Trade Ed. Linda Gorham 2003
CD ISBN $15.00 One CDs
In this wonderful collection (described as "Folktales and Character Stories with 'Attitude'"), Linda Gorham immediately grabs the attention of young listeners and never lets go. "I looove tellin' stories," she says, and listening to her animated, attractive voice, we believe her. These spirited retellings of different folktales offer an appealing variety, including selections from China, West Africa, and the Ukraine. Gorham engages young listeners by addressing them directly: "You all know about common sense, right?" she asks as she begins a tale about tricky, greedy Anansi the spider. Her beautiful voice, funny habit of drawing out certain words, and varied pace all create a valuable addition to one's storytelling collection. J.C.G.
