Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

Make a new acquaintance every time you can; You'll find it interesting and a very helpful plan. It means more knowledge. You cannot meet any one without learning something from him if you keep your ears open and your eyes open. Every one is at least a little different from every one else, and the more people you know, the more you may learn. Peter Rabbit knows this, and that is one reason he always is so eager to find out about other people. He had left Jimmy Skunk and Bobby Coon in the Green Forest and had headed for the Smiling Pool to see if Grandfather Frog was awake yet. He had no idea of meeting a stranger there, and so you can imagine just how surprised he was when he got in sight of the Smiling Pool to see some one whom he never had seen before swimming about there. He knew right away who it was. He knew that it was Mrs. Quack the Duck, because he had often heard about her. And then, too, it was very clear from her looks that she was a cousin of the ducks he had seen in Farmer Brown's dooryard. The difference was that while they were big and white and stupid-looking, Mrs. Quack was smaller, brown, very trim, and looked anything but stupid. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

livre anglophone broché souple en papier recyclé format moyen réédition récente (1993) d'un classique de 1917 faisant partie d'une grande série d'histoires animalières pour enfants valorisant la protection de la faune nord-américaine; dans cet épisode, on assiste aux mésaventures de Mme Quack la cane au sein de la communauté des animaux de la Forêt Verte; cette fable un peu moraliste mais tellement attendrissante ravira tous les enfants et même les plus grands à l'heure où les préoccupations de protection de la faune sont devenues plus partagées (l'auteur pourrait être considéré comme visionnaire pour l'époque!); les illustrations sont indigentes dans cette édition bon marché (quelques gravures n&b) mais ce petit livre est à acheter sans réserve pour lire ou faire lire à vos enfants ou petits-enfants soit en le traduisant soit directement en anglais dès qu'ils se seront familiarisés avec cette langue!

1.0 étoiles sur 5 If you hate guns and want to cry... 17 avril 2016
Par Hannah - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Get ready to say, "men and their terrible guns" at about every third paragraph. We own all 21 Adventure series released by Dover. We really enjoy all these books. I read from one every day to my son. I'm okay with Burgess' conservation-minded slant in his books. Conservation was different in the early 1900s vs the fascist, human-hating, green/enviro-centric lunatics of today. I do believe hunters were shooting ducks out of the sky with liberty in 1918 (or so). I also think it might be good for my son to hear an impression of what the hunted might be feeling about the hunt; and how frightening guns are from the other end of the barrel. The Adventures of Poor Mrs. Quack will be read in our line-up continuously—but know that it is one long, long, preachy, ant-gun-message-laden bummer with only a few chapters at the end being of the fun and whimsy in other "Adventures of..." books like The Adventures of Old Man Coyote, Peter Cottontail, Chatterer the Red Squirrel, Reddy Fox, Buster Bear, Danny Meadow Mouse, Grandfather Frog and many others. If you are buying just a few or one of Burgess' books—pick another.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 NOT the original illustrations 1 septembre 2011
Par Greg J. Lovern - Publié sur Amazon.com

This review applies to the edition published by Dover. Unfortunately all reviews show up under all editions, regardless of publisher.

Thornton Burgess' animal stories are wonderful and I highly recommend them. However, the prospective buyer should be informed that the illustrations in this Dover edition of this title are NOT by the original illustrator, Harrison Cady. Instead, they are crude redrawings by another artist, Thea Kliros. Although they are better than the illustrations in the Dover titles for which artist Pat Stewart did the crude redrawings, they are not as charming as Cady's work.

Some of the other titles in this Dover series of Thornton Burgess books do have original Harrison Cady illustrations.

To get real Harrison Cady illustrations of this title, you'll have to buy a used book. There were two sets of original Harrison Cady illustrations for this title:
-- Published by Little, Brown, with 6 full-page grayscale illustrations.
-- Published by Grosset & Dunlap, with 14 full-page line drawings, including line-drawing versions of all 6 original grayscale illustrations in the Little, Brown editions, plus many smaller line drawings.

The redrawings in this Dover edition are of the 6 Little, Brown illustrations.

I recommend the Grosset & Dunlap editions. Cady did them decades later, after he had grown as an artist. Even though the Grosset & Dunlap line drawings are simpler than the Little, Brown grayscale illustrations, they are more charming. On the other hand, the Little, Brown grayscale illustrations better show Cady's remarkable vision for Burgess' creatures, so if you can get both, that's ideal. But either one is better than the drawings in this Dover edition.

Regarding the story itself -- Burgess was strongly anti-hunting, and while that comes through in most of his books, it's really heavy-handed in this one. So much so that it's essentially a polemic. I'm reading it to my kids now -- their choice -- and it gets a little embarrassing sometimes. I like that it's making my kids think about what life is like for the hunted ducks, but Burgess really laid it on thick. Overall still a good book and well worth reading, but if you're deciding what Burgess book to read next, I'd suggest leaving this one for last.

The stories of life in the green forest are timeless. Bed time has needed to be streached so that an extra chapter can be read. Mrs. Quack is one lucky duck, and this is the story of how she comes to the smiling pool. Very well written, it kept the attention of both father and daughters. If you are looking for a way to spend time with your children, I highly recommend this book and others in the series.

I simply adore this book series. This story beautifully introduces the skill of empathy for others in a way that children can understand. My six year old says it was sad in the beginning but then in the end I was saying" woo hoo" and was so happy.

I am a writer also so read every book I have time for. Mrs Quack got four stars as I don't think it is quite as good as my story called MOTHER DUCK BUILDS A NEST, but it was a good book I think children would like.
