Overview

Reading to a child is one of the great pleasures of life, for parents and grandparents and children alike. This delightful version of RIP VAN WINKLE, adapted by acclaimed author Luke Hayes, will always be on hand to make bedtime or any time a special time.

RIP VAN WINKLE FOR KIDS is a version of Washington Irving’s beloved classic, adapted for young readers. It tells the story of Rip, a lazy, congenial farmer in colonial America who, eager to avoid the nagging of his sour-spirited wife, goes rambling in the Catskill Mountains. He encounters an odd little man lugging a cask up a ravine. More strange men, a game of bowling, a drink of liquor, and Rip falls asleep. When he awakes, he has the surprise of his life.

The story is sweet and nostalgic, as meaningful to adults as it is appealing to children. This version includes all of Irving’s evocative imagery and humor, told with plenty of dialogue and easy-to-grasp language.

RIP VAN WINKLE FOR KIDS is just right for those 6-9 year olds who want to stretch their imagination. It’s a story that they’ll come back to over and over. A true bedtime classic.
