New readers will be both captured and supported by the story and pictures that tell of Itching Down, a village beset by four million biting wasps, and its townspeople, who work together on an ingenious solution: carrying the insects away in a giant jam sandwich. Verses by Janet Burroway are perfect. The reading by George Capaccio emphasizes drama and adds voices for the mayor and the baker. Then there's the music and sound effects--everything from the buzz of a town meeting to the buzz of the wasps, which signals page-turns for beginning readers.
