This would make a wonderful present to someone of virtually any age. And I'm waiting with baited breath for more English-language books containing Yerko pictures.
This is a heavy book and not particularly child friendly to hold and read independently. However, I did read this aloud to my child and she listened most attentively and was eager to find out what happened to our heroine Gerda in the next chapter as she journeys on to rescue her beloved friend Kay. There is no simplifying or dumbing down of the text in this retelling but I regard this as a good thing and respectful towards the original story.
The illustrations are absolutely indulgent, done with great care and attention to detail. The "I Spy" game at the end of the book gives readers another chance to go over and appreciate the intricacy and beauty of the illustrations.
Overall, this is a wonderful gem of a book that both children and adults would enjoy.

The pictures in this book are beautiful and I love that there is a "search" at the end of the book for various items in the pictures. Read morePublished on 21 Sept. 2012 by Vera
