About the Author:

Aleksei Tolstoy (1883-1945) was born and lived in Russia. During his four-decade literary career, he witnessed milestone historic events, both in his home country of Russia and abroad. He was a master storyteller, and wrote several children's tales as well as poems, plays and stories for adults. Niamh Sharkey, an award-winning Irish illustrator, graduated from the College of Marketing and Design, Ireland, in 1994 with First Class Honours. She works in oils on a gessoed textured background to create the richness in colour that has already established her as a world class illustrator. Niamh has illustrated a number of best-selling titles at Barefoot Books: Tales from Old Ireland + CD (1-905236-03-4), The Gigantic Turnip + CD (1-902283-29-5) and Tales of Wisdom and Wonder (1-84148-191-2).

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
