Wry, Dry Humor
Love the retelling of the myths and legends, and all the dry asides to those stories! You make all those boring, sometimes incomprehensible, legends enjoyable.
Absolutely fantastic retellings of stories from around the world. SO funny, but also really thoughtful — and educational! Highly recommended.
