These traditional folktales are told animatedly by two entertaining, professional tongue-flappers from the Ozarks. The stories are amusing to listen to and fun to think about later. This rapid-fire overview of a vanishing art, backwoods storytelling, includes such imaginary creatures as the sharp-clawed Gowerow and Ozark wonders like the six-pound crappie. Human trials are a frequent theme, with lessons for everyday living buried deep in the humor. The traditional music by John and Jan Corbin is easy on the ears, coming infrequently between a few stories. One cautionary note: The packaging states this tape is for "ages 9 and up." But parents and teachers may wish to decide if they want their children listening to one story after another peppered with Ozarkian expletives. L.C. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB 93]
