Over The River: A Turkey's Tale

by Lydia Maria Child. Beautiful color woodcuts by Christopher Manson illustrate. Condition: NEW c. 2005 North South large soft cover, no printing given. Content: This attractive new presentation of Child's 1844 poem,"A Boy's Thanksgiving Day" (among several early titles) offers full-page woodcuts done in a detailed and delicately primitive style. The colors are pleasingly light and clear. The childlike illustrations are in keeping with the unsophisticated nature of the rhyming text. The text is placed unobtrusively in the sky or on the snow-covered ground, and probably sings better than it reads. A piano arrangement of the familiar melody, a traditional French folk tune, is placed after the text. Child's time-honored poem successfully evokes the happy mood of a traditional and idealized family holiday gathering. Grades 2 - 5. [1 copy available]
