Review:

This CD collection features six tales from around the world (West Africa, "Anansi & Stories"; Russia, "The Innkeeper's Clever Daughter"; England, "Master of All Masters" e.g.), as told by Zette Harbour. As with many folktales, there are messages implicit in the text. Gratitude, hard work, and cleverness are celebrated while selfishness and deception bring about characters' comeuppance. Stories range from 4-15 minutes in length, and are performed warmly and with expression by Harbour. This well-rounded collection of stories expands readers' experience with world literature and delivers wisdom from around the globe directly to listeners' ears.
