Hotel Under the Sand Nine-year-old Emma loses everything she has in a fearsome storm and finds herself alone in the wilderness of the Dunes. Finding a friend in Winston, Emma learns that it has been more than 100 years since the hotel with an unsavoury reputation vanished; but, unbeknownst to either of them, the long slumbering resort has just begun to stir.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I wish I could have read this book when I was a kid! 5 novembre 2009
Par tangerine - Publié sur
The Hotel Under the Sand is simply the most charming children's book (ages 8-11) that I have read in recent memory. Emma, a brave little girl, is lost at sea and washes up on a desert island. There she discovers a magical hotel where time is stretched out so that you can vacation as long as you wish (I seriously need that). She also discovers some stalwart friends (like a ghost, a chef, and a pirate) and uncovers the mysteries of the hotel in a wonderfully creative treasure hunt. There are also excellent illustrations that skillfully capture the flavor of the story.

I could say more, but I wouldn't want to spoil the book for you. The Hotel Under the Sand is suitable for children, but also for older readers who just want an old-fashioned adventure (not like, say, Twilight) told from the perspective of a spunky little heroine who is based on a real little girl named Emma. It's truly a breath of fresh air.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Steam Punk Fairy Tale 23 septembre 2009
Par Wayne Fisher - Publié sur
I have read most of the stories Kage Baker has published and I found "The Hotel Under the Sand" to be a delightful blend of fantasy and science fiction for the younger reader. I too recognize certain "stock" characters from Ms. Baker's stories. I find the characters charming in this context, Ms. Baker has her own mythological archetypes to draw from and we see different renditions of them in her shorter stories.

I call this a Steam Punk Fairy Tale, for that is exactly what it is. A delightful story to read to my daughter, or have her read to me, at bedtime. Adventures abound, magic happens, a strong and intelligent young lady overcomes all obstacles with the help of friends.

Excellent seed for fertile minds to dream over!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Wonderful story for younger readers 25 mai 2011
Par Sophia - Publié sur
"The Hotel Under the Sand" opens in a very scary and sad manner, when its young heroine, Emma, encounters a terrible storm and is swept away at sea, far away from everyone and everything she knows and loves. Being the plucky and resourceful young lady she is, Emma weathers the storm and goes in search of food and water. While walking along the seashore, she meets the ghost....

This is a wonderful, rollicking wish-fulfillment adventure story. It has everything - magic, ghosts, pirates, delicious food, sumptuous hotels, evil guardians, strange, unusual side characters, horrible boarding schools and bratty (if brave) little boys. Baker sneaks some of her typical classical and literary tropes into the story, and also manages to discuss huge topics, such as friendship, grief and loss, without being prosy and moralistic. About the only thing that might be difficult for young children is the beginning, but it is dealt with in a sensitive way and is totally not gratuitous.

I've already purchased a copy for my small niece, just in case it goes out of print. I'm just sad that the untimely loss of the wonderful Ms. Baker means she will not be creating any more of these small masterpieces. Highly recommended.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 My review 10 octobre 2009
Par Kelly A. Rettinhouse - Publié sur
We ordered this book before we went on vacation, so I would have something to read on the plane. My kids got their hands on the book first, and loved it! It was a quick read for them, kept them entertained with the fast paced action and adventure of Emma and her friends. I was finally able to read it over the past 2 days, and did not want to have to put it down. While I would have liked to see more, I realize this book was geared toward younger readers, and allows them to start getting hooked on Kage Baker's books, like a lot of adults have. I can't wait to see what else she has rolling around her fantastic brain.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Charming and Well Written 10 octobre 2011
Par Pop Bop - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
It seems to me that sometimes books are ill-served by the blurbers who help promote them. The blurbs and reviews on this site are a good example of this. The impression you get is that this is a brilliant fantasy piece, or a deep and complex alternate world piece. That seems to overstate things a bit, which could lead you to be disappointed by a book that has certain but mild and restrained charms.

This is a very well-written, very subtle, very calm, (almost "dreamy"), reflection on youth, self-reliance and friendship. Set in an off-kilter imagined world, it touches more on matters of family and wonder than on adventure or conflict. It is a mellow and thoughtful sort of book; brief and touching.

So, not a slam-bang adventure, but calm and well-written, you might want to consider it as a very good introduction, for a young reader, to, for want of a better word, "literary" fiction.
