Here are some of the finest fairytales from around the world - most of them old favorites: "Sleeping Beauty," "Rumpelstiltskin," "Cinderella," three from "The Arabian Nights," and many more. Andrew Lang was one of the most famous literary critics around 1900. He also edited a series of children's fable books that preserved and illustrated a host of tales which are still used extensively today.
Narrator Angele Masters' natural, unaffected delivery livens up Andrew Lang's collection of fairy tales taken from different cultures and countries around the world. Masters' timing is impeccable and she will elicit gasps from children as she describes encounters with monsters and heroic actions. Masters also shows off her versatility as she voices each character, moving from Aladdin's wide-eyed innocence in "Aladdin and the Wonderful Lamp" to Medusa's awful hiss in "The Terrible Head". Listeners will enjoy visiting and revisiting these tales filled with valiant heroes and heroines overcoming horrible beasts and villains and finding love.

Too many Christian references
Any Christian who wants to hear how the christians 'save the day'
I was after some original fairy stories and got Christian messages (they're not veiled, they are referred to).
This be honest, if I had to listen to over 14 hours of this narrator, I may have to put myself out of my misery first...
It was free...?
You pay for what you get.
