the greatest story tape ever! :-)

the narrator had a lot of expression and experience.
I like the story's because they are exiting and imaginative and I always want to know what will happen next. I am a big fan of Greek myths and atticus is a great example to kids like me. atticus is a great way to get Greek myths to kids.
I enjoy the wide variety of story's and impressionist detail that goes into the story's. clearly a lot of effort goes into writing these marvelous adventures.
I think it's a great idea to create a story tape about a story about a story teller who tells the story's on his journey to a great story telling festival.
its wonderful that they have the imagination to expand their minds to writing about how a storyteller can pay people with story's
this story tape is the perfect entertainment for anybody interested in Greek myths not just kids.

The narrator was fine, it met my expectations and there is no way you could improve except by this being a movie
