Tall tales and other stretches of the imagination characterize Ben Izzy's story selection on this CD recorded live before an audience of enthusiastic young children. With a warm and friendly presentation, Ben Izzy reaches out to his audience, drawing them in as participants in an interactive community experience. The teller's choice of story content, along with effective pacing for emphasis and exaggeration, reflects his insightful grasp of what appeals to youngsters. Joyful, lively music composed and recorded by Joshua Raoul Brody provides a vaudevillian interlude between selections. Long stories and the teller's limited vocal repertoire do not mar the exuberant reception of this storytelling performance by its young audience. R.M.
