Editorial Reviews

Newly remastered for digital formats, this definitive recording of Hans Christian Andersen's six best-loved stories is performed by Diane Wolkstein, the artistic director of the Hans Christian Anderson Center in New York City. Wolkstein, who has won the prestigious Circle of Excellence Award from the National Storytelling Network, has told Andersen stories for many years. Her experience is clear with her simple but effective narration, populated by characters full of life and sympathy. Wolkstein's performance doesn't lose its charm even with repeat listens - a good thing as children will want to play this audiobook over and over again.
