Ina Allen's clever audio adaptation of Grimm's well-known folktale about embracing uniqueness is a joy to listen to. John Pruessner is an engaging storyteller who identifies each of the characters--a spritely old man, a donkey, a dog, a cat, and a rooster--with quirky, easily recognizable voices. After each animal's introduction, he delivers a lilting refrain of encouragement to "listen to the music inside of you." Further enhancing the narration is Allen's captivating piano accompaniment, which provides an additional "voice" for each character through a unique melody. Reminiscent of Prokofiev's PETER AND THE WOLF, this is a delightful mosaic of music and storytelling, and a fun way to nurture an early appreciation for both.
