by | Read by Julie Hagerty

Children (Ages 8+) • 3 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1999

Imagine a person embodying the characteristics of both Mary Poppins and Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle coming to be your babysitter. With Aunt Sally on the scene, clams bite off fingers, green beans are eaten, trolls lurk, and family stories stretch late into the night. The narrator for this Horn Book Honor Book has the skills of a raconteur. Julie Hagerty relishes the histories of the Andersons's Canadian relatives as much as Aunt Sally does. She twangs for the great-uncles and grandparents and stretches out the moments of suspense. Her voice is childlike as Amanda, Pee Wee, and Melissa . Hagerty brings life to a tall tale of the highest order. A.R. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 00]
