Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Colin Thompson's enigmatic artwork once again takes center stage in Falling Angels, the story of a girl who can fly. Sally thinks she's the only one who possesses this power but soon finds out her grandmother once flew, too. (Hutchinson [Trafalgar Sq., dist.], $16.95 32p ages 5-8 ISBN 0-09-176817-9; Oct.) In The Haunted States of America: Haunted Houses and Spooky Places in All 50 States... and Canada, Too! Joan Holub tells of ghosts said to guard buried treasure in Arizona's Superstition Mountains; in California, the Winchester Mystery House, built by the wife of the heir to the Winchester rifle fortune, was designed with maze-like hallways, secret rooms, as well as stairs and doors "leading to nowhere" in an effort to elude the ghosts she thought were haunting her. ( Sept.)

Format: Paperback
The prose and illustrations are integral to each other and yet some readers might like one more than the other. The book is a unique experience. You can spend hours looking at it or just read it in a few minutes.This treasure should be savored. I wont take your time but just a small portion of the cover is a tale in itself. The girl and her grandmother are shown flying.There is a lot more to the picture. Grandmother is taking her final physical flight. She is dressed for the very cold. Grandchild is lightly dressed with no shoes or socks. Letters of grandmothers life history are falling out of her handbag.

He makes children's books or art books? I buy them to give to my adult family and friends, along with Shaun Tan he is my top list of gift giving ideas. I recommend simply ALL of his books.

Format: Hardcover
Sally has been able to fly even before she could crawl, traveling the world in search of adventure. She collects treasures from around the world but longs for greater understanding of what she sees. This will appeal to kids with good reading skills as it presents a detailed whimsical story of exploration.
