William Dufris's homey voice invites listeners to settle in for a favorite family story. As Jonathan's mother plans for a family christening celebration, she realizes that only Aunt Emma's pot is large enough to hold stew for 20 relatives and that only Jonathan can be spared from the farm work to fetch the cauldron. Dufris coordinates his pacing and mood to Jonathan's trek over the mountain--speedy and jaunty as Jonathan sets off reciting his mantra "there are no bears on Hemlock Mountain," poky as Jonathan stops to feed forest animals, and elongated and exaggerated as darkness falls. How alone IS Jonathan as he hides under the pot to wait for help? A.R. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
