Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 1-6This unabridged audio recording of Natalie Babbit's Knee Knock Rise (FS&G, 1970) is a wonderful way to enjoy this fable about man's need for belief systems. A young boy ventures from a tiny village to discover the source of a mysterious cry at the top of a rocky mountain. Despite evidence that the sound is an explainable, natural occurrence, the townsfolk refuse to believe it is anything but the wailing and moaning monster, the Megramum. Suzanne Toren, who received the 1988 Narrator of the Year Award for the narration of 900 Talking Books for the Library of Congress, gives an outstanding performance as the narrator and the voices of each realistic and well-defined character. Her voice is pleasant and animated. The clear recording, with even volume, will stand alone or as a companion to the book. In the school setting, teachers and librarians can use it as an introduction to the author, with small or large groups. Reluctant readers will find this a helpful tool and it also would be a great addition to a family library.-Lisa J. Radmer, Opstad Elementary School, WA

Meet the Author

A gifted artist and writer, Natalie Babbitt’s novels are inspired by a brilliance and imagination that is completely original. She began her career in 1966 with the publication of a picture book, The Forty-Ninth Magician, a collaboration with her husband, Samuel Fisher Babbitt. Her first novel, The Search for Delicious, established her gift for writing magical tales with a more profound meaning embedded within them. Kneeknock Rise earned her a Newbery Honor Medal, but it is Tuck Everlasting which has insured Babbitt’s place in the history of children’s literature. This modern classic, which has also been made recently into a major motion picture starring Alexis Bledel, William Hurt, and Sissy Spacek, asks an enduring and powerful question: If we could live forever, would we want to?
Babbitt has written six more novels including The Eyes of the Amaryllis and Goody Hall—each one presenting her unique vision of an enchanted world. Her latest novel, Jack Plank Tells Tales, was published in Spring 2007.
Natalie Babbitt lives in Providence, Rhode Island, and is a grandmother of three. When asked what she wants readers to remember about her books, she replied, “the questions without answers.”

    Incredible book!

    This book was a great book with MANY twists and unexpected turns. The story starts off mysterious, with the whole town thinking that theres a monster on top of the mountain that comes down on some nights to kill and haunt. In the end, the story makes sense and all the parts play together...but you'll have to read the book to see if the monster really exists:)

    A great story from beginning to end

    "Knee-Knock Rise" is a great book for youth through the age of 12. It's a creative mystery that requires keen imagination. It also prompts the reader to think out his/her own solution at the end: What action would I have taken? I read this book to my two sons, ages 5 and 10, as my wife drove during a long car trip. Our agreement was that the boys would let me read a couple of chapters to them before they turned on a TV videotape. By the time we got to Page 16 they didn't want me to stop reading. They forgot all about the videotape. That is quite an accomplishment for an author.
