Possibly the most perfect vehicle for sharing traditional folk tales is the audio presentation. Of course, an equally vital ingredient is an apt reader or storyteller. Narrator Martin Jarvis is a magnificent presenter of this rich variety of tales. His command of the many accents of the British Isles is unbelieveable--and is coupled with his ability to mimic old ladies, ghosts, fairies and all the other ingredients which comprise the folklore genre. This selection is perfect for adults as well as children and would be a wonderful addition to an audio collection. S.G.B. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 93]
