Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-8–This is the Spanish version of the 2008 graphic-novel retelling of Washington Irving’s tale. The small town of Tarry has a new schoolteacher named Ichabod Crane. As he adjusts to his post, he hears rumors that a terrifying headless horseman is on the loose in the nearby valley. Crane, being a superstitious fellow, must face his fears as he crosses creepy Sleepy Hollow in search of beautiful Katrina, his pupil and the daughter of wealthy farmer Balt Van Tassel. However, Crane is not Katrina’s only suitor. The brawny Brom will stop at nothing to spend time with the striking young woman. Smith’s full-color illustrations and Hoena’s narration rejuvenate the famously spooky legend of the 1800s. Notes about Washington Irving and the real Sleepy Hollow, discussion questions, and essay ideas will extend learning beyond the story.–Jessica McClinton, King County Library System, Auburn, WA

Along the Hudson River, in Sleepy Hallow valley, there was a small town by the name of Tarry Town. The local teacher of this town was Ichabod Crane. One day when Ichabod arrived at the school, he was shocked to find the prank that Brom and his comrades had arranged as a way to teach him not to get too close to his admirer Katrina. This was one of many jokes that Brom played on the teacher, as a way to cope with his jealousy. But that did not stop Ichabod with his lessons! Ichabod also gave private choir lessons to Katrina, who in fact was the beautiful daughter of a rich farmer. While Ichabod enjoyed teaching at the local school during the day or giving Katrina private lessons, he became very nervous and uneasy during the night when he walked home along a dark path from a farm that belonged to Van Ripper. This path was filled with creepy echoes, shooting stars, and the chilling and infamous ghost of Jinete sin cabeza. Aside from this teacher's natural curiosity with Science, he also was very intrigued to know more about the legend of this ghost. But one night, after leaving a dinner party, Ichabod discovered the truth about the legend, but does not live on to share the word. Did he really encounter the headless horseman or was it just another trick from Brom to keep him away from Katrina? This story will help readers practice making predictions and inferences by using the graphic format and continuous pictures. A classic story that is transformed into a graphic novel can be used in a classroom when introducing this new vocabulary in the language to students. Teachers can use the text in this book to teach students about how to describe the setting of a story and how to use transitional words and phrases in the language as a way to organize their thoughts. For instance, the teacher can have students identify these sequential or transitional words, such as un poco mas tarde, mas tarde ese dia, despues de la leccion, al dia siguiente, etc. After students have recorded these phrases in a place where they can easily refer to them later on, they can use the phrases when writing fiction stories or personal narratives in Spanish.

Meet the Author

Washington Irving was born in New York City on April 3, 1789, toward the end of the Revolutionary War. His parents named him after George Washington. In 1809, Irving wrote his first book, A History of New-York from the Beginning of the World to the End of the Dutch Dynasty. This book poked fun at the local history and politics. Iving wrote many other satires, humorous stories that commented on people's beliefs and politics. Two of his most famous short stories are "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" and "Rip van Winkle." Irving became one of America's first authors to make a career as a writer, and he is considered the father of the American short story.

Tod Smith grew up in Rhode Island, where he attended the Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Art. He started working in comics in the 1980s, and has been an illustrator for comics and books ever since. He loves to play music in his free time, and when he was in middle school, the Beatles inspired him to start to play the guitar. He lives in Connecticut with his wife, Candace.

Blake A. Hoena grew up in central Wisconsin, where, in his youth, he wrote stories about robots conquering the Moon and trolls lumbering around in the woods behind his parent’s house — and the fact that the trolls were hunting for little boys had nothing to do with Blake’s pesky younger brothers. Later, he moved to Minnesota to pursue a Masters of Fine Arts degree in Creative Writing from Minnesota State University, Mankato. Since graduating, Blake has written more than forty books for children, including retellings of "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" and the Perseus and Medusa myth. Most recently, he’s working on graphic novels for Sports Illustrated Kids and writing stories about superheroes.
