when it was little more than a travel agency for gentlemen with an abnormally high sex drive.

Sir Tony Robinson is a much-loved actor, presenter and author with a stellar career lasting over 50 years. Now, in his long-awaited autobiography, he reveals how the boy from South Woodford went from child stardom in the first stage production of Oliver! For Mort, a scythe is about to become one of the tools of his trade. Henceforth, Death is no longer going to be the end, merely the means to an end. He has received an offer he can't refuse. As Death's apprentice, he'll have free board and use of the company horse.

And being dead isn't compulsory. It's a dream job - until he discovers that it can be a love-life killer. And particularly when your only visible means of support is a recently acquired qualification from the Guild of Assassins.

All is not well within the Unseen University. The endemic politics of the place have ensured that it has finally got what it wished for: the most powerful wizard on the disc - which could mean that the death of all wizardry is at hand. And that the world is going to end, depending on whom you listen to.

Sir Tony Robinson is a much-loved actor, presenter and author with a stellar career lasting over 50 years.
