“Folktales are ageless. Rooted in antiquity, reborn with each new telling, they speak directly to that part in us that does not change as we move through our lives. We listen, time changes, and we become ageless too.”
- Tim Jennings
"Really great storytelling is an art unto itself. Those who have mastered it make it seem as artless, and unremarkable as breathing. Tim Jennings is a master storyteller. He spins yarns of enchantment as effortlessly as a spider, and all who hear him are transformed.”
