Children Ages 8+ • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2002

In these popular stories, Levine transforms familiar standbys (like "Cinderella" and "Sleeping Beauty") into longer, more thought-provoking tales that pose interesting questions. Is being too good boring? How much dust accumulates on the face of a princess sleeping for 100 years? What does turning into a toad actually FEEL like? Lili Taylor reads these six stories earnestly, leaving their humor to be discovered by listeners. Her pleasant, slightly husky voice distinguishes kings and queens, dairymaids and princes, easily transporting listeners to long-ago, faraway settings. Taylor piques children's curiosity while satisfying them with the security of happy endings. J.C.G. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 03]
