Audible Editor Reviews

Norfolk's voice commands attention as he speaks, shouts, and vocalizes various sound effects - from the animals in "The Bremen Town Musicians" to the sounds of the blacksmith's shop in "Wicked John and the Devil." Norfolk's strength is in moments of wild humor, but he successfully conveys the emotion in stories that are more serious. These strengths are brought to bear the 5 well-known stories that entertain and have a strong moral center, making the collection ideal for young and old alike.
