Audible Editor Reviews

Old Pipes and the Dryad is a wonderful short story - a fairy tale, really - about an old man's encounter with a dryad. The lovely and musical voice of Cindy Killavey narrates the tale, and actor Walter Zimmerman performs many of the character's voices, including the rickety Old Pipes. This story, by Frank Stockton, has stood the test of time, and listeners can count on an enchanted  journey into the realm of fairies for the duration of the audiobook.
