With a gentleman's grace and a finely tuned ear for character voices, narrator Simon Jones does a wonderful job bringing to life this collection of children's fairy tales by one of the English language's greatest wits. Expanding on the original five stories, first published in 1888, this collection adds seven other gems, including the beguiling "Canterville Ghost," which gives Jones a chance to exercise a few of his comic American accents. Although written for children, Oscar Wilde's unique twists on children's literature are a little edgier, a bit more playful, a trifle wiser, and a lot more fun than your average fairy-tale fare. And with Simon Jones at the helm, the whole production is nothing less than enchanting. B.P. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2020]
