An eccentric old lady really hates pumpkins, so you can imagine her dismay when a veritable field grows in her yard. Finding them too heavy to give away, she cooks them into bread. Then she lures the townspeople in. The choice of a male narrator is puzzling because the entire story is from a woman's point of view. The narrator raises his voice to a squeaky pitch when she expresses dismay. His voice is more suited to the parts of the male townspeople who visit. There are clear page-turning signals, and the orange tape makes it easy for young children to match it to the book. A.G.H. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 98]
