The Village of Basketeers

Overview

In the Village of Basketeers, the soil is too rocky for farming and the sea too rough for fishing. Luckily, the grasses and reeds that grow nearby are ideal for making baskets and a basketeer can weave anything—a house for a duck, a barn for a horse, or a carriage fit for a queen.

Life is good in the village until one day when the wind blows a little harder than it blew the day before. And it only gets worse the next day, and the next. The townspeople have big ideas for taming ...

Overview

In the Village of Basketeers, the soil is too rocky for farming and the sea too rough for fishing. Luckily, the grasses and reeds that grow nearby are ideal for making baskets and a basketeer can weave anything—a house for a duck, a barn for a horse, or a carriage fit for a queen.

Life is good in the village until one day when the wind blows a little harder than it blew the day before. And it only gets worse the next day, and the next. The townspeople have big ideas for taming the wind, but the wind is in no mood to be caught. Can little Elsa and Kip coax the wind into settling down, with the cleverest idea of all?

In this original tale, Lynda Gene Rymond creates an enchanting village that is brought to life by Nicoletta Ceccoli’s mesmerizing illustrations, full of sunset color and bursting with energy.

As a fierce wind blows stronger and stronger through their village, two excellent basket makers try and fail to capture it, but give two young friends, Kip and Elsa, an idea that just might work.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Sweetly told and illustrated in fruity ice-cream pastel colors, this fluffy tale of child heroes attempts to be a modern fairy tale." School Library Journal
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-Elsa and Kip live atop a cliff in a small village where people make their living through basketry. When a strong wind comes along and then blows harder day after day, something must be done. The townsfolk weave baskets-one strong and then one large-to trap it, to no avail. Finally, the children decide to try a different approach; they create a tiny basket filled with down that captures the wind's fancy and encourages it to settle down to sleep. Sweetly told and illustrated in fruity ice-cream pastel colors, this fluffy tale of child heroes attempts to be a modern fairy tale. While the writing is competent, the narrative feels rushed and the ending falls short. Ceccoli's round-faced, folksy people live in a curved, windblown world full of light and fantasy colors that playfully complement the slight story.-Angela J. Reynolds, Washington County Cooperative Library Services, Hillsboro, OR Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
