A classic fairytale

"There have been numerous takes on this story. The Polar Bear King, The Golden Compass(both movies), East (a book for young adults); they're all based on this Norwegian fairy tale of a nameless loving girl who went to live with the polar bear king to save her family. I can't say enough about this story. I grew up listening to rabbit ears books on tape. Every time I left home, stayed in hotels, or had trouble sleeping I would listen to this story and I could calmly doze off. There is a wonderful strings/piano background and extended score that your child will always remember, and Max Von Sydow's voice is deep, rumbling, and comforting to any young child, like your own grandfather telling you a story. If you have children, get this, King Midas (Yo-Yo Ma and Michael Caine!!!), Jack and the Beanstalk (members from Monty Python! don't worry it's completely appropriate :D), and all the other Rabbit Ears audio cds!"
