Album Notes
A story is a wonderful thing. As a child, I spent many hours wrapped up warmly
in the delectation of the written word. It's positively amazing how mere pages
bound together in a book can take on a life of their own and cause you to fall
headlong into the worlds they create. When that happens, you've snagged a great story,
and the stories on this CD are great stories. Written by tried and true authors such as
Beatrix Potter, Rudyard Kipling, Charles H. Bennett and Frank L. Baum, in their own
wonderful and captivating fashion, these classics weave imaginative tales that are chock
full of clever humor, high drama and important life lessons.

As a producer, I've attempted to retain the spirit in which these tales were originally written,
and at the same time forge a few elements of my own that will enhance, and hopefully not
hinder, the narrative for today's discerning ear. As a result, I believe both children and adults
will enjoy the listen. If I've succeeded in my effort, it's not because of any great talent on my
part, but the genius of the source material which inspired me.

If the listeners of this audio project, whether young or old, are stirred into cracking open more
written volumes because of what they hear, then I feel I've accomplished my task. Remember
the words of Dr. Seuss: "The more you read, the more things you will know. The more that you
learn, the more places you'll go."

Special thanks to Jody Robinson and Erica Therrell for kindly lending their voices to this project.
