Editor reviews

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.

Summary

Benjie Perkins' parents make their living by buying old houses and fixing them up to sell, so Benjie is used to odd noises in the night. But this time, it's different. This time what he hears is the ghost of Elvira Thistledown, who is kept from moving on to glory by a truly strange curse. Can Benjie free her restless spirit?
