Aurora Wetzel presents a grandmotherly reading of Andersen's famous tale. Nothing in the delivery hints at storytelling; no improvisation or peculiarities of style are evident. Rather, the listener has a sense that the text is being read verbatim (although certainly there is room for considerable interpretation when reading fairy tales). There is some vocal characterization, but throughout the voice is unmistakably the kind, friendly voice of the reader. Be reminded of the deep sadness of The Little Match Girl when purchasing for very young children. T.B. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JAN 94]
