The Rabbit Ears Treasury of Animal Stories entertains and enlightens with these classic animal stories brought to life–read by your favorite stars and featuring original music by some of today’s greatest artists.
How the Rhinoceros Got His Skin & How the Camel Got His Hump
Read by Jack Nicholson · Original Music by Bobby McFerrin
These familiar favorites from Rudyard Kipling feature the tale of a Parsee man who seeks revenge on a nasty rhino followed by the story of a lazy camel who learns the hard way that pride and arrogance are never a good combination.
How the Leopard Got His Spots
Read by Danny Glover · Original Music by Ladysmith Black Mambazo
Hunting on the African plain was easy for the leopard since his light coat blended with the yellow hues of the landscape. But once all the animals moved to the striped and splotchy forest, things got much harder–so for his own survival he had to acquire spots. This tale is rich with subtle humor and enchanced by the gegntle sounds of South African a cappella harmonies.
The Monkey People
Read by Raul Julia · Original Music by Lee Ritenour
Revisit this Colombian fable of a village in the Amazon jungle where the lazy inhabitants do nothing but lie in their hammocks. Then a mysterious man arrives one day and creates monkeys who do everything for the villagers. When the monkeys take on every human activity–including complaining–the humans have to deal with the serious and silly consequences of their inaction.

You want to know the truth about how the camel got his hump? "You can't handle the truth!" That's what listeners will think when they listen to Jack Nicholson, one of the narrators of these tales. This sweet collection of four famous Rudyard Kipling stories is brought to life by Nicholson, Danny Glover, and Raul Julia. The deliveries are enhanced by musical accompaniment by Bobby McFerrin, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, and Lee Ritenour. Nicholson's delivery is surprisingly soft. Glover does his finest "best buddy" voice, and Julia sounds like everyone's favorite uncle. McFerrin might overdo his human beatbox role. Parents or teachers must explain some exotic characters in the works, like the djinn and the African Parsee Man. M.S. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
