With all the high-tech entertainment available to children these days, it’s refreshing to find a collection of classic fairy tales. “The Pied Piper,” “Cinderella,” “Rumpelstiltskin,” and “The Billy Goats Gruff” sound better than ever in Peter Coombe's capable hands. His Australian accent lends the tales a touch of formality, but he can also be silly, especially as the smallest goat. The troll stutters convincingly as he falls for the logic of the billy goats. The songs and sound effects are delightful. Kids might even turn off the latest animated game in favor of Coombe's splendid production.
