2009 Award
Nelson Mandela's Favorite African Folktales
( Hugh Jackman, Whoopi Goldberg, et al, Hachette Audio $16.99 Score: )

An amazing cast of talent donated their storytelling gifts to the making of this 3 disk set of stories from across the African continent. Hugh Jackman, Whoopi Goldberg,  Benjamin Bratt, Scarlett Johanson, Blair Underwood, Matt Damon, and Helen Mirren among many others tell these classic tales with music by Vusi Mahlasela and Johnny Clegg. The profits from this collection are to go to ANSA, a not-for-profit organization that provides services to AIDS orphans in South Africa. A print version of these stories is available under the same title and published by W.W. Norton. These authentic folktales are not for everyone since some are a little slow. However, these are rewarding tales that often carry a message of wisdom that goes beyond the story. They will be appreciated best by older listeners from 8 & up and their parents, too.
