Narrator Clare Corbett elegantly delivers each fairy tale in this collection featuring The Snow Queen, Andersens’s most beloved tale. Each is punctuated by enchanting classical music. When young Gerda’s friend, Kai, is spirited away by the Snow Queen, she travels far and wide to rescue him. Corbett flawlessly handles each child as well as the many adults, birds, and animals Gerda meets. In The Old House, Corbett is particularly moving as a lonely old man, a kind child, and an emotional pewter soldier. The Leap Frog offers a lively flea, grasshopper, and princess, but most impressive is the stately voice of the king. These sublime stories demonstrate why audio is an ideal vehicle for a young audience to enjoy literature.
