"Little Elliot, Big Family" Reviews
Рисунките са майсторски - сами по себе си красиви и детайлни, за дълго взиране и обсъждане, но и умело разказващи, с много смени в настроението и ъгъла, с внимателно обмислена роля в цялостната история - някъде по-просторни и монотонни, другаде по-пищни и динамични. Страшно ми хареса.
Elliot, the little polka-dotted elephant whose story began in Little Elliot, Big City , returns in this second picture-book devoted to his adventures. Happily living with his new friend Mouse, whom he met in the preceding tale, Elliot becomes disconsolate when Mouse leaves for a family reunion, and he once again finds himself alone. With a roommate who has parents, grandparents, 15 brothers, 19 sisters, 25 aunts, 27 uncles, and 147 cousins, Elliot's own family-less state seems twice as lonely. Wandering the city, he sees families of all kinds, but none for him. Even a visit to the cinema reminds him of his solitude. And then, walking home, he encounters Mouse, and is included in a most unexpected family (and family event)...
Like its predecessor, Little Elliot, Big Family is a charming book, one which features beautiful artwork and an engaging tale of finding family in unlikely places. I appreciated the view offered of a vintage 1940s-style New York City, and the diverse families that Elliot encounters in his wanderings. Mike Curato's artwork continues to remind me a bit of Chris Van Allsburg, which is high praise indeed, coming from me. The story offers a gentle lesson in the importance of family, the diversity of families (including the human family), and the need at times to find family in non-traditional ways. I am delighted that there is a forthcoming Little Elliot book, Little Elliot, Big Fun , due out later this year. I will definitely be picking up a copy!
Вижте кой ни маха с днес с петнистото си хоботче. Елиът, малкото слонче с голямо сърце! Дело на талантливия илюстратор Майк Кюрито, поредицата за Малкия Елиът си е спечелила много почитатели по целия свят. А ето, че спечели и нас с книжката „Малкият Елиът и голямото семейство” (изд. „Прозорец”)
Elliot and Mouse are still room-mates in the city, but Mouse has a big family reunion coming up, so Elliot makes plans to do things on his own for the day. However, he misses his friend and the family he doesn't know. But just when it looks like he's going to have a lonely day, Mouse shows up, realizing that his family reunion was missing someone. Again, Mr. Curato manages to tell a great tale of friendship and family who isn't blood, but belong just the same. Also a good reminder for adults and kids not to take those friends for granted. No content issues.
Безкрайно нежна, мила, добра книжка - трогателна история, емоционална, разкошни внушителни картинки, сладурска, романтична, а героите са такива душички!! Много, много ми хареса и благодаря на Стефан, че насочи вниманието ми! Прекрасна изненада на българския пазар! Препоръчвам и аз!
These Little Elliot titles seem like they should be just too sweet and not quite work. But instead, they are absolutely sweet and completely capture the reader. No overly sugary after taste. Just big breath, full heart moments. Well done Mike Curato, you have something amazing figured out.
