    A whimsical collection of fairy tales. Ever wished to be like Sleeping Beauty so you could take a nap - for once? Isn't it a bit annoying how the fairytale princes always get the girl, or how the three little pigs always beat the wolf? Well, that's all about to change.

    Where does Open Doors: Fractured Fairy Tales rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Pretty good. It's not Focus on the Family Radio Theater, but it's fairly decent.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Well, I listened to it because my story, the "Gingerbread Puppet Boy" (Section 60) is on the recording. I found the dramatic rendition to be highly entertaining--in fact it moved me to joyful tears. (I worked with the Tears of Joy Puppet Theater in Vancouver, WA years ago.)


    Which character – as performed by Andy Babinski – was your favorite?

    I thought the English accents were hilarious, especially since the story is set in the United States. The discrepancy, and Mr. Babinski's delightful stiff reading manner only added to the humor.


    If you could take any character from Open Doors: Fractured Fairy Tales out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Probably I'd take the puppeteer, his wife, and the puppets. Why not? It would be fun. I'd want to ask them to speculate as to why people felt an irresistible compulsion to chase him.


    Any additional comments?

    Just one critical remark: The audio book should contain a printed Table of Contents that includes the titles and author's names. Also, a way to link directly to a story without scrolling through them all. And the cover of the book itself could be better, much better!
