Editor reviews

A lively cast performs this classic Brothers Grimm tale where a poor fisherman catches a flounder who claims to be an enchanted prince. He frees the injured fish, but when he returns home to his filthy shack, his wife demands he return to the sea to ask the prince for a cottage. The couple receives the new abode, but the wife soon tires of the improved situation. As her greed escalates, the fisherman finds himself requesting grander homes and loftier titles. Can such ambition be sated?

Poor recording

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The recording sounded as though it was done in someone's living room, and the flounder and husband's voice had all the enthusiasm of someone reading a physics textbook.
