Über diesen Titel


The author of Imogene's Antlers presents this lively tale of a gentle paper craftsman who must match wits with the devil. Full-color illustrations.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-3 Young John makes his living selling paper toys, flowers, kites, and favors. He wears a paper hat, sleeps in a paper bed, even his house is made of paperand a good thing, too, for when an angry imp has the whole town blown out to sea, John refolds his house into a boat and sails to the rescue. Readers who enjoyed Small's Imogene's Antlers (Crown, 1985) will find the same sort of witty, slightly antique-looking illustrations here. John wears baggy 19th-Century clothes and a genial expression; the diminutive devil, all in gray, scowls his way ferociously through the story; and Small scatters cats, children, and accurately-rendered paper objects all about. Besides being a terrific, imaginative story, this is a natural for use with origami; there is a feasible progression from one model to another (no step-by-step directions, though), and the transformation of house to boat, which occurs over several pages, captures paperfolding's creative magic perfectly. John Peters, New York Public Library
