[NO TITLE] 24 Jun. 2002
By HALLOWEEN_TREE - Published on
Format: Hardcover
de Lint remains an author capable of producing wonders in the short form. His ability to create memorable characters with only a few deft strokes turns a sweet and simple tale into something that works better, in many ways, than a novel at evoking a mood and feeling. Only hinting at the larger world and broader concerns of the Newford novels and story sequences, SEVEN WILD SISTERS opens itself within, drawing us deeper into a contained physical space and setting that proves to hold all we could care to fill it with. A terrific book, hopefully with further tales to follow.

Seven Wild Sisters 12 Mar. 2004
By Rosario Larson - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Sara Jane was the fourth of seven red haired sisters. She meets an old lady, her name is Aunt Lilian. She lives a simple life on top of a mountain. They became good friends. Sara Jane helped her with chores, and learned about herbs and plants. Also, Aunt Lilian told her fairy tales stories about The Apple Tree Man, The Father of Cats, bee fairies and sangmen who lived in another world. I really enjoyed this book. It was full of fantasy, suspenseful and some of the characters were funny. It was hard to put the book down.

Beautiful childrens story 15 Jan. 2009
By Phillipe Bojorquez - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I really enjoyed this book. It had the perfect blend of charm, wit and common sense that i find lacking in alot of young adult reading materials. The tale can be described as provinchal, with basic morals albeit tacked onto a larger frame work of fantasy and lore. I appreciated the authors inclusion of ritual to show ones respect for nature. It seemed at times a parable about nature, and certainly after reading the book i find myself that much more enraptured by the natural world and all it contains. Some of the more prevelant themes in the books had to do with knowledge, doing the right thing, and history. Each strand interweaving; building a whole tappestry of feelings and thoughts, with the sole purpose to enrapture the audience.
I always try to look at the heart of any story and this one was about not looking at the surface of things, not being fooled by the glomer of the world nor its strict adherience to rigidity either. I think it is a story worth sharing with an audience as young as 7-10 years old. I reccomend this book

does not get any better than this... 16 Feb. 2014
By I. J. travis - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Charles De Lint is one of the most inspiring storytellers out there today, weaving folklore and fairy tales into the modern world with lyrical ease.

and the only possible way to improve on his stories? are to have Charles Vess illustrate them beautifully, and then bind them as generously as the best story books have always been.

This companion book to The Cats of Tanglewood Forest is a joy to hold, and a unique experience to read, as two masters of their craft collaborate to weave pen and paper and ink into an immersive tale of deep-woods magic and family ties.

He knew me when!!! 20 Feb. 2014
By Jeanette C. Cave - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I could have been one of the sisters when I was a, gangly and far more at home alone in a forest than in the company of other humans. I love how when reality meets fantasy, the characters reveal that sometimes things in the fantasy realm make much more sense than the 'human' experience.
