"Children love to be read a fairy tale. And most adults love to read them to the kids. But when you have lost your voice, or inclination, there is Benjamin Kurzweil. His CD, Kurzweil Stories, features the Danish storyteller interspersing his own tales with those of his more famous compatriot, Hans Christian Anderson. Kurzweil comes off surprisingly well in the comparison but they may not appeal to very young children."

"I was surprised how suitable the stories were for grown-ups as well as for children. Not being a Danish speaker I had never read the original stories and therefore was never aware of this fact."

Yoke or Joke?


When life is a burden,

and a heavy yoke,


it can be eased for certain,

with a little joke.
