Format: Hardcover
I'm a mom with boys, and we are a read aloud family. They loved this fairy tale right from the front cover -- that shaggy giant.

The illustrations are really good; the plot is a little jumpy and it seems like sections are missing.

I liked the message about actions and consequences. At first, the boy knowingly breaks the rules by releasing Iron Hans, and then he runs away to avoid consequences. Later, when he accidentally breaks the rules at the golden spring, he gets three chances, and then he is banished alone to make his way in the world. "Sorry" isn't enough.

A little bit in there about the fascination of the forbidden. Much more could have been made about contentment with simple comforts. Also, missed a chance to talk about how depending on others gives them a chance to make amends for their past misdeeds.

This particular telling of the story of Iron Hans is exquisite in the telling and in the illustration. It is simple enough for quite young children to understand while retaining the deep richness of the story. The story itself is a wonderful and ageless parable of how a little boy is initiated and grows into the fullness and responsibility of adulthood. I recommend that it be included on the bookshelf of every child - boy or girl. This is rich family reading for bedtime or around the fire at night.

This Iron Hans book is beautifully written and very inspiring. My grandchildren loved it! And I enjoyed sharing it with them, especially the 5 to 10 years olds. We need more children's book with such an inspiring message!
