Marvin Redpost #4: Alone In His Teacher's House
Louis Sachar
0679819495
March 1994
Paperback
·
 
From Booklist
Gr. 2-4. The latest easy chapter book about Marvin starts off with the usual hilarious comedy. Marvin's teacher asks him to care for her aging dog, Waldo, while she's away for a week, and she gives Marvin the key to her house. First, there's the shock of seeing his teacher with a life outside the classroom ("Mrs. North was almost like a real person"). All his classmates envy him. He tries to act mature and responsible, not allowing his friends in Mrs. North's house, walking Waldo, coaxing Waldo to eat, even eating the dog food himself to make sure it's all right. But Waldo won't eat, and the story takes a surprising turn when the dog dies. Marvin must cope with his feelings of guilt and sadness and with his isolation as the kids at school and the substitute teacher turn on him. The farcical cover showing an embarrassed...

Book Description
Long recognized as a Chicago landmark, the Carson Pirie Scott Building also represents a milestone in the development of architecture. The last large commercial structure designed by Louis Sullivan, the Carson building reflected the culmination of the famed architect's career as a creator of tall steel buildings. In this study, Joseph Siry traces the origins of the building's design and analyzes its role in commercial, urban, and architectural history.



Marvin Redpost #3: Is He A Girl , Vol. 3
Louis Sachar
0679819487
August 1993
Paperback
·
 
From Booklist
Gr. 2-4. Marvin's not sure whether he's turning into a girl, whether he's just imagining what it's like to be a girl, or whether he's having a nightmare. Is he weird to want to play hopscotch and to wish he could wear sparkles on his clothes? As in the other easy chapter books about Marvin, Sachar writes for beginning readers with a comic simplicity that is never banal. Here he gets a lot of fun out of the identity confusion, and kids will love the frankness about grade-school gender wars and social taboos. There are no neat answers, but a lot of droll questions, including "What's normal?" The cover, with Marvin staring at a girl's reflection in the bathroom mirror, will draw kids right into the farce of the story. Hazel Rochman --This text refers to the Library Binding edition.

The Public Papers

Hardcover

From Library Journal
A Renaissance of architectural history is underway focused on Louis Sullivan, Frank Lloyd Wright's "Lieber Meister" and a pioneering proto-modern architect in his own right. Recent publications include Robert Twombly's Louis Sullivan: His Life and Work ( LJ 1/86), a careful biography; Wim de Witt's more scholarly Louis Sullivan: The Function of Ornament (Norton, 1986); and Lauren Wiengarden's Louis Sullivan: The Banks (MIT Pr., 1987). The book at hand is a valuable addition to this body of work, making available all of Sullivan's published writings in a single volume. Ranging from the late Victorian 1880s to the Academic 1920s, the collection includes numerous worthy pieces culled from obscure sources. Essential for collections strong in architecture.

Lewis and Clark

Paperback

From School Library Journal
Grade 4-6-These titles have "reluctant reader" written all over them. They are decently packaged with well-chosen and credited photographs, but the large-print, generously spaced text is written in short, choppy sentences, losing the narrative flow and the drama of history well told. In Lewis and Clark, the expedition is said to be traveling "mostly north" toward the Gates of the Mountains, after their portage of the Great Falls on the Missouri River, an egregious geographical error. Even more bizarre is the use of the term "Chopponish" for the much more commonly known Nez Perce. Expedition journals used the uncommon appellation, but there is no footnote explaining the connection. Unfortunately, in telling about the expedition's various encounters with Native Americans, Sullivan emphasizes the potentially...

Book Description
With nearly 300 drawings and 130 black-and-white illustrations, as well as previously unpublished writings, this book gives a profound new perspective on Sullivan's genius.The great American architect Louis Sullivan believed that art should reveal the creative method of nature. The greatest artist was the poet, whose understanding of nature spurred social change. In his writings, drawings, and architectural designs, Sullivan's poetic genius is apparent, as is his life objective, a rebirth of American democracy through cultural reform. This volume is both a tribute to Sullivan's poetic vision and a catalogue of all his graphic work. The authors, Robert Twombly and Narciso G. Menocal, discuss the social implications of Sullivan's theories of architecture based on nature, with visual proof of his passion in illustrations...

Sullivan's City
David Van Zanten
0393730387
Aug 2000
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Explores the idea that Louis Sullivan's ornament was central to his contribution as architect and city shaper. Early in Sullivan's career in the 1890s, when he emerged as a leading skyscraper architect of Chicago, his ornament gave scale and quality to his work. After 1900, as his career declined, it served to identify his buildings and the humane conception they encapsulated in an increasingly hostile cityscape. The brilliant pencil execution of ornament in his old age became a surrogate for the great architectural projects realized earlier. Stunning new color photographs illuminate this extended essay on how Sullivan's ornament shaped the city.
