Notes and Editorial Reviews

What we have here is a children's disc - famous stories told in an intelligent and accessible way accompanied by music created for such... The stories are presented with energy and great panache, cleverly arranged for (mostly) violin and cello, and convincingly scored musically... The playing is superb; I cannot reasonably imagine better, and production values, like the wonderful cartoon images that adorn each side of each cover of the disc are clever and very well done.

-- Steven Ritter, Audiophile Audition
