Description

Doch auf diesen Seiten wird ein lebendiger, vielfältiger Eindruck vermittelt, der es vermag, zu faszinieren. Old Badger awakens his little one with a special surprise in Little Badger's Just- About Birthday by Eve Bunting, illus. Because the illustrations were on point - gargoyles come to life at night and club out and cause mischief and are generally grumpy grumpsters - but the writing felt like bad poetry that tried to rhyme and gave up, so invested heavily in metaphors instead. The beautifully evocative text from Bunting, describing the antics of the gargoyles at night, is perfectly matched by the dark-toned but gorgeous pastel artwork of Wiesner in Night of the Gargoyles.

The gargoyles' impish, grotesque grins-expressions just this side of malevolent-and ``empty eyes unblinking'' are not easily forgotten.The 103 third parties who use cookies on this service do so for their purposes of displaying and measuring personalized ads, generating audience insights, and developing and improving products.

Eve Bunting has written more than 200 books for children, many of which can be found in libraries around the world. PW enjoyed the ``witty and whimsical verses'' that tell the tale of a desert-dwelling duck who receives on his birthday water paraphernalia--and an inflatable pool in which to try them out. The rotting carcass of a humpback whale is the unlikely focal point of this moralistic story set in the early 1900s. They are a little comical and they just want to clean off the bird poop of the day and relax, have some fun and socialize. It tells the story of how the gargoyles come alive at night but the story isn’t remotely engaging and I zoned out of the book after the first few pages.Bunting's (Smoky Night) eloquent yet spare narrative introduces nine-year-old Laura, who recounts her family's 1972 visit to the site of the former Manzanar War Relocation Camp in eastern California. Gedacht ist das Werk für Vorschulkinder - zum Vorlesen und zum Entdecken von ganz vielen neuen Eindrücken durch die wunderschönen Schwarzweiß-Zeichnungen. A contemporary Italian-American family living in New York City makes its annual pilgrimage to Liberty Island to celebrate the birthday of the Statue of Liberty in this poignant picture book.

It highlighted the pockmarked concrete that they are made of, it brought their empty, unblinking eyes and hard, stone bodies to life. Ultimately, this book has a little bit of everything: it’s funny, a little spooky and edgy while still having a touch of beauty with the descriptive words written by Eve Bunting.In this somewhat treacly memoir, a girl saves a caterpillar, ""a small black creature/ like a tiny worm,/ . Our children really enjoyed making clay gargoyles too – based on the work of The Gargoyle Guy (see Youtube). He creates three-dimensional models of objects he can't observe in real life, such as flying pigs and lizards standing upright, to add authenticity to his drawings. After her mother dies, 15-year-old Catherine is determined to join her father, a pirate captain, on the high seas. Das ist beim vorliegenden Band zwar leider auch nicht anders, doch sind es großformatige Zeichnungen, welche in eine geheimnisvolle Welt entführen.
