Cissy's Musical Story Box

The first edition of Cissy’s Musical Story Box is "Animal Tales", a collection of timeless short stories that appeal to the inner child in all of us. They are narrated by Cissy Croat and are set to the musical creations of Charlie Calv. The stories take place all over the world, telling captivating tales of exotic animals and how they’ve evolved into the beautiful and fascinating creatures they are today.

The idea for Cissy’s Musical Story Box, came about one evening during a seemingly normal conversation between the creators about spending time with their children. “We were talking about how we love the time we spend reading to our children. However, there are times when we can’t be the ones reading and have turned to narrated books for help. We both felt that the audio versions we had heard were often boring, set to music that is nearly unbearable and for lack of a better word, cheesy. So we thought, wouldn’t it be great if we could create something that had some cool music to listen too, and an animated voice telling the story”. After their first recording session, they knew they could create an audio version of Rudyard Kipling’s Just so Stories and Aesop’s Fables that would be exciting and pleasurable for both children and their parents.

The stories told in “Animal Tales” are meant for children of about 5 years old through adulthood. They tell unbelievable folk tales set to incredibly imaginative music that emphasizes the attributes of the stories’ characters. They are engaging, entertaining, and truly enjoyable to listen too. Charlie and Cissy along with some accompanying guitar from Jimmy Leahey have created a delightful collection of narrated, musical stories that leave the listener feeling an overwhelming sense of innocent curiosity and childlike happiness.
