    Here is a wonderful collection of classic children's tales told with humor and heartfelt charm. Featured are the beloved favorite "Little Red Riding Hood", Hans Christian Andersen's "The Pea Blossom" and "The Nightengale", and L. Frank Baum's hilarious tale of the mixed-up "Man in the Moon".

    The narrator between stories is so annoying and the music is terrible. The stories are also not very interesting. There is an entire story about two kids slipping in the mud. I recommend Fifty Famous Fairy Tales instead.

    This is the story of Despereaux Tilling, a mouse in love with music, stories, and a princess named Pea. It is also the story of a rat called Roscuro, who lives in darkness but covets a world filled with light. And it is the story of Miggery Sow, a slow-witted serving girl with a simple, impossible wish. These characters are about to embark on a journey that will lead them down into a horrible dungeon, up into a glittering castle, and ultimately, into each other's lives.

    Kimberly says: "A fabulous family adventure!"
    "Great story, well narrated"
    Overall

    This story is so wonderful and so wonderfully well written. I love how the author makes the reader, or in this case listener part of the story. The narrator is fantastic. He reads clearly and dramatizes the voices so well. Both my 4 and 7 year olds love it.

    Here is a timeless and wonderful collection from the best sources of fairy tales: Hans Christian Andersen, Charles Perrault, the Brothers Grimm, and Antoine Galland.

    "good narration, easy to understand"
    Overall

    I downloaded a few different fairy tales series for my kids to listen to in the car. This was by far the best. A lot of the other stories that I downloaded had complex language that made it hard for my kids (4 and 7) to understand. This one is free of annoying music and the narrator speaks with a clear american accent. Several of the other story collections were narrated by people with thick English accents making it hard for young American ears to understand. This is also 6 hours long which is great because it provides so many hours of entertainment and also, the adult is not forced to listen to the same stories over and over again.
