Description du produit

Revue de presse

“Anne Ursu’s (Breadcrumbs) latest novel explores what makes someone (or something) ‘real.’ The author mines the potential of magic and mystery in the story of 11-year-old Oscar, whom Master Caleb, ‘the first magician in a generation,’ plucked from the orphanage.” (Shelf Awareness (starred review))

“It’s all highly rewarding and involving, with a tight plot, resonant themes, a gripping adventure, a clearly limned fantasy landscape, and a sympathetic main character.” (The Horn Book)

“Deeply moving, with language powerful and true as a child’s voice. Grade: A.” (Cleveland Plain Dealer)

“Wholly unexpected with plot twists and turns you won’t see coming, no matter how hard you squint, Ursu’s is a book worth nabbing for your own sweet self. Grab that puppy up.” (Betsy Bird, A Fuse #8 Production (SLJ blog))

“There is such richness to this tale about a world seemingly falling apart. All of the fairy tale allusions. But in the end, The Real Boy is such a compelling fantasy story because of the two children who, amidst the chaos of their world, can help each other so much.” (Richie's Picks)

“Anne Ursu keeps readers turning the pages until the unexpected but satisfying ending of the story…. I believe this book will be around for a long, long time.” (Anita Silvey, Children’s Book-A-Day Almanac Anita Silvey, Children’s Book-A-Day Almanac)

“Anne Ursu’s The Real Boy is a fantasy in the truest, deepest sense: it illuminates the human experience by giving substance and shape to that which is otherwise intangible. Beautifully written and elegantly structured, this fantasy is as real as it gets.” (Franny Billingsley, author of Chime)

“Anne Ursu has created a brilliant fantasy, alive with the smells and sights and sounds of a place both familiar and strange - but the true magic of The Real Boy lies in the powerful friendship that grows between Callie and Oscar. A joy to read.” (Linda Urban, author of A Crooked Kind of Perfect)

“The Real Boy is an engaging fable about what happens when people reject real life in favor of pleasure, of magic. I enjoyed it very much.” (Nancy Farmer, bestselling and multiple-award-winning author of The House of the Scorpion)

Présentation de l'éditeur

National Book Award Longlist
2014 Bank Street Children's Book Committee Best Book of the Year
"Beautifully written and elegantly structured, this fantasy is as real as it gets."—Franny Billingsley, author of Chime

The Real Boy, Anne Ursu's follow-up to her widely acclaimed and beloved middle grade fantasy Breadcrumbs, is a spellbinding tale of the power we all wield, great and small.

On an island on the edge of an immense sea there is a city, a forest, and a boy named Oscar. Oscar is a shop boy for the most powerful magician in the village, and spends his days in a small room in the dark cellar of his master's shop grinding herbs and dreaming of the wizards who once lived on the island generations ago. Oscar's world is small, but he likes it that way. The real world is vast, strange, and unpredictable. And Oscar does not quite fit in it.

But now that world is changing. Children in the city are falling ill, and something sinister lurks in the forest. Oscar has long been content to stay in his small room in the cellar, comforted in the knowledge that the magic that flows from the forest will keep his island safe. Now, even magic may not be enough to save it.

A sign of a good children’s book is that it can win the appreciation and affection of an adult. The Real Boy, having been read by a real 18 year-old, passes this test gorgeously.
Anne Ursu has a cheeky prose style. She writes often about cats; her prose sort of reminds me of a playful kitten batting the reader around. This way and that, always playful, sometimes painful!, and very good at winning the reader over. Ursu writes about all the cozy things that make literature - especially children’s literature - good: libraries, cats, cheese and bread, magic and spells, and magicians gone awry.

I know books thrive on conflict, but I almost wanted to read about one of Oscar’s normal, safe days, when he spends his time grinding plants or reading books. Ursu describes the trite in a way that makes the reader feel snuggled in a blanket.

Also, I loved little Oscar. He was so frightened and small and unsure; not your average hero, for sure. I just wanted to give him a hug the whole time and tell him that things would be alright.

I’m an adult! This book is for children! But it’s good, for anyone, because the words and story are worthwhile.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 4.45 Stars Overall - Charming fantasy that packs a punch 27 mai 2014
Par justme - Publié sur Amazon.com

Wow, what a complex little story! It's really not exactly like anything else I've read and can call to mind. It's a bit like _Harry Potter_ mixed with Lois Lowry's _The Giver_ (though I've never read past the first book in The Giver series), but even that combination isn't really accurate. In this book we meet Oscar, an orphan and alchemists' downstairs hand. Oscar prepares ingredients for the alchemist's magical works in the cellar. Aside from the looming presence from Wolf, the Master's Apprentice, Oscar's life is one he generally finds agreeable--he likes his cats, his mental maps, and his routines. He understands the ingredients he works with (barks, herbs, plants, ect) and cats and little else. So much so that he is almost entirely disconnected from other humans, save Caleb the Magician, Wolf; Malcolm the Baker; and Callie, the healer's apprentice. Oscar does have one secret: he can read and cherishes stolen moments in the Master's library. Master Caleb has started to behave a little mysteriously, some times with long absences, then Wolf is attacked, and The City's children start getting ill, and bad things start happening within the marketplace. With their masters away, it's up to Oscar and Callie to help as much as they can, while they try to solve a multi-tiered set of mysteries. In a world where magic exists, but "big" magic is rare (and the magic that exits is abused and and used for frivolous things), Oscar, Callie, and a troupe of cats are on their own to figure out what the Magic Workers are up to, what's making the children ill, what is lurking in the forest and attacking the market, and what is making City children sick. Strong themes of friendship and perseverance reign here. Much like the title character in Neil Gaiman's _Coraline_, Oscar discovers that courage is doing the right thing despite being frightened.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 A very beautiful children's book, well worth the read for kids and grownups 11 décembre 2015

This is an absolutely beautiful children's book, good for a good reader at age 9 or so, but also worth a read right up to adult. It is in a fantasy setting, but the story isn't really about the fantasy setting. It is a character driven story about an unusual protagonist, and is an emotional look at the heart of a special boy. I am glad I did not know what was unusual about the boy when I began reading it, because when the lightbulb went off it was worth it. Suffice to say what was unusual has nothing to do with a fantasy setting. I was very very glad to see this type of child used as a protagonist and hero. This is now one of my favorite books. If your child reads it, read it also and you will find you have some things to discuss.

Having read many stories from the genre of fantasy throughout middle school, I was quite impressed with The Real Boy. Although I enjoyed the plot of the book tremendously, it was the main character that captured my attention. Oscar is a young boy working for a wizard named Caleb. Although he was not technically an apprentice, Oscar gained skills similar to an apprentice by secretly reading books written by wizards from the past. He had the incredible ability to create a data base in his mind for all of the herbs he read about. Oscar never let on to anyone that he had this special ability.

While Oscar may sound like other characters included in fantasy stories, there is one major difference. Unlike the majority of fantasy characters I have read about, Oscar is extremely shy and overwhelmed when placed in social situations. Although Anne Ursu never stated it in the book, I believe Oscar has a form of Asperger's Syndrome. Watching him grow as a character and befriend Callie made me even more intrigued by the story. I enjoyed watching him overcome his challenges. While Oscar would never be completely comfortable being in public, he does learn to face his fears with Callie's help.

Middle schools are filled with students possessing many different talents. Unfortunately, books written for this age group often portray middle school students as being the same. Anne Ursu wrote a story I wish more middle school students would read. Perhaps the book would help them to recognize that differences are not always bad. Oscar became a hero despite his challenges.

I highly recommend this book to middle school readers!

Anne Ursu took one or two aspects from an old story and spun a brand new fairy tale. The Real Boy is about a magician's hand, Oscar, who doesn't fit in with everyone else. He's odd, and he knows it. Through an unexpected friendship with the healer's apprentice, Oscar begins to unearth secrets about the island he calls home. What he finds changes the way he views magic, and the world, forever.

Magic, something that started out so beautiful, turned ugly in the face of greed and selfishness. Disrespect for magic's power and disregard of ancestral warnings are among the many pitfalls of the magic smiths. Ursu gives us a cautionary tale to never let a hunger for wealth, fame, knowledge, power, or anything else, override what you know in your heart to be right.

Ursu's heartfelt novel is beautifully crafted. Adults may enjoy the book more than children, but either way, it's a wonderful story with a great message.

Content: A couple of scary scenes/fantasy violence, but I consider this clean.
