ABBIE AGAINST THE STORM, Marcia Vaughan
5 ABBIE AGAINST THE STORM Marcia Vaughan
Beyond Words Publishing 1999 1582700079
 Hardcover
 VERY GOOD  Minor edgewear on dustjacket Bill Farnsworth 
n this true story, 14-year-old Abbie Burgess has to tend the lighthouse while her father is away. When the worst storm in 200 years breaks out, Abbie must keep the lights burning. Through her own resourcefulness, she manages to protect both the incoming ships and her own family. Abbie is a magnificently brave teen-age girl who struggles against her own fear and self-doubt as well as struggling with the raging forces of nature. Vaughan paints wonderful word pictures with sound and visual imagery. Her use of words suggest how spoken language may have sounded in the mid-nineteenth century. Bill Farnsworth's gorgeous illustrations are equally dramatic and embody the strong spirit of Abby, the wildness of the sea, and the individuality of each character. This is a wonderful book for young readers. It will introduce them to a different era through the eyes of a woman who lived over a century ago. The epilogue that gives historical facts about the real Abby is an excellent addition to the story and makes it resonate with even more meaning.

"This is one of the best children's books I've come across! The subject of skeletons can be scary to a child; but here, it's presented with such delightful pictures and silly text, my 4 year-old niece "forgot" to be afraid. It's a perfect length to hold a child's interest through to the end. You can't help but cheer on Boogie Bones, as he "trips the light fantastic" at the dance. And when his true identity is revealed, it's a child who shows the townspeople there's nothing to fear. Your own children can relate to this, and maybe even conquer some of their own fears. All in all, a great book for kids of any age!"

This book will show children how art transforms ordinary things.

Biologist Harrison has often used whimsical poetry to capture the imaginations of children interested in science. There's no poetry in this Earthworks picture book about caves, but Harrison's simple, fluid language is winning all the same. When Millicent the cow strays from the shade, Farmer Howe wonders what has drawn her away from familiar comforts. He discovers that underground breezes from caves beneath his pasture are keeping his cows cool. Then the science kicks in, as Harrison describes caves formation and the underground ecosystems that thrive in the cool dark. The picture, filled with surprising movement, nicely picture both the "story" and the science. An author's note and a bibliography of further readings are appended. It's science with grace, sure to please and inform.

Ada Ruth's mother temporarily moves to Chicago for a job cleaning railroad cars, an opportunity for African-American women occurring because World War II siphoned off so much of the work force. Ada Ruth stays behind with her grandmother, waiting for news and much-needed money to arrive in the mail from her mother as the icy rural Michigan winter sets in; even a starving stray kitten is a financial burden in this quietly contemplative first-person narrative. The appealing watercolor illustrations convey yearning and pride in the midst of poverty. A 2005 Caldecott Honor Book.

 VERY GOOD - inscription inside front cover
 Dustjacket in fine shape 
David, the out-of-control monster-child from David Shannon's Caldecott Honor Book No, David! is back... and ready to disrupt the class. Shannon remembers the word "no" all too clearly from his childhood, and, as he says in his introduction, "It seems that kids haven't changed much over the years, and neither have school rules, some of which date back even further than the invention of sneakers." In David Goes to School, young David shows up late to class, goes wacko at the blackboard, chews gum in class, yells answers out of turn, pulls pigtails, stares out the window, cuts in line, has a food fight ("I don't care who started it!" says the teacher), lingers at recess, and draws on his desk. Colorful, hilarious, childlike illustrations examine our strangely appealing demon-boy at eye level, which is especially disgusting as David stretches an enormous mass of bubble gum from his pointy-toothed maw. After an intense day of exuberant misbehaving, however, he stays after school and washes all the desks until they sparkle. The day ends with a gold star and a pat on the head... something that any child (or adult) would find satisfying.

The annual summer visit to the country home of the Old Ones, the uncles and aunts who raised Daddy, brings joy and good times. The story captures all of the elements of a typical reunion--the abundant good food, the old folks reminiscing, the children playing--but it avoids excessive detail that will bore young story listeners. Johnson has a way of saying so much, with so few words, that children are likely to enjoy this story.
