Seasoned storyteller Jim Weiss offers three traditional fairy tales: the Grimm Brothers' "Twelve Dancing Princesses" and "Snow White and Rose Red" and Charles Perrault's "Sleeping Beauty." Weiss's retellings are faithful to the old stories. His clear voice, careful pacing and dramatic emphases draw listeners into his storytelling circle and hold them there until each tale is told out. Weiss also sings two short songs: "Dance Away Home" and "Snow White and Rose Red." The tunes are catchy, and Weiss has a pleasant singing voice. The lyrics, however, are not equal to the quality of the stories. C.R.A. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 98]
