Gorgeous orchestral music contributes to the dramatization of these charming tales. In "The Emperor's New Clothes," narrator Erica Johns creates the ideal huffy voice for the emperor, shady-sounding voices for the swindlers, and a realistic child's voice when all is revealed. In "The Tinder Box," listeners can almost see the crafty witch as she cajoles the soldier to steal with her creepy voice. The Ugly Duckling quacks believably as Johns elegantly describes nature. The hunting dogs' splashes into the water are also appropriately frightening and dramatic. Listening is an excellent way to enjoy Andersen's humor and wise lessons.
