Twenty four classic fairy tales compiled in 1905 by Hamilton Wright Mabie, this enchanting book isn't your Disney classic. Little Red Riding Hood does get eaten by the Big Bad Wolf, but in most cases the princes and princesses go on to live long and happy lives and the wicked step mothers get their just dues.

Good stories. Bad audio (narrator and recording).
my kids hates the voice of the narrator..he shows no emotions..he reads like a professor..
"Sounded like a computer was reading it!"
Narrator was awful. Turned it off after five minutes - I was bored by it - no way my 2 1/2 year old would listen to it. So disappointed. Want to return it!
"Good Stories, Bad Audio"
I know that most voice actors don't do fairy tails because it takes a lot of different voices. Like when you were little and Mom or Dad read you a bedtime story or when you read a book to your little one. I was just expecting a story to keep my little one amused on a long trip. Audible.com has just spoild me with great voices telling a storys that are vivid, not reading Tech manuals.
"Narrator is Awful!!"
The stories are great but the narrator is so unpleasant to listen to. skip this.
The narrator was painful to listen to. Sounded robotic, without much enthusiasm. Didn't get past the first story. Waste of a credit.
"The Introduction was very boring,"
I needed a story to put my great grandson to fall asleep, not cry to hear a story~
If you cut out the introduction
if there is not another 15 mins of stuff I already know
one eye two eyes and three eyes~
I would like to return this book and I only gave it one star cause I had to
"Don't Do It!!"
This was so disappointing. My daughter commutes with me in the morning and we like to listen to audiobooks together. I thought for sure she would love listening to these fairy tales. The problem? It's written in early 1900s English and is just so dry. I couldn't even make it through the first couple minutes of each story.
"Fairy Tales told by a computer"
This book sounds like it's being read by a computer. It's difficult to understand has does not have the cadence of a human voice. The writing isn't the problem; the reading is.
Not if it has the sound quality of this recording, no.
"Did not enjoy Narrator"
My children found the narrator to be difficult to understand. Perhaps it was the sound quality or his poor vocal variety. Whatever, personally, the way it was narrated also failed to capture my attention
