Seventy years ago the musical fable Peter and the Wolf unexpectedly took the world by storm. Written and composed by the Russian Serge Prokofiev, this droll story for narrator and orchestra has sold millions of recordings in countless versions, narrated by great performers from Sir John Gielgud to Sting. The only problem up until now has been that Peter and the Wolf – composed specifically for children, and featuring a narrator with orchestra - is practically the only piece of its kind.

Seventy years ago the musical fable “Peter and the Wolf” unexpectedly took the world by storm. Written and composed by the Russian Serge Prokofiev, this droll story for narrator and orchestra has sold millions of recordings in countless versions, narrated by great performers from Sir John Gielgud to Sting. The only problem up until now has been that “Peter and the Wolf” – composed specifically for children, and featuring a narrator with orchestra - is practically the only piece of its kind. The vast audience that loves “Peter” has not been able to find a similarly enchanting musical story. But now all that will change! The Shoe Bird has arrived! In The Shoe Bird multi-Grammy-award-winning performer and Guinness World Records™ holder Jim Dale brings to life a flock of unforgettable bird characters – Arturo the parrot, Gloria the goose, Minerva the owl, even the extinct Dodo! This is Eudora Welty’s fantastical story of how some feathered friends made a fateful switch from flying to wearing shoes, little knowing that they would soon become the prey of Freddy the Cat! Masterfully scored for full symphony orchestra and children’s choirs by Welty’s fellow Mississippian Samuel Jones, The Shoe Bird appeals immediately to children and adults, just like the classic Peter and the Wolf. The Shoe Bird is a new work that reinvigorates a great tradition of storytelling fun for the whole family. It can be heard again and again, always rewarding the listener with the wit and wisdom of Eudora Welty, the delightful animal characters impersonated by Jim Dale, and the rich musical background of full symphony orchestra and chorus. Jim Dale is very enthusiastic and ready to promote The Shoe Bird which he considers one of his favorite recording projects.

Welty's only "children's book", this was just enormous fun for me to read. Full of word play and puns, and bird characters that act exactly as they ought to given their personalities and the incredible situation they find themselves in. Arturo the Parrot is an essential employee of Mr. Friendly's Shoe Store, where Mrs. Thompson brings her children to outfit their feet for a new school year. Robbie Thompson is not thrilled with this project, and upon finally leaving the store makes the pronouncement that "Shoes are for the birds!" Well, Arturo's motto is "If you hear it, tell it", so naturally he repeats the phrase where it will do the most harm, in the hearing of the silly, bossy, self-absorbed Goose. What ensues is a store full of birds all trying on shoes with hilarious results, until ultimately everyone except the Goose decides that shoes are not for birds and Arturo decides his motto ought more properly be "If you hear it, think it over". I'm not sure at what age this might begin to appeal...there are an awful lot of words on the page, it is definitely not "easy reading", and many of the jokes would be lost on a child with less love of language and knowledge of birds than our wonderful Miss Eudora had. But I'm very glad I discovered it.

The story is WONDERFUL! My granddaughters, ages 3, 5, 5, and 9 are entranced by the orchestral presentation of each bird.
The children's choir is also very good.
Two problems with the CD. First, the sound mixing of the story teller and the orchestra and choir is not well balanced. ------I have to do a lot of manual volume control. Second, the choir's words are sometimes difficult to understand
On the whole, a delightful alternative to a movie in the car.

The nuances of Jim Dale's narration give each bird their own personality, bringing them most vividly to life. Filled with wit and wisdom it is a piece that begs to be listened to time and again, each listen providing something new. Dare say the next time you hear a bird singing in the wild both lessons learned, and the songs of the birds from The Shoe Bird: A Musical Fable will come to mind.

I'm a big fan of audio books for all ages. This one was a real disappointment though. First, the music levels were way too high for the actual story telling. In order to follow the story the volume had to be turned up then the musical interludes were loud and shrilly - very annoying.

The story was cute and entertaining, good moral.

The packaging on this item was way over the top as well. One disk, the box was 1.25 inches deep (I measured it) and the extra space (nearly all the space) stuffed with unnecessary Styrofoam.

But, one can't beat Jim Dale as a reader.

My three year old son loves this recording and tries to sing along too. Jim Dale's voices are magnificent and the music is just incredible. If you love Peter and the Wolf, you must add this recording to your collection!

I have read most of Eudora Welty's short stories and novels. When I discovered she had written a story for children, I had to read it. The book is one that many children would enjoy.
and so did I. The music may be derivative, but it's all new ti kids. and the story is a pleasure to hear.
