I'm a mom. I have drama in my life. I don't want books with the F-bomb, nor graphic violence. I read for fun and to bring my family together. I read for reducing stress levels. We have never had a television in our home and our children are now mid twenties to 19. We listen together and look for belly-wrenching laughter. So what is it like to live without a TV? Awesomely educational and inspirational. Each new book is a marvel.

    Rip Van Winkle lives in a nice village at the foot of New York's Catskill Mountains. One autumn day he escapes his nagging wife by wandering up the mountains. After encountering strangely dressed men, rumored to be the ghosts of Henry Hudson's crew, who are playing nine-pins, and after drinking some of their liquor, he settles down under a shady tree and falls asleep. He wakes up 20 years later and returns to his village.

    Overall

    I have never read, or had read to me, the story of Rip Van Winkle. This was rather cute and nicely narrated. The phone keep ringing during this audio and I finally had to turn off the ringer. Once I backed up for the final time I really enjoyed some of the references to adults. I am sure this is always classified as a children's story, but I couldn't help wonder how many children know what being hen pecked means. Worth a few good laughs.

    The Shadow is in the middle of an event in Chinatown. The residents are hiding information and a murder takes place. Not the strongest story but a simple tale and enjoyable listen.

    At first I thought this episode was about a crazy cat and I was going to say that I can relate. However this starts out with a delivery of a cat by the new pet shop owner who then goes missing. A sad story.

    right from the bodies of the victims. Jewelry and bonds are stolen in public places when the victims appear to be attacked by no physical person. The Shadow is blamed for the invisible attacks where a card is left saying 'From the Little Man That Wasn't There'
