Laura's family's first home in Minnesota is made of sod, but Pa builds a clean newhouse made of sawed lumber beside Plum Creek. The money for materials will come from their first wheat crop. Then, just before the wheat is ready to harvest, a strange glittering cloud fills the sky, blocking out the sun. Soon millions of grasshoppers cover the field and everything on the farm. In a week's time, there is no wheat crop left at all. Unabridged. Paul Woodiel plays the fiddle. Read by Cherry Jones. 6 hours. Recommended for ages 8 and up. A 1938 Newbery Honor book.

Review 1 for Little House on the Prairie #4: On the Banks of Plum Creek - Audiobook on CD
Date:February 24, 2009
My children love the audio version of the Little House series. We have five audiobooks in the series. Cherry Jones does more than just read the story, she performs it. The varied use of her voice delivers a dramatic and often humorous interpretation of the text. Sadly, however, her choice of lifestyle does not match the wholesome tone of the Little House series. Ms. Jones is a practicing lesbian who has been active in espousing the gay agenda. Too bad.
