". . . Local musician and author Ed Kavanagh turns his talents to children's music with the release of Alison Gross and Other Wickedly Wonderful Songs. Kavanagh, author of the Amanda Greenleaf books, accompanies himself on guitar and sings in a pleasant tenor voice. Geoff Panting's synthesizer adds creative and comic touches, and sound effects of a thunderstorm, a waterfall and the howling wind are used to good effect in three pieces.

Kavanagh's work is quietly humorous. I found this a welcome relief from the frenetic energy of so much children's music. The title song Alison Gross is just scary enough and Macaroni and Cheese is a great sing-a-long. Caught in the Rain is a guitar instrumental reminiscent of early Bruce Cockburn. This was especially gratifying to hear, since children love instrumental music but it is seldom offered to them. Alison Gross is worth owning . . . "
