Maurice Baring (1874-1945) was an English short story writer, children´s writer, travel writer and war correspondent during the First World War. The Minstrel is a classic fairy tale about a childless couple who are granted a wish by a fairy. They wish for a daughter. The fairy gives them a heart-shaped copper coin to hang over their hearth, telling them that they must never give it away, for if they do, they will be giving away their daughter. One day, years later, when the beautiful child is home alone, a minstrel comes by and sings a lovely, captivating song. The girl gives the minstrel the heart-shaped copper coin from above the hearth...and her fate is sealed.... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Cathy Dobson.

Tales of a Minstrel follows the adventures of a minstrel named Finbar as he travels from village to village telling his stories. His own experiences, however, tend to outshine even the most exciting story he tells. The first chapter begins with Finbar struggling to hold onto his life while fighting back monsters and memories and feverish dreams. The chapters that follow describe magic and life and love, taking him from one world to another, battling magicians and enchanted animals, dragons and bears and evil wizards, across time and great distance. Throughout his travels he encounters a wide variety of intriguing characters and fantastic settings including a family of magicians (some ignorant of their powers), a mother and daughter who become animals, and an epic battle with evil featuring Ofara the Witch, an intriguing character who calls upon Finbar to help defend the world and save magic from destruction. Tala Bar tells this tale in nine vignettes, discrete stories that paint a vivid and compelling work. Tala Bar´s storytelling may even rival that of Finbar himself. 1. Language: English.

A touching tribute to the life and work of George Harrison. Much more than the inspirational heart of the Beatles, he was also the godfather of world music, an early advocate of yoga, a dedicated environmentalist, fountainhead of many charitable causes, and a brilliant composer and lyricist. Giuliano spent 30 years researching the life of this man, even living amongst him in pastoral Henley during George’s ´´quiet years” of tending his Victorian gardens and writing music that remains mostly unheard to this day. 1.

Some folk stories endure generation after generation because - although they are not literal - they resound in truths on a human scale. Folktales remind us of wisdom so elemental it is often lost in the rush of everyday life, so that ´´sometimes common sense makes no sense at all.´´ The six wonder tales on this audiobook are gems of the genre. They have a ´´long ago and far away´´ quality. The listener is invited to suspend the logic of ordinary reality and leap into an imaginative world where impossible events can occur.A two-time Parents´ Choice Gold Award winner, Heather Forest is known nationally for her minstrel-style storytelling which interweaves prose, poetry, and original vocal and instrumental music. The stories she performs in this audio collection are selected from her book Wonder Tales from Around the World. For Ages 8 to Adult 1. Language: English. Narrator: Heather Forest.
