Best Book, Det Er Ganske Vist By Hans Christian Andersen This Is Very Good And Becomes The Main Topic To Read, The Readers Are Very Takjup And Always Take Inspiration From The Contents Of The Book Det Er Ganske Vist , Essay By Hans Christian Andersen Is Now On Our Website And You Can Download It By Register What Are You Waiting For Please Read And Make A Refission For You Lots of birds It s Perfectly True, illustrated by Janet Stevens.Hans Christian Andersen s tale of gossip run wild is adapted and illustrated here by Janet Stevens, whose other projects in this vein includeThe Princess and the PeaandThe Emperor s New ClothesAn amusing story of an innocent remark that grows and distorted, as it is overheard and repeated by a string of different birds, it reminded me a bit of the game of telephone.Stevens illustrated are humorous, with expressive bird faces communicating outrage and shock, and her narrative has an appealing, informal feeling to it All in all, an engaging edition of one of Andersen s lesser known tales, and that could be read together with For Sure For Sure , another picture book retelling of the same tale, in a somewhat different style Thank you Krista, for recommending this one I m usually pretty liberal about what kids can and can t read and I d hate to be one of those people who needs to sanitize fairy tales, but even I thought this book was a bit much Suicidal hens who kill themselves over roosters pictures of chickens lying in blood Great story, with a lot of nuance The gist of it is that a small story gets blown out of proportion Unfortunately, the main idea of the story is lost between the grisly details I think this would be a great conversation piece for middle school, but I don t know that smaller children would get it The language is also a bit much, as the roosters judge the hen s choices and determining if the hens are staying respectable Thanks for reminding me that gender relations have indeed changed since 1988. This is a retelling by Janet Stevens of a Hans Christian Andersen tale, about how gossip can get out of hand It s like that game where you whisper something in the ear of one person, who whispers it into the ear of the next person, etc., etc., until the last person, by which time the story has been completely changed due to mis hearings, misunderstandings, and embellishments I love Janet Stevens illustrations she draws great chickens The pools of blood around the dead bodies at the end was a bit much, though.

L s mit review her This book is done in a square orientation, unlike the common portrait or landscape orientations The illustrations are unrealistic and kind of gory I find it a little disturbing but it might attract some younger readers who enjoy violent things The borders that go around the illustrations don t restrict the illustrations themselves because some of the illustrations bleed out of the border I really like this affect. For Sure For Sure , retold by Mus White, illustrated by Stefan CzerneckiOriginally written in 1852, Hans Christian Andersen s Der er ganske visthas often been translated atIt s Perfectly True , orIt s Absolutely TrueThis 2004 retelling by Mus White, accompanied by Stefan Czernecki s bold acrylic illustrations, takes a non literal approach, rendering the title For Sure For Sure , a reference to the refrain of the many scandalized birds to be found in the story.A cautionary tale about the power of gossip, it follows the transformation of a simple event a respectable hen loses a feather, and comments that she looks better without it into an outrageous tale involving five hens who pluck themselves naked and fight to the death, all for the love of a rooster An amusing story although by no means one of Andersen s best that is well told and well illustrated in this adaptation The cartoon like illustrations, with their vivid colors, are the perfect complement to the humor of the tale. The premise behind it is good, but I didn t care for the execution Everyone learns how gossip can get out of hand and a story gets blown out of proportion I didn t really think the story they picked was one easily exaggerated It didn t really make sense what they said or how they reacted A very good idea just not carried out in a way that will connect with children.
