Descriptions du produit

On a stormy winter's day, a baby boy, Naoki, is swept into a fisherman's boat by a great wave. Years pass, but still Naoki does not grow. Must he return to the ocean in order to become a young man? The answer arrives in the form of a mythic fish. Japanese artist Hokusai is one of the world's most celebrated printmakers. His famous woodcut, 'The Great Wave', epitomizes the artist's characteristic techniques and themes. In this children's book, the artist's masterpiece is the genesis for a simple but compelling story, beautifully illustrated in pictures that recall Hokusai's brilliant use of detail, perspective and colour. A stunning reproduction of the woodcut itself is featured in the book, supplemented by information about the artist and his work. At once modern and classic, The Great Wave introduces young readers to a beloved artist and his timeless portrayals of nature and transformation.

Nice art, weak story 5 mai 2013
Par wiredweird - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Hokusai's "Great Wave" is as recognizable as the Mona Lisa - one of the true treasures of world art. It's inspired many artists in many ways, including this charming children's fable.

There's not a lot to the story, a boy found by a childless couple, under mysterious, perhaps magical circumstances. Given such a versatile start, I was surprised that the writer did so little with the characters and story line. The artwork redeems this book, though. Its style stays close to the woodcut tradition, and gives a strong impression of Edo-era Japan. The modern look melds well, though, keeping it from being mere imitation. Dragons and fish from Eastern myth help out, too. In the end, though, lack of drama leaves this nothing more than pleasant. (I mean, even The Cat in the Hat has more in the way of conflict, crisis, and resolution.)

If you can find it as reasonable price, it could be an enjoyable one - as well as a read-to-me kid's intro to famous imagery. I can't call it a must-have for any collection, though.

Great Wave book supports study of Hokusai 8 mars 2014

I purchased this book for my Montessori 3-6 classroom as part of our Asian art studies. I made matching cards of his work and art activities where the students used water colors to paint their own version of several of his famous paintings. By the time the book arrived, the students had learned to recognize both this art piece and his style of painting in general. They greatly enjoyed looking at the vibrant art work and following the story line. This book is a wonderful addition to Asian studies for children from through three through upper elementary grades.

Used it in my elementary art lesson on Hokusai. Includes aspects of Japanese culture in story format.
