The wonderful Bruce Coville outdoes himself in this fun and haunting tale. When Benjie Perkins hears a shuffling sound during the night in his old house, he gets up to investigate and sees biscuits being made by a ghostly hand. Coville and Full Cast Audio expertly present Benjie and Elvira Thistledown, an early American woman who's "cursed" to make biscuits into eternity. As Elvira tells her story in a Southern accent, she reveals that she was killed when an oven door blew off as she prepared her goodies. Benjie concludes by joyously saying he's not afraid of death because now he knows there will be luscious biscuits of glory on the other side.

I wont go in to the plots too much mainly if it 3 - 5 stars you may want to try it.
This is a cute children's ghost story about envy, jealousy, and what results from it.
"A sweet ghost story for young readers."
If you liked ghost stories as a child you'll probably enjoy this one. Nicely performed.
