Each of these tales is presented by narrator Bob McGrath along with a full musical score. PETER AND THE WOLF is the better of the two titles. The concept of animals being portrayed by various symphonic instruments is wonderfully presented and enhanced by the clarity of each instrument. Children will richly benefit by learning a valuable lesson of life and by hearing individual instruments named and demonstrated. THE FROG PRINCE also has a good musical accompaniment, but the narration is entirely too slow. However, since the story and music are good, perhaps young listeners will not be disappointed. Overall, the title is worthwhile because of its educational value and its unique approach to children's literature. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 01]
