 Memorable Recording with Hermione Gringold March 29, 2016 By A. Byrne (Pokfulam, Hong Kong) See All My Reviews "I had this album on tape as a child and was delighted to find it on CD so I was able to share it with my own children. Hermione Gringold's voice adds such drama to the recording- my children (and I) love it. Very pleased with the quick shipping to Hong Kong also." Report Abuse
 Absolutely perfect October 15, 2014 By Jane M. (Parkville, Victoria) See All My Reviews "I had this CD on a cassette when my children were young and we loved listening to it in the car. I was so delighted to find that Arkiv Music had made the CD and I now listen to it with my 2 year old grand-daughter. Hermione Gingold is an absolute delight." Report Abuse
