If you can manage to get a hold of an edition that includes the CD done by Hamilton and James Earl Jones please do so The two of them do a fantastic jobI really enjoyed this collection but I have never used formats to listen to a book as I did with this collection I read the titular story out of the picture bookThen I listened to the Audio CD included in this book which only has about half the tales and none of the notes but it s fantastic Then I flipped through the hardback to look at the pictures and notes for the tales I d listened toThen I listened to most of the rest of the stories in a full collection narrated by Andrew Barnes This one does include the end notes and Barnes is a decent narrator but he doesn t hold a candle to James Earl Jones Then I read the last couple of tales from the hardback and looked at all of the illustrationsSo 4 different formats for one book I think that s a record for me at least
