CLASSICS OF CHILDHOOD, VOL. 1 Classic Stories and Tales Read by Celebrities

by | Read by Robby Benson, Betty White, Brian Austin Green, John Ritter, Sandy Duncan, Michael York

Children Ages 6+ • 4 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

"The Wild Swans" is an old classic. "The Elf Who Saved Christmas" may be a new one. Old and new are freely mixed in this intriguing collection read by celebrities, albeit names that most kids won't know (except for the newly hot Betty White). As name actors, the narrators all have appealing voices, and sometimes a connection to the material. Sandy Duncan, for instance, played Peter Pan on Broadway and here reads "Peter Pan," the collection’s longest story. British actor Michael York is the only actor to read twice, and it's a joy to hear him handle both "The Wild Swans" and "The Elves and the Shoemaker." The celeb/classics concept is continued on two more CLASSICS OF CHILDHOOD volumes. M.M.C. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2010]
