This enchanting collection, retold by writer and critic Naomi Lewis, contains eight of Hans Christian Andersen’s magnificent fairy tales. It includes Thumbelina, a little girl no more than a thumb-joint high, The Emperor’s New Clothes, the tale of a man who cares only for his appearance and The Little Mermaid, who longs to one day marry a human prince.

    What did you like best about Hans Andersen's Fairy Tales? What did you like least?

    The narrator was far and away the best thing about this book. The grimm nature of some of the stories would be best suited for a mature 3rd grader to possibly 6th grade student.


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    Clearness, perfect diction, and well reined accent made it easy for children to understand.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Enjoyable but had to turn car stereo volume up way too high to listen


    Would you be willing to try another one of the narrator’s performances?

    I will preview it and make sure the accent is reined in- accents are hard to hear in the car.

    What would have made The Berenstain Bears Holiday Audio Collection better?

    The muffled voice of the narrator, (presumedly the author?) was not adequate to even capture the the children's attention, let alone keep it. What a shame to miss out on a fun story.


    What didn’t you like about Stan and Jan Berenstain ’s performance?

    Could not hear.

    First published by brothers Wilhelm and Jacob Grimm in 1812 as a collection of retold Germanic folk stories, this collection of such well-known fairytales as Rapunzel and Sleeping Beauty transports listeners to a realm where “Once upon a time” often ends up “happily ever after”…and where giants, princesses, kings and fairies pursue power, find true love, have all sorts of magical adventures — and in the process reveal multi-faceted truths about human nature.

    Gary says: "One of the most enjoyable audible books ever!"
    "Sorry, needs to be re-recorded."

    What disappointed you about Grimm's Fairy Tales?

    The classics were all there, however the voice was too "airy" and recorded very much quieter than other Audible books. (a mistake for a children's book)


    Would you be willing to try another book from Brothers Grimm? Why or why not?

    One needs to keep in mind, these are deep fairy tales with hard lessons. More suited for older gradeschool - middleschoolers.
