High praise for this collection of fables and legends. Perhaps some of the stories are more familiar to British audiences, but many of them will be delightfully new to Americans. The international flavor of Russian, Bolivian, Japanese and Inuit legends is fascinating. Nigel Lambert treats each story to an individualized performance. His thoughtful characterizations, exaggerated or respectful as appropriate, combine with astute timing and his obvious interest in the literature. Combining the storyteller's approach with careful treatment of the history and the legends, Lambert provides entertainment for listeners of many ages. This program should be collected and cherished for the silver and gold of many happy listenings. R.F.W. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JAN 98]
