Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2-A pseudo-tall tale written in verse, Sitka Rose will hold little appeal for readers in the lower 48 and not much more for those in Alaska. Gill's jumble of history (the gold rush) and geography (the formation of the Yukon River and Denali) may be intended to evoke the flavor of stories about Paul Bunyan, but Rose is an unconvincing character. Exaggeration is naturally a hallmark of fabulous stories, but there should be some internal logic to the preposterous claims. Cartwright's watercolor illustrations faithfully represent the action in the text, which doesn't add to the book's success.-Miriam Lang Budin, Chappaqua Public Library, NY

Format: Paperback
This is a charming rhyming picture book about an adventurous young girl named Sitka Rose, with colorful illustrations by Shannon Cartwright that teach as much about Alaska as the story does. "Sitka Rose" is a great tale for teaching both girls and boys about interacting with the world around them and taking life into your own hands. A timeless tale spanning from the creation of the Yukon River and the Denali National Park and Preserve all the way up through the Gold Rush, includes numerous Alaskan animals and a map of Alaska. The author, Shelley Gill, and Cartwright are both Alaska residents -- and it shows. A great book!

Beautiful watercolor technique, but disturbing perspective/scale. And the Prose? poetry? Broken meter, poor flow, bad example of lit for young minds.

It's a fun tall tale. I love that it's a female character. I enjoyed the opportunity to talk to my girls about tall tales and legends and the fun of making up silly stories just for fun to explain something. It also gave us a chance to talk about some local history (being from Seattle, there is a Gold Rush museum we have visited related to the Alaska Gold Rush).
