Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Anastasia Tuckness | 2/17/2014

    " This book is a retelling of a folk tale in which a boy goes over the mountain (alone!) to borrow a black pot from his aunt. The tension, as one might guess, comes from speculating whether there are "bears on hemlock mountain!" It would be great as a short read-aloud in a family or even to just tell as a story. Young readers will have success with this book. Currently APL owns the version with the cover shown here; it was donated to the library in 2-17-1976, which makes it older than I am and very unusual for a book in the youth department! "

    " This book probably works great as an early-reader book for a kid who's just beginning to tackle chapter books. As a read-out-loud book, it was repetitive. But I have to say, it did build to a suspenseful climax. "

    " A nice story about family, and one boys trip to help his mother. "
