Editorial Reviews

Mark Twain, Lewis Carroll, and Rudyard Kipling are just a sampling of authors included in this collection of excerpts from some of the greatest children's stories ever written, all of which center around an iconic protagonist. From Pinocchio and Peter Pan to Anne of Green Gables and Matilda, literature's most beloved characters are celebrated, and Sean Bean and Garrick Hagon perform with a fanciful theatre, helping to create a rightful sense of awe and wonder. Heroes and Heroines from Classical Tales is a magical experience that brings together 15 of the world's best literary creations.

Publisher's Summary

Exciting excerpts from some of the best classic stories for younger listeners, presented with classical music and, often, sound effects, to bring the characters vividly to life. Here is Mowgli, Anne of Green Gables, Peter Pan, Pinocchio, Odysseus, the monster wolf Fenrir, and Tom Sawyer getting in and out of scrapes. Before each excerpt is an introduction, setting the scene.
