What the Critics Say

"Proving once again that Aesop’s fables are timeless, Billy Gorilly gives 16 of the tales a modern twist and lively piano accompaniment. The stories are expressively and humorously told with simplified language, a touch of humor, and a contemporary setting, making the lessons even more accessible and relevant. Youngsters will want to listen to these over and over again." (School Library Journal)
"Highly recommended for entertainment value as well as the teaching of character education. Parents and teachers can use these stories to further discuss conflicts, bullying and the importance of doing the right thing." (Nashville Parenting Examiner)
"This isn’t a typical voice telling the stories - it has great character and the tasteful music, although very understated, ranges from jazz to blues to very imaginative piano. Each fable is only two to three minutes long which is great for short attention spans, and the moral is stated at the end using today’s contemporary language." (Kecia Burcham, nationally renowned children's audio reviewer)
