L. Frank Baum, author of the Oz books, produced yet another children's classic with this amusing collection of fairy tales. Not just for children, narrator Samantha Worthen's bright performance will have many adults fondly remembering the experience of having a bedtime story read to them. Listeners will be entranced by stories about mannequins coming to life, magic bonbons, a polar bear without a fur coat, and many more. Worthen's flexible voice captures the personalities of the different characters, as well as many of the stories' subtly satirical and tongue-in-cheek tone.

The narrator's really ruined this for me. It's perhaps that I'm picky, but they sound like a bad acting class.
