Smoothly performed and true to the historical time and place, this rendition of a modern-day classic for children will find an appreciative audience. Kit Tyler, a young girl from Barbados, must now live with her aunt and uncle in the Puritan Connecticut Colony of 1687. Gone are the freedoms of her island life, only to be replaced with strict rules and dreary days. When she befriends an old woman suspected of witchcraft, Kit is tainted by the same suspicions. Patient listeners must wait for this moderately paced story to unfold. They will be rewarded with suspense, mob hysteria, and much to ponder about the power of hatred.
