Can anyone recommend any French audiobooks, or favourite readers?

 

I'm looking for children's books (translated are fine) read not too quickly, with not too thick an accent. I suppose I mean not too regional.

 

I am adding some extra read-along time to build fluency this year.

I'm only aware of Black Cat and Eli readers, but these are more geared to 10+ yo imo

Something for my 9 year old. Any length is fine.

Gallimard-jeunesse.fr has a good list of audio books then. Roald Dahl, the Petit Nicholas books, Harry Potter, Treasure Island, Pinocchio, etc.
Actually, scratch Harry Potter because Bernard Giraudeau did full voices for every character, which sometimes goes really fast. The others, you can listen to audio samples and see what you like.

Are these only available on CD (like this http://www.gallimard...sseur-a-disparu )?

I'd love to have something like audible for French.

Well of course there IS audible in French :) You can make an audible.fr account and some amount of French content is available on US audible if that is where you are.

I've never used it but a quick search showed audioteka.com as a possible alternative, but it looks wildly expensive.

Thanks for the suggestions!  

 

I didn't realize that audible.fr existed. :)
