This very funny audiobook about a potentially disastrous Halloween celebration proves that good reading is all. Yes, lots of different voices and accents are good, but, as the inimitable stage actress Elaine Stritch demonstrates, pacing, clarity, and an understanding of the material matter most. Stritch, who has narrated all of Barbara Robinson's clever books about the world from a kid's point of view, sounds like the professional she is. She doesn't bother with different voices, but we always know who is speaking. She reads with enthusiasm and enunciation, humor and precision. She likes this book a lot, and so do we.
