Treasury of Holiday Stories Volume One

CD Price: $11.95
Review:
Two holiday stories, "Squanto and the First Thanksgiving" (read by Graham Greene) and "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" (read by Glenn Close), comprise this audio book. The two dispatchers for each story (the human voice and the orchestral musical instruments) mesh seamlessly to deliver a masterpiece. The story of Squanto offers further insight into Native American history that led to the first celebrated Thanksgiving meal, and the plight of schoolmaster Ichabod Crane provides a chilling story for older listeners - especially around the Halloween season. These two literary classics take on new life with this voice-music ensemble, and listeners will be left breathless after this story concert. The words on the page will never be the same again.
