"MacDonald's voice is rich and expressive,
yet kind and gentle. Scholtz's
autoharp and dulcimer play with MacDonald's
words and help bring them
to life.... The music and rhythms are both playful and compelling.
stories invite children to act them out, sing with them, and play
School Library Journal, January 2000.
"While MacDonald sprightly tells the
stories and invites audience participation,
Scholtz strums refrains on an autoharp or mountain dulcimer. The
accents are integral to the action and mood of the narrative....
story collection for public and school libraries."
