Album Notes
"Novak, a gifted teller who regularly performs at festivals around the country, enhances his stories with a bag of tricks. His fluid voice can become a dozen different characters. He sometimes takes out a looped string and turns cat's cradle tangles into antlers, beards and other costumes for his protagonists." ––– Smithsonian Magazine

"In him, The Brothers Grimm and Carl Jung meet Monty Python." –––– Houston Storytelling Festival

"David Novak is the most eclectic storyteller on the scene today. Just when you think you've got him pegged, he surprises you with complete originality and insight. His retelling of Cinderella in iambic pentameter goes a long way towards 'reviving Ophelia'. His tale of Sterling, the salt shaker that falls in love with the sugar bowl, surpasses Anderson. Whatever the occasion, he always knows the right tale to tell. "To Tell," Novak says, "means To Discern. Choosing the right story at the right time for the right reason, is the real art of the storyteller." Judging from his choices, he is a true storytelling artist."
––––– Ft. Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel

“Storyteller David Novak is an on-stage wizard, spinning his tales with wild creativity, intelligence, and wit.”
––– Rapid River Magazine

"Madeline L'Engle once said, "Stories make us more alive, more courageous, more human, more loving." After spending the weekend in the audience and classroom of my friend and mentor, Master Storyteller, David Novak, I couldn't agree more. To all my friends who are educators, librarians, entertainers, or anyone who loves a good story, you owe it to yourselves to see this wonderful artist who truly has the gift of reverie."–– Pam Uruburu

"He tells his stories with great physical awareness, a real sense of suspense, humor, and integrity. His range, personality, warmth, truthfulness, imagination, ability to transform, taste, all combined, make him a unique artist."
––– Lincoln Center Institute
