We raise Belted Galloways and it is very unusual to find anything featuring our beloved Belties. When I saw this book, I knew I had to have it. It was made even better when I realized it featured a New England farm and a farm that had donated two beautiful Beltie cows to the high school I attended years ago.
The story is short and sweet and the illustrations are beautiful. I really wish the illustrations were available as prints.
This is a great story for any farm kid, 4-her, cow lover, Beltie enthusiast, etc.
Paige W. Pendleton has been gaining well-deserved notoriety in the children's book world for her "Black Ledge" series, a collection of taut children's tales for young readers who appreciate adventure and some harmless mischief. The Black Ledge series (so far, two volumes: "The Keeper and the Rune Stone", and "The Keeper and the Alabaster Chalice") are rife with solid story-telling, subtle historical references, and engaging folklore.
Pick up a copy of "Star of Wonder" for all the pre-schoolers you know; it will provide a fun trans-generational read for years. Be sure to also get copies of the Black Ledge series for the grade/middle schoolers. And don't be afraid to buy Black Ledge copies for yourself, too: like the Harry Potter series, Pendleton's Black Ledge series is fun for kids, Mom, Dad, older siblings, and grandparents alike -- something a family of avid readers can all enjoy together!
"Star of Wonder", as well as "The Keeper and the Rune Stone" and "The Keeper and the Alabaster Chalice", are magnificently illustrated by the talented Thomas Block. In a world riddled with fast-food photography and computer-aided imagery, Block's crisp illustrations vividly recall a more connected and innocent time, bringing the stories to life in rich, retrospective fashion -- nostalgia at its finest!
