Two traditional and well loved fairy tales known to many generations of children. Presented in an entertaining and wonderfully appealing way with a full cast of characters performed by voice actors. Enjoy Beauty’s first introduction to the frightening Beast and his gentleness which engages her until she is finally so in love with him that magical things happen! And the unusual journey to East of the Sun and West of the Moon is an adventure with another surprise ending.
“I thoroughly enjoyed these stories. One was familiar from my childhood and the other new to me. Listening to the stories in the car while on a long trip was just the thing we needed. My kids, who are not little anymore, enjoyed listening to the stories with me so much that we listened to them again after we returned home. These fairy tales sparked discussion of how tone, accents, and inflection of voices give impressions and how imagination takes bits and pieces and fills in the blanks, so much sometimes that we might feel we “saw” the story when really we listened, and listened well. I thank Alcazar AudioWorks for the imaginary trip through story land!”
