This traditional Indian story is told completely in rhyme, with page-turn signals. It emphasizes sharing and good values. Richard Poe speaks slowly in order to convey the sacred content. He reverently lulls listeners as the story of drought and hunger unfolds and then reveals how the sacrifice of a compassionate girl ends them. Sounding subdued, he weaves the ethereal tale gently, leaving listeners with a hushed tone. A.G.H.
