Audible Editor Reviews

Bobby Norfolk's energetic interpretations of 5 well-known stories seem to burst from the speakers. Norfolk's voice commands attention as he speaks, shouts, and vocalizes various sound effects. Norfolk's strength is in moments of wild humor, but he successfully conveys the emotion in stories that are more serious or, in "Tilly and the Eight Steps," mildly frightening. These strengths are brought to bear on stories that entertain and have a strong moral center, making both this collection ideal for young and old alike.

Bobby Norfolk Rocks!

Bobby Norfolk's storytelling keeps me and my children (4&6) entertained and laughing. His storytelling performances are totally unique and hilarious. This is one of our favorites. Our pick on this collection is "Tilley and the 6 Steps." We love to try to imitate his voice when he booms, "Tilley, I'm on the first step....!" All of his Anansi stories are incredible. See other collections for those.
