When a housing development is built on the site of the formal house and gardens of Charlstock Estate, the new residents have the most unusual complaints. That the ghost of the former gardener of Charlstock, Samuel Stokes, is the cause of all the problems is clear to Grandpa, his grandson Tim, and friend Jane. The solution is the result of considerable thinking and eating and a dose of British humor. Carole Boyd's clear, multi-voiced reading draws the listener into the story with appropriate accents and consistent distinctions of voice. The reading makes accessible a sprightly tale whose paper version might not have a wide circulation because of its British slant. Ages 7-12. P.S.B. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPT 92]
