Loved the stories

So good to listen to the older stories with a little revision. Natalie Portman has a lovely voice. Would love to hear it spoken slower for the young ones, but it was refreshing to hear. Thank you for the stories.

A beautiful thing

This audiobook was an absolute delight. Natalie's narration was excellent, the music was great, and the stories were as familiar and instructive as ever. My son and I truly enjoyed them. I do not think it was an accident that the woman who is about to embody a role only played by men (Thor) is adding this wonderful book to the world. Natalie, you are WORTHY!! I truly hope there are more volumes to come. Aesop has a LOT of fables. I'm just saying...
