About the Author

Andrew Lang (1844–1912) was a Scottish poet, novelist, anthropologist, historian, literary critic, and noted collector of folklore and fairy tales.

Educated at the prestigious University of St. Andrews and Balliol College, Oxford, Lang became a published poet, editor, and journalist by the time he was thirty-one. He was fascinated by folklore, myths, local legends, and fairy tales throughout his entire life. Lang’s debut work, The Blue Fairy Book, was the first of twenty-five collections of stories for children.

Review

This is a gorgeous introduction for young listeners to fine literature, a vastly different time and culture, and enchanting music. Narrator Toby Stephens is dazzling as he presents three of the best-known tales: Aladdin and the Wonderful Lamp, Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves, and The Voyages of Sinbad the Sailor. He skillfully renders the stupendous description, cunning adversaries, and wide-ranging emotion as he spins Scheherazade's stories. At times, Stephens's accent has a modern sound that should appeal to a contemporary audience. Both male and female voices are distinct and appropriate to characters' ages and situations. Rimsky-Korsakov's stirring music adds vastly to the rich emotion generated by the exotic tales. Listeners of all ages will be enthralled. --AudioFile Magazine --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
