Children Ages 8+ • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Narrator Ron Butler brims with enthusiasm as he delivers this story about family, friendship, and the power of the imagination. Hans Dieter (HD) Schenk just wants to earn money to build a computer by cleaning out his uncle's basement. When he discovers an old pickling crock, he connects with the ghost of his great-great-grandmother. Butler delivers a thoroughly charming performance as HD, a young man bubbling over with scientific curiosity and a love of comic books. HD's Oma is a delight as well, her pitch-perfect German accent and sensible pronouncements setting up an ideal contrast to her ghostly status. As HD's family and friends join forces to make Oma's traditional sauerkraut a county fair success, listeners will delight in this joyful tale.
