 My daughter loves it March 18, 2014 By Petros L. (Providence, RI) See All My Reviews "First and foremost, my 7-year-old daughter loves it and keeps asking for it. The narrator is excellent, speaks very naturally, informally, but clearly. He is also very convincing when making different voices. The music in all three tales sounds attractive to me. I am ambivalent about the frequent use of different musical styles and quotations, but they are dramatically effective. The music is often very descriptive and thus helps visualize the stories - not a bad thing for kids to listen to. The LPO plays impeccably." Report Abuse
