Publisher's Summary

In these wonderful short stories, Washington Irving created two of the earliest, most endearing and enduring characters in all of American literature. Rip Van Winkle and Ichabod Crane (not to mention the Headless Horseman) will keep you smiling as they wrestle with the strange and fantastic forces, characters and events that baffle and terrify.

Two really good short stories that were interesting to listen to and experience. I have never heard Rip Van Winkle before.

Bob reads like a great-grandfather in a good way

Bob reads like a great-grandfather in a very good way! It was as this story should be read.

Literary Inspiration

Bob Neufeld perfectly creates the audio aspects of Washington Irving’s loquacious and sumptuous Legend of Sleepy Hollow. The pure pleasure of a rich New England autumn was reborn out of my childhood memories as I was immersed in the narrator’s well-measured oration... HA! He makes
me want to speak as well as he does.

Two stories in one audio book!!!

The narrators voice makes it sound like your grandfather is reading you a bedtime story, but that makes this version of the book that much better.
