Présentation de l'éditeur

While most people may be familiar with the Legend of Sleepy Hollow, or perhaps have heard of Ichabod Crane, Katrina Von Tassel and the Headless Horseman, you've never seen them quite like this - through the macabre and ghoulish imagination of the inimitable Gris Grimly. So, are the lights all on? And the windows and doors shut and locked? Then, take a deep breath, and take a look at this fantastically creepy, grisly rendition of one of the scariest ghost stories ever told. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

Biographie de l'auteur

Gris Grimly lives in Pasadena, California, where he runs the Mad Creator Studio. He is also the illustrator of Edgar Allan Poe's Tales of Mystery and Madness, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow (Washington Irving), and, more recently, the bestselling picture book The Dangerous Alphabet by Neil Gaiman.

En américain. Très intéressant à lire et vraiment passionnant. Un excercice de langue sans y penser et un grand plaisir en littérature. De nouveau méconnu en Europe, oubli à réparer.

Il ne faut pas lire ce conte pour l'histoire : elle n'est pas terrible. Ni pour les dessins. Mais je l'ai lu pour le côté VO : le texte est vraiment très accessible et les dessins, bien que moches, nous aide à mieux comprendre. J'ai beaucoup aimé la plume de l'auteur, fluide et simple. La morale, je ne suis pas sûre de l'avoir comprise. Je recommande vraiment ce petit album de 40 pages pour tous ceux voulant s'essayer à la VO : même si on ne comprend pas tout, le texte est quand même très abordable et les dessins sont là pour nous aider.

A Pleasant Surprise 29 juin 2009
Par S. Marston - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I grabbed this for the Kindle since it was free, and like the previous reviewer, I only had a vague idea of the story from various cartoon versions.

I was very pleasantly surprised. I've not read anything else by Washington Irving. The story is simple; the prose is easy to read but in spots is downright beautiful. Some of the scenic descriptions border on poetry. Irving writes with a dry sense of humor; and he has faith in the reader's ability to connect the dots, so he doesn't spell everything out.

It's a short read - in print I guess it would be 30 to 40 pages. One GREAT thing about reading it on Kindle is having the dictionary function, as there were a number of archaic terms with which I was not familiar.

I give it 5 stars for the combination of price and quality of writing. If you'd like some good writing, a peek into America (upstate New York) at the end of the 18th century, and a little wit, go ahead and grab it - especially if it's free!

The Legend of Sleepy Hollow 10 septembre 2004
L'évaluation d'un enfant - Publié sur
Format: Broché
How would you feel if every time you walked outside in the dark, you felt a chill? What if you lived in a town that everyone said was haunted? How would you like it if you were running for your life from a headless horseman? Well that's what the schoolmaster, Ichabod Crane does in The Legend of Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving.

To begin with this book will keep you on the edge better than any other book. When Ichabod is alone in the woods at night and starts hearing noises you have no idea what's going to happen to him. From experience my heart was pumping faster than it ever had before while I was reading a book.

Another good reason to read this book is it will hook you in from the very beginning. It was so good that I was anxious to turn the next page and see what was going to happen. I liked the book so much that I finished the it the same day I started it!

The next reason is it can be scary. When Ichobod is in panic as he rides his horse down the road because he is being chased by the headless horseman you don't know if Ichabod will live or die. Even though it may not be that scary in the beginning it gets a lot scarier later on. Besides the book being scary it is also a love story. Ichabod is deeply in love with the beautiful Miss Katrina Van Tassle but unfortunately so is Brom Bones. He is a rough, bold, and strong man that would do anything to get what he wants. In the book he trashes Ichabod's schoolhouse because he caught him talking to Katrina. That still doesn't stop Ichabod from trying to get the one he believes is his one true love.

Out of all the books that I have ever read The Legend of Sleepy Hollow has hooked me in faster than any other. If you like scary/mystery books this would be the book for you. Although it is a cool book I recommend it to kids 8 years of age and older because of the scary and suspenseful moments the book has in it. So next time you are at the library and want a good book, get The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. Then you can get chills in the dark, too!

Great folk tale classic!!! 2 novembre 2004
Par Jordan Lynn - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Washington Irving had a way with words that none could compare with. His simple and not very scarry at all tale of one of the most famous "ghosts" in history is both delightful in it's humor and wit and charming in it's character description. If you are looking for something to send shivers up your spine and make you quake in fear, you have looked to the wrong story master. Irving was a story teller of everyday people in everyday situations. The comical and the endearing. He made his observations on life and living it and left the afterlife to speculation. That is why "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" is a true literary classic!

Enjoyable 7 février 2009

This version of Irving's tale is designed for younger children. The illustrations are lovely--not scary at all. I do think, however, that the text is a little long for a 4 year old to sit through, especially since some of the vocabulary and sentence structure is a bit advanced. I'd say this was appropriate for 6 and up.

The True Story of the Headless Horseman 8 janvier 2001
Par Bart Johnson - Publié sur
Format: Cahier
Have you ever heard of the Headless Horseman? Have you ever heard the stories about him and how he attacks people in the woods? Have you ever wondered whether or not the story is real?
Find out for yourself by reading Washington Irving's The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. I enjoyed reading this book and i think anyone who has a liking for mysterious legends and superstitions should read this book beacause of the interesting legend the town believes in. There are few characters to keep track of and the story is not hard to follow. The book is long but the reading goes quickly.
The story is set in the late 18th century in a town in New York called Sleepy Hollow. The town believes in a legend of a headless horseman who rides through the woods at night anf attacks people. The main character is a man named Ichabod Crane who is a schoolteacher from Connecticut. He moves to Sleepy Hollow in search of work and ends up going from home to home working as a tutor. One of his students is 18 year old Katrina Van Tassel who comes from a wealthy family. Ichabod gets the idea that he will try to marry Katrina in order to obtain the family's wealth. However, Katrina's boyrfriend Abraham "Brom Bones" Brut has other plans for Ichabod. As the tension rises, Ichabod continues trying to win Katrina until a breathtaking surprise appearance by the town's legend creates as mysterious an ending as they come.
The book has many strengths and few weaknesses. The author manages to create a mood in the book that keeps you always on th edge of your seat waiting for the legend of the Headless Horseman to come into play. The story is simple and easy to follow but is still very interesting. The characters are developed well and have personalities that you can understand and relate to. One such character is Brom Bones who is easily seen as an arrogant egotist. The only weakness of the book was one based on my personal opinion. The end of the story leaves too much to be concluded for my liking.
All in all, this book was a great story. The author wrote the characters in such a way that you had definite feelings towards each one of them. Also, the story line was definitely not without surprise. But if you want to discover what surprises I am talking about then I suggest you read The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.
