Trade Ed. Yvonne Healy 2002
CD ISBN $14.95 One CDs
This title overstates things a bit--how much of the world can you fit into eight tales? But Yvonne Healy makes up for that by providing plenty of heart in her storytelling. Healy is unafraid to amuse her listeners in any way possible and throws herself into these stories with gusto--singing, laughing, and shouting as required and easily transforming herself from a weeping Scottish lass to a people-eating monster from Micronesia. Some stories are on the longer side, and Healy doesn't hurry through them, which is refreshing in these channel-zapping times. Kids will enjoy these tales, especially Healy's way of telling them. J.C.G.
