Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up Lovers of Oscar Wilde's stories will delight in this new illustrated version of The Canterville Ghost if the picture book format does not keep them from finding it. Wilde's story of an American family who moves into Canterville Chase and annoys a weary ghost with their lack of belief in him is a wry commentary on the ways of British nobility and of their hard-headed American cousins. Like many of Wilde's tales, this one is filled with sophisticated allusions to his social and political milieu, but ends as sentimental romance. Zwerger's wry pictures highlight this tone beautifully. Her toothless ghost is round and comical, as would suit a ghost whom no one fears, and her heroine, Virginia, is young and sweetly boyish. All of the illustrations are set against misty gray watercolor backgrounds except for the climactic scene, echoed on the front cover, in which the tiny huntsmen on the wallpaper call out to Virginia to ``Go Back.'' This will make a fine read-aloud for audiences of secondary students who are prepared to savor Wilde's ironic humor and Zwerger's delicate watercolors.

    So Robert Chiltern is a stuffy 40 year old parliamentarian who i

    So Robert Chiltern is a stuffy 40 year old parliamentarian who is blackmailed by Lady Cheveley to support her illegal scheme. She knows the dishonorable origins of his wealth and threatens to expose him unless he supports her scheme. Robert sees no way out and agrees. Lady Chiltern, his high brow wife is absolutely appalled when her husband tells her he is supporting the scheme. She stresses how she knows him to be an honorable man who would never approve of such a dishonorable scheme and he reneges on his deal with Ms. Cheveley. Enter Lord Goring to the rescue. This wastrel dandy comes in and saves the day. 




    Super witty, super delightful - and such a nice change of pace from Dostoyevsky. This book was lovely because nothing was what it should be and everything was what it shouldn't. The word play was smart and edifying. The only downside was character development. There wasn't much by way of character development. They were shallow, one-dimensional caricatures of ideals and had no history to speak of. We never found out Ms. Cheveley's motivations and such. Still, entirely worth the read.

    This is a play - not a novel

    I enjoy Oscar Wilde, but the editing of this e-book was horrible. I expected more. Since this is play not a story the description is misleading. As for the story, it has more details in it than the movie.
