This is a story from the Grimm's Fairy Tales collection.
Here are some of the most enchanting fairy stories of all time. The Brothers Grimm conjure up a world of fantasy, hope and good fortune where the princess meets and marries the right prince (even if he once was a frog), and where the cruel witch, the arrogant wife and the greedy wolf get their comeuppance. It is a magical world which we must all inhabit at one time in our lives and which are as important in this computer age as ever before.
Taken from Grimm’s Fairy Tales, this enduring European story recounts the adventures of a destitute soldier who makes a desperate deal with the devil, agreeing to let himself devolve into a kind of monster over the course of seven years, at the end of which, if he survives, he’ll be richly rewarded...perhaps even, if he’s lucky, with the ultimate gift: love.
Skilled voice actor Laura Paton’s performance is enlivened by her sly delivery, her light, wavering voice which always sounds like she’s telling a secret. Paton has a knack for pacing and narrates this engrossing tale so bewitchingly that the minutes, as you listen, seem genuinely to fly by!
