Children Ages 8+ • 3 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1981

Although Francis's British accent gives the story of twins Tom and Cass and the egg book they keep in the icehouse (to record their faults) some appeal, Francis can't make this muddled story shape up. Tom is resentful because Cass is growing away from him, and both siblings carry a grudge against a man who works for their parents killing moles, mice and other unwanted wildlife on their parents' farm. But the story never seems to get to the point--or even know what that point is. M.C. © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 99]
