Audible Editor Reviews

The Well of the World's End is a classic Scottish fairy tale on par with favorites such as the Frog Prince and Cinderella. Performed with a lively and dramatic commitment by accomplished narrator Jill Masters, this is the story of a young girl faced with an evil stepmother. After much abuse and exploitation, the stepmother finally sends the girl out on a task which she surely won't be able to complete. However, with the help of a friendly frog, the girl's fortunes quickly reverse themselves.

    "Great story"

    We heard this as part of a collection we got from the "regular" Audible.
    We loved them all but this one stood out. Glad to see AudibleKids is offering is as a "stand-alone."
