Editorial Reviews

Here is a compilation of famous English fairy tales. Although they employed fantasy and often showcased young protagonists, fairy tales were originally meant for adults. Over time the stories grew familiar, moving from strange to charming, and becoming escapist morality plays for all. Some beloved fairy tales originated in England. Narrator Joanna Daniell does justice to each story here. Her voice has a warm, mature timbre. She performs the stories at a leisurely pace so that young listeners can follow along, and older ones can relish the wonderful quirkiness of each piece. And Daniell very convincingly manifests an assortment of quaint characters, many of whom have thick colloquial accents. Her flexible voice slips back and forth between dialogue and narrative with ease.

Publisher's Summary

While fairy tales were not originally intended for children, they have become a staple of children's literature since the early 19th century. Here is a collection of English fairy tales, including many stories you will remember from childhood.
