STOPPING FOR A SPELL

by | Read by Judy Bennett

Children Ages 8+ • 2.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1989

Diana Jones offers three stories of magic and fantasy. In each a spell occurs and changes the story line in a most unusual way. To the delight of the children and the consternation of their parents, a chair becomes a person, four grandmothers (divorce in the family) turn into Supergranny, and an unwelcome guest is chased away by the furniture. Narrator Judy Bennett enjoys the adventures as much as the author. Bennett further expands upon the absurdity in each situation through her presentation. The speech patterns of Chair Person are completely annoying; the varying voices and personalities of each grandmother are vivid; and the pomposity of the guest justifies the furniture's revenge. Bennett's delight in these escapades carries the listener deeper into each tale. A.R. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/JAN 01]
