my only criticism is in the volumes:
sometimes the volume of the reading voices are too low sometimes too high - you adjust it to one volume and then it's either too low or too high. the volume of some songs is too loud and again I found myself turning the volume down and then I had to put it up again to hear the continuation of the tale being told or the next story!
the third CD also contains all the songs featured in the previously read tales and I wish that it also contained the whole English translation of all the songs, some of the stories are really beautiful even though we cannot see a moral lesson in all of them.
I wish that even here in the UK people had or would learn from these tales in terms of courage, substance, kindness and foresight to go beyond the appearance - for example the story of the young man who eventually falls in love with the girl who had a spell cast on her and because of this she was dumb...
this is one of the best audio books I have ever read - highly recommended.
