Review:

Professional storyteller Tracy Sue Walker spins tall tales from many cultures with a well-practiced folksy touch, and a fine singing voice. Walker performs traditional songs and brings to lively, humorous life the many colorful characters that populate her stories. A chattering chipmunk passes a royal test to win the hand of a princess; an old woman gets the best of Death (with unfortunate consequences); a run-in with a rabbit turns out to be the reason that alligators have bumpy skin. Walker reveals, too, just how the fox got his white-tipped tail, why bats fly at night; and why shy Sister Moon and proud Brother Sun switched places in the beginning of the world.
