    Story
    "Love this narrator."
    Where does Aesop's Fables rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Our children listen to audio books while we travel and they really liked this book. This is a good addition to our collection. We especially think the narrator does a good job telling the stories.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Aesop's Fables?

    Our kids liked the milkmaid who keeps getting her words wrong.


    Have you listened to any of Rand Whipple’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, I bought this book because we had listened to Jack, The Beanstalk and Other Stories on a trip. We were surprised because the narrator sounds southern in that book but isn't in this one. Both books made us laugh. They were different but both fun.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. We wished there were more stories to listen to since we were traveling.


    Any additional comments?

    The author (who is also the narrator) does a good job of expanding the fables into full stories. Each one lasts a few minutes. He also gives the stories a sense of humor that adults enjoy. We liked listening to both of his books as a family.

    If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Not really sure who would enjoy it more...


    What was most disappointing about Rand Whipple’s story?

    We were just really disappointed by the modern twist. In reflection we want our children to learn the classics - as classics, as opposed to having a modern twist.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Aesop's Fables?

    Anything related to modern times...


    Any additional comments?

    Rand has a great voice and I am certain he would captivate our children's attention, just wish it was true to original content.
