A Lesson in Greed and Wishes.
8 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

THE FISHERMAN AND HIS WIFE is probably one of Rabbit Ears' most intense and charming story yet as it has drama and suspense throughout the story. Jodie Foster has done an excellent job at narrating this story as she narrates in a brooding manner, making the story suspenseful to hear and Van Dyke Parks' music is charming and elegant, which fits perfectly for this story. Last, but not least, Diana Bryan's illustrations are dark yet creative, providing the perfect mysterious mood to this story. THE FISHERMAN AND HIS WIFE is the perfect story about the consequences of greed and about being content with what you have.
