I loved Jim Henson’s The Storyteller. Just an absolutely amazing show. So when I heard about this, I looked forward to it.

There’s alot of fables and fairy tales here. Some are great. Some are just okay. But they each are remarkably well done. This is just a beautiful looking and well crafted book. It’s obvious this was a labor of love for those involved.

The tv show had a special vibe and feel to it. I still remember scenes of the old man and the dog looking into the fire and shadowed shapes would be walking through the flames and then become the people of the story. That particular scene doesn’t happen, but each of the various stories creators have some interesting establishing transitions.

The first couple stories were okay and I was afraid for how this was going to be, but it got stronger as the stories went on. And at the end, looking back, the strength of the last couple stories help make the first even stronger.

Each story is special and unique in it’s own way. Some have messages and some are just fun. But each is worthy of being told.

This review is shorter then normal because I think this is a book that everyone really should experience for themselves. It’s well worth picking up and I look forward to future volumes and I still miss not being able to watch The Storyteller.
