Susi Halley

Delightful story beautifully told and sung. All ages will enjoy.
This musical play is delightful, meaningful, and humorous. The music is gorgeous and both artists' voices are lovely and expressive. The pace is just right - not too slow or too fast - for all age groups. Adults will enjoy this CD as much as children. A great story beautifully told. Highly recommended.
