This is a rare album featuring actress Audrey Hepburn reading classic children's stories. Hepburn has the perfect voice for these tales. Her tone is soothing and her pace measured, but not slow. The background music used is Ravel's Mother Goose Suite and it is perfect. Relaxing and perfect for bedtime listening for all ages. Nothing too scary but slightly different than the usual retellings. And Audrey Hepburn's voice is so soothing. The CD includes fresh adaptations of Sleeping Beauty, Tom Thumb, Beauty and the Beast, and Laidronette: Empress of the Pagodes.
