"Marguerite Gavin reads the entire collection, and her pleasant, articulate voice is welcome story after story." (School Library Journal)
"Gavin's assured, velvety voice is a good match for this adaptation of an anthology first published in 1917....Gavin's consistent, even-keeled delivery make this a good choice for bedtime and quiet time, for listeners both young and older." (Publishers Weekly)
"What a treat to have a compendium of the greats of folk literature from the European tradition narrated by Marguerite Gavin, who evokes memories of one's own mother reading the stories by one's bedside. Her steady, soothing voice navigates the familiar...and treasured, but less well-known, tales." (AudioFile)

Put my kids to sleep!
I got this book to listen to with my kids in the car. They fell asleep every time I put it on. The stories are classics, but the narrator is fairly monotone, certainly not captivating.
