Audible Editor Reviews

In 1905 Hamilton Wright Mabie published Fairy Tales Every Child Should Know, as distinguished from the author's similar works, Famous Stories Every Child Should Know and Myths Every Child Should Know. What does Mabie require children to know in this audiobook? Actress Samantha Worthen tells listeners the familiar fairy tales of Cinderella, Puss in Boots, and Sleeping Beauty as well as lesser known tales from The Arabian Nights, the Brothers Grimm, Aesop's Fables, Charles Perault, Hans Christian Andersen, and others. Worthen's warm, amiable, child-friendly voice brings a light to sometimes dark material. In classic children's narratives she has clearly found a genre where she can shine.

    "Good Stories"

    I enjoyed listening to the stories that I already knew and being introduced to the ones I hadn't.

    Story
    "Too American for me"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Don't get me wrong, I love most things American - great writers, actors, TV dramas, movies - cultural beacon of the western world, etc. But the narrator was just too saccharine-sweet, monotonously ploddingly cutesy for my taste - and, I suspect, for any Brit's taste. To be fair, the stories are good and my children seem to like it (I bought this for long car journeys), but it would be sooo much better with a different narrator.
