Description

"It was the year when Jonathan was eight that he went over Hemlock Mountain." Hemlock Mountain was really just a hill. And since he was big for his age, his mother sent him over the mountain by himself. With 20 people coming to their house for stew, Ma needed Jonathan to go over the mountain to borrow Aunt Emma's big iron pot. Jonathan was afraid of bears, but the grown-ups assured him that there were no bears on Hemlock Mountain. Besides, there was snow on the ground, and bears sleep when it's cold. Well . sometimes grown-ups are wrong! This charming tall tale is based on an authentic story from Pennsylvania's State Archivist. Embellished with Alice Dalgliesh's sparkling wit and John McDonough's narrative skill, this book is exceptional entertainment for young listeners.

Professional reviews

"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. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine"
