Listeners will enjoy sampling stories from eight different countries, including Africa, Scotland, India, and Japan. The variety is enhanced by the excellent narrators featured, and by the fact that these stories will be new to many. Children will enjoy learning how Rabbit gets to the moon and how a fair-minded judge "punishes" a woman accused of stealing delicious scents from a bakery. Each tale is introduced by original music that captures the story's atmosphere--provided by Laura Hall, of the hit TV show "Whose Line Is it Anyway?" From the festive rhythms leading into a tale about the African trickster Anansi to the haunting strains introducing "The Selkie Bride," listeners will be captivated by this well-written and professionally made production.
