Gr 2 Up-Odds Bodkin, storyteller and musician, provides his own instrumental background music to this retelling of the Old Testament story about David and Goliath. He does a superb job of giving each character a different voice. The fast-paced story, culminating with David's battle with the giant Goliath, is a listening pleasure. Guitars, harps, drums, and other instruments are skillfully played in the background, adding appropriate mystery and drama to the story. Useful for religion and historical education, it provides an excellent introduction to the character of David. A terrific choice for religious and general listening collections.-Kirsten Martindale, formerly Menomonie Public Library, WI Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
