SPOOKY CLASSICS FOR CHILDREN

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Jim Weiss

Children Family Listening • 1 hr. • Audio Program • ©

Unsuspecting listeners of all ages, prepare to be delighted by Jim Weiss’s rendition of three classic stories! Some listeners may be familiar with Oscar Wilde’s The Canterville Ghost, but perhaps not as this lighthearted romp depicts the distinguished spirit. In this version he is tormented by the “modern-American” Otis family. Memorable, indeed, is the ghost practicing his moans in front of a mirror. The Hawthorne and Kipling will be new to many, but Weiss has found elements--the fountain of youth and an Indian wizard--designed to engage young listeners. Weiss’s special blend of characters and expression, along with a vibrant connection to the stories’ literary heritage, makes his storytelling exceptional. R.F.W.
