Editorial Reviews

Review

A lavishly illustrated story about inspiration, courage, and the wonder of seeing architectural beauty gradually take shape." --Midwest Book Review

Delightful color illustrations add the perfect charming touch to this original story in the style of a classic fairy tale. -- Midwest Book Review

I’ve read this to my second graders, and they loved the story. A true delight! -- JoAnne Hale, California Reading Association, Irvine, CA

The artist’s lavish use of bold, primary color—are perfect accompaniment to this charming tale of courage, wit, and resolve. -- Bonnie Graves, award-winning children’s author

From the Back Cover

Ambrose the mouse longs to follow in the tradition of his mouse family and help to build a medieval cathedral.  Join the adventure as Ambrose discovers a way to help William the Master Builder.  In Ambrose and the Cathedral Dream, Katalin Szegedi paints the stage for storyteller Margo Sorenson, and together they inspire children to hope in their own dreams.

More About the Author

Author of twenty-nine books, Margo Sorenson was born in Washington, DC, and spent the first seven years of her life in Spain and Italy, living where there were few children her age, so books became her friends. She finished her school years in California, graduating from the University of California at Los Angeles. After teaching high school and middle school and raising a family of two daughters, Margo is now a full-time writer, writing primarily for young people of all ages, toddlers through high schoolers. Margo enjoys writing for young readers since she believes they are ready for new ideas and experiences, and they really have fun "living" the lives of the characters in books. A National Milken Educator Award recipient, Margo always has a good time meeting with her readers in person or via Skype in school and library settings from Minnesota to California and Hawaii.

Besides winning recognition and awards for her books from various groups, including the American Library Association, Margo was invited to donate and archive her working papers with the internationally-known children's literature collection, the Kerlan Collection, at the University of Minnesota. After having lived in Hawaii, California, and Minnesota, Margo and her husband now live full-time in California. When she isn't writing, she enjoys visiting her grandchildren, playing golf, reading, watching sports, traveling, and hearing from her readers. Margo's latest picture book, SPAGHETTI SMILES, was released in 2014 by Pelican Publishing.

Format: Hardcover
Written for the enjoyment of children ages 4-10, "Ambrose and the Cathedral Dream" is a wonderful picturebook about a small mouse with big dreams. Ambrose the mouse yearns to follow the traditions of his mouse family and help build a gorgeous cathedral, but his daydreams prevent him from practicing the somersaults that startle tired workers and help them stay awake. Ambrose's dream is no less than to help William the Master Builder find his dream. A lavishly illustrated story about inspiration, courage, and the wonder of seeing architectural beauty gradually take shape.

My four year old niece loves to have a book read to her everyday. I had heard from a friend that Margo Sorenson's wrote great children's books, so I purchased Ambrose and the Cathedral. The illustrations are brilliant, and the story of Ambrose's dream and courage has a wonderful inspirational message.

My kids love this book, even my often-wiggly 4 year old. Wonderful story, good message about perseverance (but not preachy), and gorgeous illustrations. Also excellent vocabulary.
