  • If there was ever a book to substantiate the argument for physical books as opposed to ebooks, this is it The texture and art work could never be replicated online A joy to touch, the visual appeal is amazing The only negative is that it ends too soon.


  • What a bizarre little book I found in the kids section of my local library Its a story of a boy who was mean and hurt living things and trees and stuff So for punishment the faries of the forest put him in a old oak tree His parents thought he was lost and left and he was alone until another family moved in and there was a girl his age They tried to take the girl too but the boy fought back There is thin papers in between it all and beautiful but different illustrations It s a book of morals Lit [...]



  • Once upon a time there were two parents who had only one child, a boy, but he was rather lonely since his parents were too busy to pay attention to him Out of boredom the little boy would trample over flowers, tear the limbs off of barks, carve his initials into tree trunks, chase away forest animals, and even set an oak tree on fire Unbeknownst to him, this was a druidic tree, a scared tree which happened to be a passageway to the Kingdom of Faerie, and his transgression did not go unnoticed am [...]


  • From BooklistThe attention paid to this book s design is apparent right from the cover, with elegant, wispy lines set against smooth wood grains and textured bark Inside, a spare, lightly haunting narrative tells a fairy tale like story of a lonely boy whose play in the woods was insensitive and cruel He trampled flowers He tore limbs off trees and carved his initials into their trunks A group of fairies, not especially nice themselves, trap him inside an ancient Druidic Oak, where the boy watch [...]


  • Well, that was certainly disappointing The hardcover is gorgeous quality, both in literal materials and in the artwork gracing it That s the best part of the book the cover.The story is dull, distant, and cold in its telling The tissue like insert art is lackluster I ve had wide eyed delight while tuning the pages of those huge wallpaper sample books in old home decorating supply stores.The artist s sketches continue to be ethereal and yet scientific looking inside the book, just as lovely as t [...]


  • This is a very intriguing story about faeries punishing a boy for his cruelty, with one faerie orchestrating an opportunity for redemption The pencil drawings are extremely delicate and beautiful, while the translucent tyvek like pages interspersed between the text are simply gorgeous,and do much to draw the reader into the magical faerie world,casting a sort of mist on the story While I read, I felt as if I was in another place, which I think was the intent There s also texture to the cover The [...]





  • Lovely illustrations and interesting color overlays of patterns from nature, but the story was a bit too sad and unresolved.



  • Beautiful illustrations The book is lovely But the story is disturbing and I won t be reading it to my daughter It would have given me nightmares as a child.
