Publisher's Summary

Audrey Hepburn's narration brings to life four entertaining fairytales for children and adults alike. Included here are "The Sleeping Princess", "Tom Thumb", "Laideronette, Empress of the Pagodas", and "Beauty and the Beast", charming stories that demonstrate the power of unselfish devotion and courage and the triumph of true love. This Grammy Award-winning performance by the late film legend features not only sound effects and music from Maurice Ravel's "Mother Goose Suite" spread liberally throughout the hour, but also a background story of the composer Ravel telling these tales to two young children, as remembered by one child when she was an elderly lady, all delivered in Audrey Hepburn's uniquely cultured style.

Magical!

Enjoyed hearing the stories by Audrey Hepburn, it created a magical atmosphere for me. The selection of books are really good and the background music and voice modulation is great! I wish there were more books similar to this one.
