A VERY BIASED But Totally Honest! REVIEW...

OK, so I'm not exactly impartial, since I wrote the stories and narrated a bunch of them, but I wanted to RAVE about the WONDERFULLY TALENTED CAST of actors who have made my stories live beyond my wildest dreams.

The performances in this audiobook story collection, whether the story is read by an individual or joined by an entire cast, are magical. Characters spring to life fully formed with their own voices and personalities. Tales are told in a manner to captivate and enchant every listener, from the youngest to the oldest.

Not to mention that the amazing sound effects and music, heard throughout the stories in different styles, create a delicious fancy inspiring treat for the ears.

Whether as bedtime listening or commuting entertainment, while raking the leaves or taking a relaxing bath, an audiobook can open up your imagination in ways TV can't. And unlike TV or reading, you can listen while you do other stuff and not miss a thing! If you like stories, if you like to listen, if you like inspired voice performances, you will love my Young Arthur collection of stories enacted by this merry band of troupers!

ARTHUR is performed by: EJ Keitel, Walter Milani, Teel James Glenn, Betty Hudson, Danielle Cornell (Manente), Rob Carroll, June Rachelson Ospa, Janine Waldron, Micheale Ryan Koons, Ryan Koons and me, Jon Koons, with a foreword by Ariane Smith.

Appealing Stories

This collection of stories is sure to please everyone in your household. The stories are varied and well-written. All have interesting musical backgrounds and/or sound effects. Many different performers, including me, contributed vocal or musical talent to make this terrific audiobook. This is the first time I've heard the whole audiobook, and it's terrific. A true labor of love. Give it a listen, you won't be disappointed!
