Revue de presse

Praise for The Bake Shop Ghost (written by Jacqueline K. Ogburn)
* "Caldecott Honor Book illustrator Priceman keeps things meringue-light, indicating Cora Lee's ghost with a few fierce strokes and filling the rest of each spread with lines and colors that swirl like ribbons of icing and suggest the expressive styles of Bemelmans and de Brunhoff...Mouths will water just as surely as hearts warm at the story's touching conclusion." --Booklist, starred review
"This book is yummy!"--Daniel Pinkwater (N.P.R.'s Weekend Edition Saturday )
Praise for Horns and Wrinkles (illustrated by Nicoletta Ceccoli)
SLJ hot pick, September 2006
#3 Book Sense Winter 2006-2007 Children's
"Horns and Wrinkles is the stuff of legends."--Curled Up with a Good Kids Book.com
* "Tongue-in-cheek humor brings a delightful zing to the playfully inventive storytelling and fast-paced plot. Enchanting sketches foreshadow each chapter, adding to the wonder. A new Mississippi River fable has been born."--School Library Journal, starred review
Praise for Firefighters in the Dark (illustrated by Nicoletta Ceccoli)
* "Ceccoli's beautiful, lyrical illustrations, in acrylics and pastels, give a mythic quality to Slater's tale."--Kirkus, starred review

HASH(0x8e2db21c) étoiles sur 5 Magically beautiful! 18 juillet 2010
Par Tara L. Vigouroux - Publié sur Amazon.com

This is definitely more of a picture book than a story book - in fact there is no real story at all, but the illustrations are amazing! My daughter thought this book was fabulous, she loves anything magical or mythological, and this book just led her imagination down the path where it loves to go. Perfect for any child who likes something a bit different.

HASH(0x8e2db198) étoiles sur 5 Beautiful Illustration 15 septembre 2010

This is a beautiful book! I bought it because I loved the illustrations, but said I was buying it for my 6 month old son. Well, it's certainly not interesting to him...yet. The writing is simple, yet poetic and it really makes you curious as to what each of the mythical beasts actually are. The glossary at the end was invaluable. The art is magnificant! I'm sincerely hoping that some day my son will love this book, so that I can redecorate his room with this book as the central theme!
HASH(0x8e2d8fc0) étoiles sur 5 A splash of mermaids 13 novembre 2011
Par A. Williams - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
What do you call a group of dragons? A dignity! What about a collection of mermaids? A splash!

Children who love animals, especially fantastical ones, will enjoy learning these "group" names (and might just be inspired them to learn group names of non-fantastical animals, as well).

I really appreciate what Ogburn did here, and I love some of the names she created. That said, I was rather disappointed to learn that Ogburn had made up the group names. Of course this isn't her "fault" by any means! And someone has to do it. But I guess I just wanted this to be clearer from the start or something. However, I *love* the variety and scope of the creatures she includes, from the very familiar to the much less so.

I could never really decide if I liked the illustrations or thought they were a little odd. Some are quite pretty and mystical, but they don't always strike me as something that would appeal to children (but, since I have no children to test this on, that's just me guessing). Typically each page contains about three-to-four creatures that are similar, and sometimes it's a little hard to figure out which creature is which (i.e. which illustration is the Phoenix and which is the fire bird).

What raised the star rating for me was the fantastic listing of creatures in the back-matter. Ogburn does give us the background and brief information about each of the creatures and I was thrilled at her concise and informative descriptions (including the creatures "country of origin"). Part of me wants to own this book just for reference. And definitely the book is worth looking at if only just for this!
HASH(0x8e2e2510) étoiles sur 5 Gorgeous illustrations 28 avril 2012
Par Maria - Publié sur Amazon.com
My 7-year-old daughter, who loves dragons, found this book at the library today, and now I'm ready to buy it! I love the concept and the pictures. As other reviewers have said, this is not a story. It is exactly what the title says it is: collective nouns for magical beasts. I think that the nouns Ogburn has assigned to the groups of creatures are quite lovely and poetic. On every page you will see vibrant pictures of a group (or groups) of magical beasts and the name(s) she's given them: "a bolt of hippogriffs," "a grace of unicorns," etc. The illustrations are incredible. I suppose some children might find the eyes of some of the creatures scary, but both of my kids (ages 7 and 10) think the pictures are "really cool." The glossary in the back is great. I hadn't heard of all of these creatures, so I appreciate the descriptions, including the countries of origin. I'm thrilled to see that this is a "bargain book" on Amazon, available for less than $7.

Wow, just wow! The illustrations in this book are both soft and fierce, magical and real, light and bold. It's a treasure to behold, and my children were delighted with each page turn. They loved the adorable were-foxes and of course the unicorns were a big hit, with their rainbow bodies and glowing white wings. Although this isn't a story, but a collection of made-up collective nouns (very clever!), my girls were interested in all the mythical beasts, and as we were reading, we vowed to look up quite a few. But--we didn't need to! There's a glossary in the back explaining the origin of each beast and its special powers. This is a book to pore over, not simply read and put down. There's so much detail to the drawings, you need to stare to take it all in. While I wouldn't recommend this for the youngest readers (4 and younger), my girls aged 6 and 10 were immediately drawn in and mesmerized.
