Audiobook Review - Rabbit Ears Treasury (narrated by an all-star cast)

Current Theme Song (aka what's playing on my ipod right now): The Old Ways by Loreena McKennitt.

This series is truly a gem. I don't know how else to describe it. It is fun, creative, mesmerizing, enchanting, and beautiful. It is fairly unknown and for the life of me I cannot imagine why. The "Rabbit Ears Treasury" is a series of world tales and fairy tales, both familiar and unknown, telling everything from Anasazi to East of the Sun, West of the Moon, and read by narrators you would more than recognize. Anyone from Morgan Freeman to Meryl Streep, from Jodie Foster to Denzel Washington, Robin Williams, Cher, Emma Thompson, and Ben Kingsley. Just to name a few.

They are about a half an hour in length each, with is perfect for story time, or "quiet time" as it was known in my house when I was a small one. Also, something I did not expect but wholly enjoyed was the music intro and outro. Almost always it is a song by itself and creates a remarkable atmosphere and anticipation where you are anxious and excited for the story to arrive. Each story comes with an original score that is never overbearing and adds perfectly to the powerhouses of highly dedicated and experienced actors they've found to bring the words to life.

I love these also because these are world tales and cover the gammut of stories both familiar and less so, and offers a marvelous opportunity to your mind, or another's, to a new world, and some beautiful ones at that.

A simply marvelous and incredible collection. Really, this is a series you really do not want to miss.
