Nicely underscored throughout with Asian music
This brief tale begins with an atmosphere-setting minute of pleasant music. There are occasional musical interludes during pauses in the narration, and there is one complete song that is not part of the original story.
The narrator is clear and sensitive to meaning, and he provides convincing vocal impressions of the characters, even the small boy and his mother.
The story itself doesn't amount to much more than a slightly scary statement of "There's a place in this world for everybody."
Children of any age should have no trouble following the story. There is some brief fantasy violence that all takes places "offstage."
