The old white cabin in the wood is the picture of warmth and harmony as Duck, Squirrel, and Cat make music and soup together. Each has a musical talent, and each has a specific cooking task. Jolly music, complete with Cat's bagpipes, radiates from the animals’ home. But what if Duck wants to be the head cook? Kathleen McInerney's narration is clear, and her enunciation distinct. Elongated pauses frame each scene of the story. She voices Duck's discontent with a whine, Cat's despair over the missing friend with tears, and Squirrel's fear of searching in the wood with diminutive squeaks. The musical accompaniment complements the action. Pore over the lush illustrations while listening! A.R. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2009]
