Children • 1.1 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1947, 1997

What starts as a simple bedtime story quickly escalates into a marathon of storytelling as 5-year-old Michael and his friend Stefano alternately listen to and inspire Michael's father in his role of creative storyteller. While Heald uses his natural vocal range for the part of Michael's father, he easily slips into the high-pitched, youthful voices of Michael and Stefano, catching their energy and enthusiasm, as well as their mischievous sides. The bedtime story features Heald's delightful characterization of the wolf, using a gruff New York City accent and demeanor in dramatic contrast to the soft, suave voice of Rainbow the hen. Capturing the humor and natural flow of the story, Heald's performance will surely delight youngsters in elementary school, as well as parents who listen with them.
