Description

Maar zie: hij kan het. Meer nog, ik hield erg van de familieband tussen de twee broers en de zus die hier beschreven wordt, die is zo mooi, ze komen echt voor elkaar op. Ik keek na het voorlezen van het boek ook naar de film tesamen met mijn kinderen, en die is helemaal anders op dat vlak: de kinderen zijn (allemaal) een stuk vervelender, in het bijzonder voor elkaar. Plezant kinderboek dat echte monsters niet uit de weg gaat: ik vond dit, ook al is het dus echt wel geschreven voor een jong publiek, echt goed meevallen. There were some interesting tidbits revealed about Arthur(the author of The Guide) and his history with the fairy world and we got to meet some royal denizens of the realm. It’s the first time hearing the name Mulgarath who might become the main villain at a later point. And as always, the art is fantastic. In the interest of full disclosure, Oot isn't the most critical of readers at this point in his life. He pretty much likes all books.)

Maar goed, dit boek. Ik had het gekozen als afwisseling met Harry Potter (expliciete vraag van mijn dochter), en dit zei me heel vaag iets, dus nam ik het maar mee uit de bib. Mij was het dus helemaal onbekend, ook de film nooit gezien, wat leidde tot de grappige situatie dat mijn kinderen mij niets mochten verklappen terwijl ik hen voorlas. Wat ik een plus- en minpunt vind, zijn de vele tekeningen in het boek. De tekeningen zijn erg mooi, maar je verbeeldingsvermogen wordt er al veel minder op. Uiteindelijk was ik redelijk lui om bepaalde wezens in mijn hoofd te bedenken, aangezien er toch genoeg tekeningen van ze zijn. Voor beginnende lezers is dit geweldig, maar ik vond de fantasie die je voor dit boek moet gebruiken erg laag, terwijl er juist veel fantasie bij te pas hoort te komen! Mooie tekeningen dus, alleen is het wel een afbreuk voor je leesplezier. First, and perhaps most importantly, my little boy likes them. He's about five an a half, which is younger than the target age for these books, but he's into them. Seth Rogen as Hogsqueal, an unintelligent bird-eating hobgoblin who seeks revenge against Mulgarath for killing his family.It's a fun little mystery book with cool fantasy elements and it does a good job setting up the characters and premise at an incredibly fast speed without feeling rushed. The ending shows a lot of promise for the future of the series. My only complaint is that it ended too soon, just when I was about to get into the meat and bones of the fantasy side of things. I enjoyed what little I was given though and I plan on reading the rest of the series. With their evocative gothic-style pencil drawings and color illustrations, rhyming riddles, supernatural lore and well-drawn characters, these books read like old-fashioned ripping yarns." I think the time has come these days that you might as well edit books as you read them. There are things I might as well do with technology so a book will be how I wanted it the next time I read it. Three siblings (twin boys and their older sister) move to a relative's old house with their mom and discover their great-great-uncle's book about goblins, dwarves, brownies, elves, etc. - and these creatures live in the land but are invisible to the naked human eye! They make mischief around the house and the area, and soon the siblings find themselves drawn into a battle in this world because of the book's existence and their possession of it. I can't say I have any regrets. If I'm going to read it so many times, I might as well. At least it's an interesting experiment instead of just saying what I didn't like in a review.

The art (in most library books the illustrations don't fit with the story, and look painfully like commissions; i.e Septimus Heap. These ones fit because the illustrator was a co-author. And they happen to be very good illustrations). Und ich mochte auch, dass Jared nicht wirklich ein "gutes" Kind ist? Er hat schwer mit seiner Wut zu kämpfen und wird als Problemkind abgeschrieben. Während des Buches lässt sich das natürlich mit der ganzen Feen-Sache wegerklären, aber wir lernen auch, dass er schon vorher mit aggressivem Verhalten aufgefallen ist, und ich bin einfach Fan von Hauptfiguren, die nicht goody-little-two-shoes sind. Vor allem, wenn es sich um Kinder handelt. This first book is about the Grace children: Mallory, Jared, and Simon. Their lives have changed quite drastically in a short amount of time and they find themselves in a new home. Things get interesting when they hear things in the walls and Jared discovers a field guide to faeries. What's more I *really* like the illustrations. I'd forgotten the books were illustrated, and that really makes it nicer when reading them to my boy. It adds a lot to the experience. I wish I had thought to look through these books for some pointers before I did Slow Regard of Silent things with Nate Taylor.

It might sound sad to do this, if books are supposed to be new experiences from the author's unique perspective. But there are some books that you might as well change, and this just seemed to be one of them. The first book, The Field Guide, was published in 2003 and then followed by The Seeing Stone (2003), Lucinda's Secret (2003), The Ironwood Tree (2004), and The Wrath of Mulgarath (2004).

The books wallow in their dusty Olde Worlde charm: Faeries! Dumbwaiters! Attics! But then, reading has an old-fashioned charm too." With a plot full of twists and turns and wonderful illustrations, this is a book that will hook any reader or listener to a bizarre world that exists within our world, a remarkable creation of the authors’ imagination.”Los personajes nos causan empatía y la historia nos lleva poco a poco a lo que parece ser un gran misterio. Las ilustraciones son de mis favoritas. Hay tantos detalles muy cuidados y me encanta la forma en la que acompañan a la narración. The plot is simple because this is focused toward children, but well detailed and clever. The writing is also really excellent and engaging. Although targeted at a younger audience, this can easily be enjoyed by adults. My sister and I read this first book together and plan to continue reading the series in the coming days/weeks. I hope that the remainder of the series holds the same charm as this first installment. Here are some subtle reasons this series is (at least a little better) than the average library book:
