What does Larky Mavis have in her bundle? A peanut or a baby? A calf-and-a-half or a dragon? That is the question on everyone's mind--from her father, the pastor, to the doctor and the schoolmaster. A dreamlike quality permeates Jenny Sterlin's narration as befits this fanciful tale. Sterlin's Larky is detached, yet unflappable, as she moves from one improbable event to the next. Supporting characters float in and out with changing vocalizations. Larky Mavis beckons the listener to repeated encounters. A.R. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB / MAR 03]
