“What a treat to have a compendium of the greats of folk literature from the European tradition narrated by Marguerite Gavin, who evokes memories of one’s own mother reading the stories by one’s bedside….Gavin adds just the right amount of inflection and variation to bring voice to each character, be it the innocent child, the gruff and rumbly giant, or the calculating innkeeper.” (AudioFile)
“Gavin’s assured, velvety voice is a good match for this adaptation….[her] consistent, even-keeled delivery makes this a good choice for bedtime and quiet time, for listeners both young and older.” (Publishers Weekly)
