A soothingly told Good vs Evil tale
8 August 2014 | by reddragonhero17See all my reviews

I grew up listening/watching Rabbit Ears productions and loving it as much as Reading Rainbow. The celebrities who tell these tales really know how to bring a story to life! This one is no exception and perhaps this one is my favorite. The way Sigourney Weaver tells it and with the variety of voices like one would a children's book is just phenomenal and her words stick with you for years. The soothing Japanese music perfectly accompanies this piece, you almost want to do some meditation while listening. Last and certainly not least, the drawings are professionally done. Who says you need it to be fully animated? Not so here, not that it matters. All in all, I love this above all other Rabbit Ears productions.
