From AudioFile:

Even with the familiarity of this beloved tale, the anticipation of the story's outcome brings much pleasure. When September rolls around, just which of the assorted farm animals will make a difference as the farmer and his wife toil to extract an enormous turnip from the garden patch? Ellen Verenieks provides just enough personality to differentiate the two main characters. More importantly, she maintains a leisurely pace, which is perfect to help young listeners focus on the action, appreciate the repetition and humor of the unfolding harvest event, and enjoy the tension of the story's climax. Sigh deeply, relax, and enjoy this fine serving of turnip stew. A.R. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
