Move over enormous turnips and gigantic carrots! Now, it's the mighty asparagus that outwits a regal king, an imperious queen, a multitude of advisors, the bravest of knights, a prissy princess, and even a rhinoceros. Just what creature will provide the critical weight to uproot this vegetable? Listen and ponder Radunsky's illustrations if you have the book in hand. Narrator Kevin R. Free is as curious and full of "amazing" remarks as each character. He sweeps into this farcical fantasy world and is full of exaggeration. His slow pacing leaves time to appreciate the asides and the notion that "even the smallest effort counts." A.R. (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 05]
