Editorial Reviews

Taken from Grimm’s Fairy Tales, this enduring European story recounts the adventures of a destitute soldier who makes a desperate deal with the devil, agreeing to let himself devolve into a kind of monster over the course of seven years, at the end of which, if he survives, he’ll be richly rewarded...perhaps even, if he’s lucky, with the ultimate gift: love.

Skilled voice actor Laura Paton’s performance is enlivened by her sly delivery, her light, wavering voice which always sounds like she’s telling a secret. Paton has a knack for pacing and narrates this engrossing tale so bewitchingly that the minutes, as you listen, seem genuinely to fly by!

Publisher's Summary

This is a story from the Grimm's Fairy Tales collection.

Here are some of the most enchanting fairy stories of all time. The Brothers Grimm conjure up a world of fantasy, hope and good fortune where the princess meets and marries the right prince (even if he once was a frog), and where the cruel witch, the arrogant wife and the greedy wolf get their comeuppance. It is a magical world which we must all inhabit at one time in our lives and which are as important in this computer age as ever before.
