Wonderful rendition of Anderson's tale 27 novembre 2001
Par Regina Doman - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Whoever reviewed this book in "editorial" needs to have their eyes examined. Grotesque watercolors? Inept humor? What are they talking about? This is the FIRST version of the Tinderbox by H.C. Anderson, one of my favorite fairy tales that I've really found to be pleasing. The three dogs with humoungous eyes are delightfully fantastic, and the hero and heroine well rendered. The more bloodthirsty and amoral elements of the tale are changed (ie: the soldier doesn't lop off the witch's head but instead traps her in a deep pit) to its improvement, IMHO. Warhola's watercolors are cheerful, fairly realistic, quite appropriate for the lighthearted and rambunctious story.
A great introduction to an exuberant tale for the young, especially for boys. It's not a wimpy fairytale by any means, even if there is a princess and kissing at the end. Warhola and Thompson do a commendable job. Should be reprinted!

Amazon, you've got the wrong reiews attributed to this book! 30 novembre 2007

This version of THE TINDERBOX is engaging and lovely. The illustrations are captivating and the storytelling wonderful. For some reason, the reviews Amazon has posted list Moser as the author and puts the story after the Civil War. I don't know which book they're referring to, but it's NOT this one.

I was lying in bed thinking about a story that I read as a young girl and all I could remember was it had three dogs and a tree in it when suddenly The Tinder Box title came to mind. Amazon came to the rescue - what a pleasure to read it again!

My grandchildren received this book through a membership with Stuart Brent's Children's Book Club in Chicago. I read it with them and all were thoroughly engaged in the story. A discussion followed about the dogs. Were they really bad or just made to be bad? My granddaughter was most interested in the dog's role. Providing great literature for children is vital. I thought the illustrations extraordinary as well.
Terrific, AND OK for children! 21 août 2012

Fabulous illustrations and an excellent rendition of this classic story. My wife was concerned the story was too dark for our 5yr old daughter, but she LOVES it! And for those who said it's not for children, have they read ANY other children's classics? Let's see... Hansel and Gretle -father is told by wife to abandon children in the forest because there isn't enough food, then they are lured by candy to a witches home who intends to fatten them up and eat them, only to escape by pushing her into an oven. Snow White - jealous queen tells woodsman to take young girl to the forest and murder her. Little Red Riding hood: girl goes to visit grandmother only to find a wolf is waiting to devour her. Need I go on?
