One of The Great Books!

by xxxx on Mar 13, 2014

The great William Steig?s book SYLVESTER AND THE MAGIC PEBBLE [1969] presents a lovely, sublimely imaginative story, with wonderful, funny illustrations, about being careful what you wish for. Steig didn?t start producing children?s books until he was in his sixties. It was worth the wait. Like Arthur Rackham, Beatrice Potter and a handful of others, Steig?s direct, colorful art work is very distinctive and always recognizable. As a writer, he is a master of vivid, economical prose (As Humpty Dumpty remarked "Every word does its duty"), and sharp, satisfying irony pleasing to readers of all ages. Until his death at 95 in the fall of 2003, Steig continued to produce at least one new book a year, along with drawings, covers and cartoons for The New Yorker, with which he had been associated for more than 60 years. Other great Steig titles include ROLAND THE MINSTREL PIG [1968], THE AMAZING BONE [1976], AMOS & BORIS [1971], DR. De SOTO [1982], ABEL?S ISLAND [1976], BRAVE IRENE [1986], DOMINIC [1972], and PETE?S A PIZZA [1998]. His last book, WHEN EVERYBODY WORE A HAT [2003], pungently evokes life in the Bronx in the teens. Put your Gibbon aside and spend an evening with these subtle, deceptively simple works. You?ll be happy that you did.

The most satisfying conclusion in literature

by HealthyMom on Jul 22, 2009

My class of first graders audibly sighed at the end of this book; this is a touching story of wish-fulfillment and family love, told with lovely prose and evocative vocabulary. Especially fun for young rock collectors!
