Grimm's Fairy Tales: Wolf and the Seven Little Kids/Pack of Ragamuffins/Brother and Sister/Three Snake-Leaves/Boots of Buffalo-Leather/Drummer and Others by Jacob Grimm
My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars
What an enjoyable quick audiobook! A nice mix of short fairy tales from the Grimms' collection. I haven't read any of these particular stories, although I am familiar with plot devices and archetypes from more than a few of them. The narrator was great. She brought these stories to life. There is also classical music to accompany parts of the stories. I could see this audiobook being very good for kids to expose them to fairy tales. They would enjoy the stories and the narrator's different voices. I would say these are pretty kid-friendly stories, especially for the Grimms, which can be dark. Overall, each story has a good lesson about morals and ethics, from hard work, to keeping promises, and not giving up when things get rough.
Listening brought back the joy of reading fairy tales, that I have not ever gotten over, even into my 4th decade. I'd recommend it!
Overall rating: 4.5/5.0 stars.
