Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Angela Barrett's romantic cover art captures the mood of wonderment throughout Rocking Horse Land: And Other Classic Tales of Dolls and Toys, edited by Naomi Lewis. The six stories here include Hans Christian Andersen's "The Steadfast Tin Soldier," E. Nesbit's "The Town in the Library" and a Baba Yaga folktale; Barrett's Victorian-flavored illustrations conjure the imagined comforts of a cheerful British nursery. (Candlewick, $19.99 144p ages 8-12 ISBN 0-7636-0897-1; Nov.) Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature
Six classic tales, rich in language and imagination, lavishly and lovingly presented on wide- margined, heavy paper, are brought to life by Barrett's intriguing watercolor and pencil illustrations. These stories were originally collected in a larger but more modestly produced volume entitled The Silent Playmate (Victor Gollancz, 1979). Each story is prefaced by an introduction by Lewis and an exquisite full-page silhouette reminiscent of the work of Sir Arthur Rackham. The vocabulary of some of the stories may be a stretch for young readers, but the introductions and the stunning illustrations will lure them. The stories are Mrs. Fairstar's "The Memoirs of a London Doll," H. C. Andersen's "The Steadfast Tin Soldier," Ruth Ainsworth's "Rag Bag," "Vasilissa, Baba Yaga and the Little Doll," Laurence Housman's "Rocking Horse Land," and E. Nesbit's "The Town in the Library." The stories represent the best of a grand tradition in children's literature in which today's children deserve to share. This is a book to treasure and to keep. 2000, Candlewick, . Ages 5 to 12. Reviewer: Linnea Hendrickson
School Library Journal
Gr 4-6-Lewis has gathered six classic stories, all with the theme of dolls and toys, and put them in this handsome collection. The tales, including Hans Christian Andersen's "The Steadfast Tin Soldier" and E. Nesbit's "The Town in the Library," have a timeless quality about them with appealing plots for children. What makes this book special, however, are the detailed illustrations peppered throughout the stories. Intricate pictures of doll houses, black-and-white silhouettes of toys, and full-page spreads of magical creatures all enhance the beauty of this anthology. To complete the work, Lewis has included an introduction to each selection, aimed at more adult enthusiasts of children's literature than at children themselves. While the old-fashioned appearance may limit readership, the book will appeal to a special audience and deserves shelf space in most collections.-Anne Knickerbocker, Cedar Brook Elementary School, Houston, TX Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
