history, nostalgia, brilliant illustrations !
on 20 January 2009
I am gradually buying every book by Selznick - this book is picture book size and of course has wonderful illustrations and a story that blends fact and fiction. My youngest son has an admirable reading age but is extremely reluctant to use this skill. Books should be inspiring and this one certainly is - one book should lead onto a desire for another - and so our family continues to enjoy his collection. It is a nice length to read in one sitting and is lovely read out aloud. Don't hesitate...buy it.(oh, and all his other books !)
