Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Faulkner's ( The Amazing Voyage of Jackie Grace ) latest, calling to mind a glorified comic strip of yesteryear, is reminiscent both in artistic and narrative style of the works of Howard Pyle. With its round-moon faces, gargoyles, talking dolls and Romanesque architecture, the book contains very little traditional text but is told primarily through dialogue that pops off the pages in cartoon balloons. Although the overall effect may prove somewhat disconcerting, there is a charm here that appeals directly to the imagination. Considered a crybaby by her peers, Robin stays home from school to avoid their taunts. Out of a trunk in her room springs Mr. Kolshinsky, a magical 17th-century Viennese gentleman ``sent to find a hero.'' Robin isn't sure that she is the right choice, but shows that she has the pluck to meet adversity straight on. With a spirited rendition of ``Button Up Your Overcoat,'' she wakes Kolshinsky's drowsy army, and together they defeat their adversaries in a pillow fight. Children who appreciate a challenge will have fun with this quirky romp. Ages 5-9. (Oct.)
School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-- Robin pretends to be sick so she does not have to face the children at school who pick on her and make her cry. Bored at home, she opens a dusty old toy chest; out pops a bold Turkish captain, Kolshinsky, looking for a heroic type to help him fight his battles. Robin promptly follows him through the toy chest into a fantasyland in which beautiful songs and rollicking pillow fights make everything right. Faulkner deftly combines somber tones of watercolors and crosshatchings over pen and ink to create the dreamlike world that Robin magically enters. Based on an actual historical event, the 1683 invasion of Vienna by the Turks, the illustrations are extremely satirical, depicting overstuffed sultans and a sultry, sneering sun. The text moves like a comic strip, with words appearing in various sized bubbles over the characters' heads; some phrases are printed twice as large as others to emphasize specific expressions. The cartoon image is also underlined in the illustrations as Faulkner manipulates space by dividing a page into smaller sections to create frames. The surrealistic aura is similiar to Van Allsburg's style of awe and wonder in The Polar Express (Houghton, 1985), with a perfect, unpredictable ending that will delight young readers. --Debra S. Gold, Cuyahoga County Public Library, Cleveland
