This is the story of a small Japanese boy whose only interest is drawing pictures of cats...even while everyone else in the village is struggling to defeat a mysterious demon that plagues the countryside.

This haunting and enchanting folktale about finding your place in the world resonates with deep respect for and appreciation of Japanese culture.
"Great Story with a Beautiful Production"
If this one is your first Dr. Seuss audiobook I highly recommend "The Cat in the hat and other Dr. Seuss Favorites" instead: the stories - in my opinion - are better for listening that the ones included here.
Long ago in Russia, a proclamation went out through all the land that whosoever could build a flying ship would win the hand of the Tsar's daughter.

This hilarious retelling of a fantastical Russian folktale will be a delightful treat for your family.

Come with us to an Enchanted Place, a forest where Winnie-the-Pooh lived with Piglet, Rabbit, Owl, Eeyore, Kanga, and Little Roo. The stories are about Christopher Robin and these good companions having wonderful times getting in and out of trouble. It is all very exciting and, really, quite thrilling no matter how young or old you may be. It is painful to try and imagine what the world would be like without them.

A mouse is taking a stroll through the deep, dark woods when along comes a hungry fox, then an owl, and then a snake. The mouse is good enough to eat, but smart enough to know this - so he invents...the gruffalo! As Mouse explains, the gruffalo is a creature with terrible claws, terrible tusks in its terrible jaws, knobbly knees and turned-out toes, and a poisonous wart at the end of its nose. But Mouse has no worries. After all, there's no such thing as a gruffalo...is there?
