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....

Pretty good. It's not Focus on the Family Radio Theater, but it's fairly decent.
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.)
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.
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.
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!
The narrated voice was annoying and the material was trite.
How could it have been worse?
