Crackling Brat

Crackling Brat

by Andrew Matthews

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-Crackling Brat, a fantastical child who has power over fire, wind, thunder, and lightning, laughingly outwits three ferocious obstacles-Snow Cat, Night Bear, and Hunger Wolf-to save his father from the ravages of Time. The language is fresh, primarily due to the inventive use of metaphor. ``Night Bear's fur was as dark as midnight. His eyes were star-colored and his teeth were sharper than the points of the new moon.'' The illustrations are impressionistic; the characters' appearances are outlandish. The book has a certain appealing joie de vivre, but the story itself is quickly forgotten.-Suzanne Hawley, Laurel Oak Elementary School, Naples, FL
