Under the October moon, New Englanders gather at church suppers, harvest festivals, and apple pressings. As the day's light wanes, they listen to stories and prepare themselves for the mysteries of winter. The four original stories on this highly praised recording were inspired by an October moon in New England. They are told by a seasoned storyteller and enhanced by sound effects and haunting intsrumental music.More
Levitt is both creator and performer in this collection of spooky New England tales. His style is distinctive, his voice clear and well-modulated, his characters fully voiced. Eerie sound effects and music are used extensively and appropriately. A feature of Levitt's style is a consistently slow pace and extensive repetition of both phrases and events. While at times these work to good effect, at other times they slow the story's pace and diminish excitement. The publisher's recommendation of an audience of nine and up is right on the mark as none of the stories are excessively gruesome or frightening.

"A welcome and eerie escape. Listeners will be entertained not only by this master storyteller but by the quality of the accompanying sound effects." (School Library Journal)
