Part fantasy, part school story, COLD ENOUGH FOR SNOW also adds a solid dose of humor. This installment of the Pudding Bag School features the class of 4B. The students become stranded by a monumental blizzard that requires the people of London to be evacuated by helicopter. The cafeteria ladies, school food (tapioca and beans!), tunneling through huge snowbanks, magical cat, and sledding down the dome of St. Paul's Cathedral are just a small portion of this winter story. Andy Crane's reading features crisp articulation, quick pacing, excellent tongue-in-cheek tone, and good timbre of voice--all of which bring this fun story to life. The listener smiles at this snowy tale. L.D.H. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 04/ JAN 05]
