Quotes & Awards

  • “Ought to be distributed, like an owner’s manual, to new parents leaving the hospital.” 

    Time

  • “Bennett calls on Tom Selleck, Dana Ivey, Michael York, Charlton Heston and other classic voices to produce a quality product.” 

    AudioFile

  • “Effective. The old stories from the Bible, from great authors, and from folklore do exert a charm and send a message that will stir families to discuss or contemplate the issues set forth. It truly is a treasury, with some tales so brief they can be read at the dinner table. Perfect bedtime, anytime family reading.”

About the Narrators

David McCallum is a Scottish-born actor of television, film, and stage. He studied at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art and made a dozen movies in the United Kingdom before his critically acclaimed work in Billy Budd brought him more attention. For his many years in television, he is best known for his role as Illya Kuryakin in the series The Man from U.N.C.L.E., which ran from 1964 to 1968, and his present role as Dr. Donald “Ducky” Mallard in the series NCIS. His stage credits include three Broadway plays, for which he earned a nomination for a Drama Desk Award for his role in The Philanthropist. His film work includes the 1963 release of The Great Escape and nominations for several awards. He has provided voice work for television, cinema, and video games.

As a member of the National Theatre, she gave a much lauded performance in Tales from the Vienna Woods and was nominated for a Laurence Olivier Award for David Hare’s Plenty. She moved to Manhattan in the early ‘80s, dropped the English accent, and won stardom on the Broadway boards, racking up four Tony Award nominations for best actress. On the screen, both big and small, she established herself as a top-notch and in-demand supporting player and character actress. Nelligan was Oscar-nominated as Best Supporting Actress for The Prince of Tides, and her performances in movies and television in her native Canada have brought her five Gemini Award nominations.
