Description-
  • Rabbit Ears World Tales: Volume Five entertains and enlightens with these classics from all over the world—read by your favorite stars and featuring original music by some of today's greatest artists. Bremen Town Musicians — Follow the inspiring adventures of a dog, cat, rooster, and donkey who prove it's never too late to start over. Well along in years already, these four spunky animals decide to begin new lives as traveling musicians. Their comic escapades and dogged attempts to harmonize will amuse young and old alike. And you'll want to thank Brothers Grimm for offering a valuable message about following your dreams. The inspired musical score brings the ultimate musician's tale to life. Finn McCoul — Finn McCoul is the greatest champion in all of Ireland, but when he discovers that the brutish giant Cucullin is after him, even the great Finn gets nervous. But with some ingenious culinary magic on the part of his clever wife, Finn manages to get out of the scrape with his dignity intact. Koi and the Kola Nuts — In this humorous African folktale, Koi wants the villagers to honor him as befits the son of a chief. But unless he can accomplish three impossible tasks, he will end up in the cooking pot instead. His problems begin with a scrawny Kola tree, and they end when three unlikely new friends—a snake, an ant, and an alligator—save his life and help him find his rightful place in the world. This powerful adaptation captures the rich textures and folk imagery of African culture.
Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine Danny Aiello gives an engaging and delightful performance of "Pinocchio," set to music by the Les Miserables Brass Band. Pinocchio magically comes to life at the hands of toymaker Gepetto, and, thanks to Aiello and the musical accompaniment, mischief and hilarity ensue. Aiello and the Brass Band are adept at keeping the pace moving and succeed in painting a colorful aural picture of the tale. Even better is John Cleese's reading of "Tom Thumb." With an orchestral score provided by Elvis Costello, the adventure of the little person with enormous courage springs to life, full of suspense and perseverance. The two classic stories are produced with enough sound effects to keep little ears glued to the action. H.L.S. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine
