"When Natasha finds her grandmother's doll on the shelf, she yearns to play with it. The old woman's consent and departure on an errand set the stage for a magical, terrifying lesson for the child. Caruso delivers a sterling performance of Polacco's cautionary story. Her extraordinary abilities with voicing capture even the nasty doll while her clarity ensures that every innuendo of Natasha's experience can be appreciated. This will enchant all ages. S.B.S.
