    Five favorite fables, retold by veteran storyteller Rand Whipple. These versions of Aesop's stories have a modern twist and a unique sense of humor. Includes "The Milkmaid and her Pail", "The Wind and the Sun", "The Crab and its Mother", "The Monkey and its Shadow", and "The Fox and the Crow".

    Where does Aesop's Fables rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Our children listen to audio books while we travel and they really liked this book. This is a good addition to our collection. We especially think the narrator does a good job telling the stories.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Aesop's Fables?

    Our kids liked the milkmaid who keeps getting her words wrong.


    Have you listened to any of Rand Whipple’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, I bought this book because we had listened to Jack, The Beanstalk and Other Stories on a trip. We were surprised because the narrator sounds southern in that book but isn't in this one. Both books made us laugh. They were different but both fun.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. We wished there were more stories to listen to since we were traveling.


    Any additional comments?

    The author (who is also the narrator) does a good job of expanding the fables into full stories. Each one lasts a few minutes. He also gives the stories a sense of humor that adults enjoy. We liked listening to both of his books as a family.

    Favorite Jack tales, retold and narrated by storyteller Rand Whipple. This collection includes "Jack and the Beanstalk", "Seven At A Whack" and "Jack and the Varmints". Each story has a backwoods 'twang' and a sly sense of humor. Favorite tales told by a favorite storyteller.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Jack, The Beanstalk and Other Tales to be better than the print version?

    These stories are a lot of fun. We listened to it as a family on a trip and it had a sense of humor that everyone enjoyed. The narrator has a good voice for this kind of story. I didn't read the print version but I think I would miss the narration in the printed book. The narrator has a good accent that fits the story really well.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The main character, Jack, of course. He is a little different in each story but he always succeeds.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    We liked the story Jack and the Varmints, especially when the robbers return to the house.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, we were traveling.


    Any additional comments?

    Just enjoyed it. I would recommend it as a book that has something for an adult sense of humor as well as a child's.
