  • "The best out there"

    Overall

    I'm a bit of a fan of fairy tales, and pride myself on having read or heard most, but this translation of Comtesse de Segur's Old French Fairy Tales gave me something entirely new in so many ways. Firstly, these are very rare and largely forgotten tales; you won't find them in most fairy tales books. Secondly, she writes these tales with a depth and emotional resonance often missing in the shorter, traditional method of fairy-tale telling; as a consequence they are more like novellas than short stories, and give the reader a true, full-immersion experience that I didn't want to end, and made me engage with the characters completely. Lastly they are read beautifully by Cathy Dobson, whose audiobooks I have purchased before and thoroughly enjoyed for her soothing voice and cool, clear accent. Just wonderful all round. My personal favourite was the last tale, "Ourson", but all deserve five stars!

    Sophie, Countess of Segur was a Russian-born French writer who lived from 1799 to 1874. This collection of stories draws on the rich heritage of French medieval literature, courtly love, magic charms and gallant deeds. In each story, the hero or heroine must undertake a quest or overcome a series of impossible challenges in order to reach their goal - often with the aid of magic. The stories are remarkably vibrant and well written, containing many elements of surprise and humour as well as chivalry and courtly romance.

Helen's greatest hits:
  • Cinderella and Other Stories: The Story Mouse, Volume 1

    "Lovely stories, beautifully read"

    Overall

    This is a lovely collection of stories and the readers deliver them beautifully too. There's no distracting sound effects or music and this is a good thing - my little one gets completely absorbed (she does a wonderful impression of the Fairy Godmother in Cinderella!). I know there are other albums from the same author and will be checking those out too. All in all, a lovely, well-read collection of favourites.

  • "Very good with lots of original sto..."

    2 of 2 helpful votes

    At first the narrator's voice sounds a little monotone. Stick with it though and you soon get used to this and really start to enjoy the great stories, of which there are so many. Best of all many of them are quite unusual, and not the sort of thing that turns up time and again in children's books. Recommended listening.

Of these worthy knights, there was never one so fearless, so chivalrous, so honorable, so...shiny as the dashing Sir Lancelot, who was quite good at defending the helpless and protecting the weak, just as long as he'd had his afternoon nap. Behold the very exciting and very funny adventures of Lancelot the Great, as only the acclaimed Arthurian author Gerald Morris can tell them.

There are what may be called "Celtic Stories," which were handed down for centuries by word of mouth by professional story-tellers, who went about from clachan to clachan in the "Highlands and Islands," earning a night's shelter by giving a night's entertainment, and which have now been collected and classified for us by Campbell of Isla and others.

    There has been a death in the forest. A young woman is beside herself with sorrow. A very tiny elf whose residence was in the leaves of a rose was the first to discover the motive and plan that resulted in the death. In the moment of discovery, the elf knew he needed to inform the maiden of the murder. The story well portrays the forest penalty. We leave contemplating that our own actions might sometimes result in unexpected consequences. A classic tale narrated by Glenn Hascall.

    A mean step-mother, a wicked witch, and poor starving children...all make up this tale taken from the Grimms fairy tales, and true to the Grimm style it is. However "Innocent Good" triumphs over "Horrible Bad," in this tale narrated by actress, Kathy Verduin.
