"From Jim Dale's fully voiced reading of 'Rumpelstiltskin' to Kate Rudd's formal narration of 'Little Snow-White' and Dion Graham's lightly accented rendition of 'The Twelve Huntsmen, ' these are stellar performances. A mixture of short and long tales provides a nice blend of listening experiences with whimsical musical interludes."--AudioFile Earphones Award Winner
"[There] remains something untameable about these enigmatic stories of cruel parents, brave tailors, cannibalistic witches, enchanted princes and princesses, and big bad wolves...Each tale gets a different narrator, chosen from the starry firmament of the audiobook world...[Roy] Dotrice delivers the only biblically themed tale in the bunch and sounds like the voice of the Lord himself."--The New York Times
