The Fool and the Flying Ship | [Rabbit Ears Entertainment]

The Fool and the Flying Ship

Long ago in Russia, a proclamation went out through all the land that whosoever could build a flying ship would win the hand of the Tsar's daughter. But when a country bumpkin and his oddball crew of extraordinary friends show up to claim her, the dumbfounded Tsar quickly has second thoughts. This hilarious retelling of a fantastical Russian folktale will be a delightful treat for your family.

    "Russian Folktale retold from the master of comedy!"

    "The Fool and the Flying Ship" is a wonderful audiobook to listen to! Robin Williams was so hilarious when he narrated this story as he uses Russian accents that were so good that even I was speechless when I listen to this story. Robin Williams adds in over-the-top jokes that makes this story hilarious and creative to listen to. The Klezmer Conservatory Band's music is raucous and creative as it fits the wacky mood of this story perfectly. I would strongly recommend this audiobook to children of all ages for its good humor and hilarious narration done well by the master of comedy himself, Robin Williams.

    "Priceless voice work by Robin Williams"
    Where does The Fool and the Flying Ship rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one of my favorite audio books as an adult. I love the antic, folktale-esque qualities of the text and Robin Williams iis the only performer who could do it justice.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Too many to list. Give it a listen and you'll understand.


    Any additional comments?

    THANK YOU for making this older, possibly out-of-print recording available!
