Anton Lesser translates five classic children's stories to audio. Highlighting the production are energetic classical music and animal sound effects. Regrettably, the music is overused and detracts from Lesser's dramatic reading. It confuses the listener, giving the false impression of a break or the beginning of a new story. Lesser tries to read with emphasis but is dominated by the music. The result is tepid, at best. An illustrated booklet is included. A.G.H. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 01]
