CD Review: Cloudspinner and The Hungry Serpent.
The latest CD by Beatrice Bowles is one that will take children on a journey of words and music, allowing their imaginations to soar. "Cloudspinner and the Hungry Serpent," a collaborative project between Bowles and musician Sara MacLean, brings the listener into a place where they can "wander through castles in the clouds."

There are many ways to tell stories. We think that listeners will find that this collection is the "sound" that embodies what a storyteller or storytelling event for children should be. This CD is a slightly jazz-and-rhythm-infused yet calming journey with words spoken as if the colors of the story pour forth from the mouth of the teller and the fingers of the musician. Bowles is not talking down to the young listener but inviting them to keep up with her images. Yet, in the midst of these children’s stories, there’s often a wild (onion) wink from the teller to the adults who may also be listening along with children.
If you like stories that speak to the minds and dreams of the young child, this is a good product to add to your collection.
