Story of Little Black Sambo
Helen Bannerman
1929766556
September 2003
Hardcover
·
 
From School Library Journal
PreSchool-Grade 4-Despite the controversy surrounding Bannerman's racially insensitive choice of names and style of illustration for her 1899 book, Little Black Sambo perseveres in print and in the memories of adults who encountered the tale as children. Whereas Julius Lester (Sam and the Tigers [Dial, 1996]) casts Sam as a hero of the American South, and Fred Marcellino places The Story of Little Babaji (HarperCollins, 1996) in India, Bing affirms Bannerman's text and the incongruities inherent in fantasy. His African child lives in India where those infamous tigers want to eat him up-until each receives a portion of his new outfit. This is vintage Bing. The book has a weathered look, including the illusion of ripped seams and folded, yellowed pages. The danger, however, is palpable from the outset: the...


The Orphan's Tent
Tom De Haven
0689319673
Oct 1996
Hardcover
·
 
From School Library Journal
Grade 7-10?Del, a young singer-songwriter, vanishes mysteriously. Her friends eventually realize that she has been taken away by an unusual young man who calls himself Orphan Jude. It turns out that Jude needed to find another orphan like himself in order to use a magical tent, the creation of a 1930s cult leader, to transport himself to another world. When Del's friends finally find the tent, two of them travel to that world to bring her back. The premise is interesting, but it takes a while for any real excitement to develop. The author lets suspense build slowly, spending time introducing the personalities of the characters. The light romantic elements are fairly dull and predictable, detracting from the more interesting search for Del. A powerful psychic named Dead Mary makes occasional appearances to...


The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
1929766130
October 2001
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Bing (Casey at the Bat) once again brings his love of history and attention to detail to bear in Longfellow's classic poem. Even before the famous opening lines ("Listen, my children, and you shall hear/ Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere"), he is busily setting the stage with period window dressing, including faux marbled endpapers cluttered with what looks like original documents (letters that open with an authentic-looking wax seal, newspaper accounts, etc.) plus a variety of found objects, from antique spectacles to a quill pen, seamlessly integrated with the aid of 21st-century technology. He presents the text itself on pages that appear yellowed with age. Pen-and-ink drawings on scratchboard, resembling period engravings, are washed with color cool midnight blues warmed by the glow of candlelight and...


Casey at the Bat: A Ballad of the Republic Sung in the Year 1888
Ernest Lawrence Thayer
1929766009
October 2000
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Debut children's book illustrator Bing hits a home run with this handsome faux-scrapbook treatment of Thayer's immortal poem. The original verses about baseball star Casey and the ill-fated Mudville nine appeared in the San Francisco Examiner on June 3, 1888, and Bing captures the spirit of the age with pen-and-ink illustrations that look like carefully preserved newspaper clippings, complete with slightly torn and yellowed edges. He uses cross-hatching and careful shading to create the pages of The Mudville Sunday Monitor, which keenly resemble the newspaper engravings of the day. Columns of type (in historically accurate printers' fonts, as an afterword points out) run beneath each illustration to bolster the conceit. Bing also scatters other "scrapbook" items throughout, from game tickets (a bargain at 20...

"In the second edition of this landmark work, Fairburn and Brownell have again boldly linked eating disorders and obesity in one authoritative volume. It provides the clinician and the researcher, who formerly had to master two different literatures, with a splendid overview of the very latest information in 112 short, superbly crafted chapters. The first edition of this volume made history; this second edition is even better."--Albert Stunkard, M.D.
