    The great myths of Ancient Greece have inspired mankind for centuries. Each of the heroes has to undergo trials of strength and courage to prove his valor against a host of monsters - the Minotaur, half man, half bull; Hydra, the many-headed serpent; Medusa the Gorgon. Meanwhile, the gods, lead by Zeus the Thunderer from his seat on Mount Olympus, watch, encourage, help - and sometimes hinder.

    Overall

    This is a is a fine production of a selection of the most well-known of the Greek myths and could serve as an entertaining introduction to these classic stories. My one complaint, however, is that this particular rendering of the myths is unnecessarily violent and gristly in it?s detailing of the exploits of the Greek heroes, especially for younger listeners.

    The good Doctor Dolittle, accompanied by his devoted animal friends, sets sail once again. This time it is a voyage of discovery, to learn the secret of the Shellfish language, and to teach Tommy Stubbins, the Doctor's young protege, all there is to know about animals and their languages. Choosing their destination by opening an atlas, closing their eyes, and touching the page with a pencil, they set off on the most amazing voyage.

    Overall

    This is a lovely, meandering account of Dr. D.'s adventures in the south Atlantic. Not exactly action-packed, but full of wonderfully quirky details. The reader does a fine job with the animal voices, although some of the language and accents may be difficult for very young listeners.

    A Civil War sword, a watermelon stabbing, missing roller skates, a trapeze artist's inheritance and an eyewitness who's legally blind! Encyclopedia Brown must solve cases by using his famous computer-like brain. Try to crack the cases along with him!

    Overall

    These short mysteries are great for the younger listener (5-8). Even after hearing the stories a few times, my 2 still like to accompany Encyclopedia on his detective work. Good narrator.
