My siblings and I have listened to these stories as children. I have a more recent copy since the older one became worn out and we now give it to our own nieces and nephews and soon our own children to listen to. The spirited voice of Tammy Grimes captures the magnificent and vivid stories of Maurice Sendack wonderfully. You'll be entranced by them and your imagination will soar. It will be something that you'll hold forever in your heart.
