For younger audiences, it's perfectly fine.

When you take into account that these stories were written for young children, they're perfectly fine, and the narrators do a good job. When you're my age though, fantasy stories where things happen "just because" are a little harder to swallow. Still, the stories aren't bad by any means. Surprisingly, one story unfolds as if it were written by a child version of Junji Ito; except with, you know, less horrific imagery and more happy endings. Overall, a good collection of stories; just make sure you keep in mind who they were written for.

A hit with my kids (and me)

This was my favorite book. You can listen to this book if you want, too. - CMH, age 6

I highly recommend this book, because it is very good, and there are dragons in ALL the stories. - CGH, age 8

Great narrations & stories

My children are 9, 7, & 5, and they all loved this collection of stories! Magic, silliness, bravery...they loved all the stories and didn’t want to stop!
