The Cabbage Patch Fib | [Paul Jennings]

The Cabbage Patch Fib

"Get the doctor," said Dad. "The poor thing is green." "Give it to me," said Mum and took the baby away from Chris. At once it screwed up its nose, closed its eyes and stopped breathing. It started turning purple again. A father at eight years old? It could only be a Paul Jennings story. And it is.

Audible Editor Reviews

"Where do babies come from?" asks Chris. "They come from the cabbage patch," says a flustered Dad. And sure enough, Chris finds a baby in the cabbage patch that very night, except it's green and turns purple whenever anyone but Chris touches it. At first Chris loves being a father, but not for long. This is a fun and sweet listen from beloved Australian children's author Paul Jennings, narrated with plenty of spirit by performer Kate Hosking. Adorable and funny sound effects round out the tale.

What the Critics Say

"Hosking brings great humor to the story while maintaining dignity and charm as Chris' harried parents and classmates encounter a fantasy that contains some believability, as well. Bolinda Audio deserves kudos for producing a charming story and an important lesson for listeners to hear at an early age." (AudioFile)
