Overview

The Legend of Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving, Russ Flint

When Ichabod Crane becomes the new schoolmaster of Sleepy Hollow, he quickly and happily adjusts to the local ways. He delights in the bountiful dinners he's served when visiting the prosperous farms of the region; he enjoys the local yarns and scary legends that fill the firelit evenings of autumn; and he comes to love the idea of marrying Katrina Van Tassel and of one day owning her father's wealth and lands. There's one problem with his plans, though: Brom Bones, the local hero, who decided long ago to wed Katrina himself. And now, to his annoyance, this pasty-faced bookworm named Ichabod is making a serious bid. This droll tale of romantic rivalry climaxes with the appearance of the Headless Horseman. The spirited narration by Glenn Close, radiant illustrations by Robert Van Nutt, and original music by Tim Story capture all the wit, fun, and shivers of this early American tale. In 1988 the audio was honored with a Grammy nomination in the category of best recording for children.

About the Author

Washington Irving is considered by many to be the father of American literature. He died in 1859.

Michael Garland has made an indelible mark on the world of children's literature. His rich,colorful artwork captures the flavor of Washington Irving's classic The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, Elizabeth Friedrich's Leah's Pony, Corinne Demas Bliss's Electra and the Charlotte Russe, and Ann Tompert's Saint Patrick and Saint Nicholas.

Mr. Garland wrote and illustrated Angel Cat, Dinner at Magritte's, Circus Girl, and My Cousin Katie, which was named an ALA Booklist Editors' Choice and a NCSS-CBC Notable Childrens Trade Book in the field of social studies. One of his paintings from The Legend of Sleepy Hollow was included in the 1992 Society of Illustrators' Annual Show, and the entire book was selected for the organization's "Original Art of Children's Books" exhibit also in 1992.

Mr. Garland was awarded Certificates of Merit in the Society of Illustrators' Annual Shows from 1981-1988 and in 1990-1992. A native New Yorker, Michael Garland earned a bachelor of fine arts degree from the Pratt Institute in 1974. An avid landscape painter in his leisure time, Mr. Garland lives with his wife and three children in Patterson, New York, not far from the scene of Washington Irving's great American folktale.

I honestly loved this book. It captures the moment and it's like putting that moment in front of you. The only problem was that it was not a chapter book/novel. I was expecting to be reading it for the next few days, however, it's only forty something pages. I still HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Legend Of Sleepy Hollow has always been, and always will be, my favorite story. The rich imagery, Irving's incredible writing style, the unforgetable character of Ichabod Crane and the timeless image of him being chased by the Headless Horseman...simply the best!

Ever since I was a kid, 'The Legend Of Sleepy Hollow' has been my all-time favorite story. It has stood the test of time and will continue to enthrall readers for generations to come. The image of the Headless Horseman chasing Ichabod Crane through the spooky forests of Sleepy Hollow...it just doesn't get any better than this! A must-have for any Halloween get-together, or for anyone who just enjoys great literature!

Walked in. He had a raven on his shoulder, and a black sword on his back. (In case you are wondering, this character looks and acts like Karl from 'the law of talos' on youtube. However, for the purpose of this rp, he is an ordinary human, rather than the statue that he is in the youtube thing.)

He wiped the brow from his face as he scurried up a tree in silence. Luke hugged his knees, and leaned against the tree, slowly exhaling. He gripped his guns, and closed his eyes, daring not to experience this. Too much has happened. This was his home. He didn't want to believe it

She stepped out of the barren forest but quickly stepped back in after hearing foot steps. She climbed the tree carfully and waited at the top...

The 18-year-old girl crept through the wasteland that she used to call her home. It had been burnt down by a hoard of Statists when she was 16, two years ago, when the government had become this bad.
