"...this collection provides a nice introduction for children who might encounter one of these plays in a live production or in the classroom."
    — AudioFile
"he large and versatile cast gives energetic renderings of the text, while Cynthia Bishop and Coville skillfully narrate the stories... School and public libraries will reap satisfying rewards with this appealing recording."
    — School Library Journal
"...the spirit and essentials of the story and characters are well conveyed, and this production would be an excellent introduction to the plays for students or adults who are not familiar with them... Highly recommended for school and public libraries."
