Présentation de l'éditeur

On Halloween night, we dress up in costumes, go trick-or-treating, and carve jack-o'-lanterns. But what is really behind these holiday traditions?

It all started with a greedy man named Jack, who made a pact with the wrong person. When it comes time for Jack to repay his debt, the deal doesn't quite end as he expected. . . .

Katherine Tegen weaves together legend and tradition to tell the story of one of Halloween's most popular icons. With vibrant and dazzling illustrations from Brandon Dorman, The Story of the Jack O'Lantern answers one of the mysteries of that spooky night.

Biographie de l'auteur

Katherine Tegen has been writing stories since she was ten years old. She has always loved celebrating holidays and anything to do with magic. She is the author of the New York Times bestseller The Story of the Easter Bunny, illustrated by Sally Anne Lambert and praised by School Library Journal: "This visually splendid story with folktale rhythms makes a good choice for holiday sharing." She lives in New York City.

Brandon Dorman lives in Puyallup, Washington, and is the creator of Pirates of the Sea! and Santa's Stowaway, and the illustrator of Jack Prelutsky's Be Glad Your Nose Is on Your Face, as well as Halloween Night, by Marjorie Dennis Murray.

Picture book overwhelms preschoolers with Faustian tale 10 octobre 2011
Par Jared Castle - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Looking to scare the bejesus out of preschoolers? Given the intended audience, Katherine Tegen's book -- a creepy blend of Irish folktale, Faust and Dickens -- stands out among other Halloween picture books for its unflinching retelling of "Deal with the Devil."

Jack, the titular character, is described and illustrated in a manner that wouldn't stretch the imagination to discover he's the lazy second-cousin of Scrooge. The fact that Jack makes a Faustian bargain with a "too friendly man" sporting cloven hooves for the price of a meal only proves that he's as short-sighted as he's despicable.

Tasked with drawing the devil, illustrator Brandon Dorman leaves no doubt that "too friendly man" is indeed Mephistopheles, with a widow's peak, sharply-pointed nose, red eyes and the aforementioned cloven hooves. The image of the devil hurling a burning coal into Jack's stolen pumpkin sent a shiver through my sons (ages 8 and 7). Dorman's illustrations capture the right mood; he uses both facing pages for each image, filling the layers and edges with detail. My sons scoured each page and pointed out Jack climbing over a fence ("There he is!") in the background of one of the last pages.

The epilogue explains that the Irish customs and folklore reached America in the 1800s. No doubt children of that generation were steeled for spooky tales. Grimms' Fairy Tales houses characters as equally spine-chilling as what is found in this book. However, today's generation of parents will likely be taken aback by the lack of positive characters and an unsettling ending, especially for preschool readers.

My sons asked several questions when we reached the end of the book:

"Is Jack a zombie?"
"Does he hide outside on Halloween?"
"Does the Devil need your signature?"

Most parents will find this book too scary for their children. The picture book form makes it too `young' for older children who can better understand the Faustian tale. That's too bad because Dorman's illustrations deserve a wider audience. In summary, the book misses its target audience.

Rating: Three stars (one for the story and two for the artwork).

Not the original story AT ALL 23 octobre 2012
Par anonymous - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I have heard several really interesting stories about a man named Jack who tricked the Devil. I expected some things to be altered (like making him a glutton rather than a drunk, which this author did) to make the story more children friendly. What I did not expect was that they author would make Jack stupid and take out the fact that he tricked the Devil. All of the stories have that in common. He outsmarts the devil, and then can't gain entry into Hell (and Heaven obviously doesn't want him). In this version, he is just lazy and dumb, and the Devil tricks him. I would agree with other reviewers that this book isn't appropriate for very young children. I bought it thinking that I could use it for English-language learners who are about 10 years old. The story, however, is so simple and bland (for lack of a better word) that it is not usable for that purpose either. Basically, no one is going to enjoy this book. (Also, another thing that bothered me is that it says that we carve pumpkins to remember Jack, but then, on the next page, it says that jack-o-lanterns were originally carved to ward off evil spirits. These two things cannot both be true, which is annoying). Okay, my complaints are done. I hope that this was helpful to anyone thinking about buying this book.
We loved this book. 25 octobre 2013

Started nap time books so always looking for good books. Tried this seasonal book and was not disappointed. The four year old asked for it to be read again. It was a learning book about stay away from bad people. Also a history lesson on how the Jack O' Lantern came to be. We will enjoy seeing this Halloween all the pumpkins made into Jack O' Lanterns and know how his face came to be.

Definitely not for preschoolers!!! 31 janvier 2012
Par Dawn Albers - Publié sur Amazon.com
One of the main reasons this book only gets one star is the fact that it is a horrible story for the age group it is supposed to be for. This should not be read to preschoolers. In my opinion a book guaranteed to cause nightmares.
