He also edited a series of children's fable books that preserved and illustrated a host of tales which are still used extensively today.


Audible Editor Reviews

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.

My children are spellbound

Where does The Blue Fairy Book rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is one of the best audiobooks we've listened to. It goes for hours and hours and keeps my young children (6 and 8) spellbound for well over an hour at a time. They love it, and so do I, because they are learning wonderful vocabulary and quality story-telling while they enjoy the exciting stories.

Will listen to again and again

The performance is above mediocre, but that is probably because we have become accustomed to all star performances, such as Tim Curry, Elijah Wood, and the like. That said, my children pay no attention to that. They loved this book and will listen to it over and over. My two oldest are ages 6 and 8.
