REVIEW: "Pedro Pablo Sacristan is back with yet another collection of Spanish stories for children, translated into English. And just in time for the holidays, this collection includes 12 whimsical stories with a Christmas theme.
This is my third Sacristan anthology and I have to say that I have enjoyed them all very much. Sacristan’s stories are written in a simple style that children will love. And parents will love the important life lessons their children will gain from these tales.... Handling the narration duties for Sacristan’s stories once again is the husband and wife team of Joe Bevilacqua and Lorie Kellogg. You’ll enjoy Joe and Lorie as they create literally dozens of silly and engaging voices that bring the stories to life. Your kids will feel right at home with the cartoon-style characterizations.
Pedro's Christmas Fables is just the thing to occupy your young ones on a rainy (or snowy) afternoon. Better yet, sit down and listen along with them. You won’t regret spending some time with them, and you won’t regret these stories either. It’s fun for the whole family." (Steven Brandt, audiobook-heaven.com)
