'Asa's father is a canal boat captain, a man who moves goods and cargo on a barge pulled by mules. In this gentle story, 9-year-old Asa gets to come along for the first time because his father's mule driver has quit. Their trip is a learning experience for Asa, who helps care for the mules and steers them along the path, visiting with familiar faces along the way. Adventure comes their way in the form of a nasty storm that causes the mules to bolt from a lightning strike; then the towline breaks, and Asa's father disappears into the canal. All ends well, however, and both Asa and the reader have learned a lot about this little byway of history. A foreword explains that canals were the highways of the 19th century, on which barges carried heavier loads faster than horse-drawn wagons over land. Information on what canal boats looked like and how locks functioned is smoothly worked into the story, which is skillfully illustrated with careful, ambitious pen-and-wash drawings that use interesting perspectives to tell this story.'--Denise Wilms, Booklist. Story was inspired by the Morris Canal in Pennsylvania, which was used in the 1800s mainly to transport coal to New York and New Jersey. Keywords: juvenile, picture book, local history, Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, educational.

Very Good. 
Hardcover. Hardcover 1st English-language edition 1997 Atlantis Verlag Pro Juventute, Zurich. SIGNED by the artist on title page. Glossy picture cover-- NO DUSTJACKET. Very clean; pages bright. Slight wiggle to spine; minor wear to cover corners. Ca. 32 pages (pages not numbered); full-page color plates. Language: English (translated from the German by Patricia Ranzi-Gedey). Large-format book ca. 9.5 x 12.5 inches. NOTE: Large format-- cannot ship outside U.S. via Flat-Rate envelope; may require additional international postage. Manser is a Swiss self-taught artist who worked as a confectioner / baker, painting in his spare time. His paintings of memories of life on the farm in the Alpine countryside of Switzerland came to the attention of experts on primitive and naive folk art. His 1985 picture book 'Little Albert' was a recreation of his Appenzeller boyhood. 'Barbara' makes reference to that book. Set in the present, it tells the story of a little girl's summertime vacation in the Alps. She owns and loves the 'Little Albert' book and can't wait to compare the story to real experience. Manser's illustrations are teeming with vivid, colorful details of Swiss mountain country life. The busy citizens herd and milk goats, make cheese, go hiking, dance, play music, build bonfires, and play in summer snow. The text is derived from informal conversations with the artist. For ages ca. 3-up.

Brundibar, Kushner, Tony; Sendak, Maurice (illustrator)
16 Brundibar Kushner, Tony; Sendak, Maurice (illustrator)
Very Good. 
Hardcover. 1st edition hardcover with dustjacket 2003 Michael Di Capua Books / Hyperion. Light store shelfwear to jacket. Superclean; no marks; pages bright; binding tight; never read. Ca. 52 pages (pages not numbered); color illustrations. Language: English. For ages ca. 4-up; adult help recommended. 'A picture book based on a 1938 Czech opera, originally performed by the children of Terezin. A brother and sister try to get milk for their sick mother. They sing for coins in the town square, but Brundibar the organ grinder drowns out their words with his teeth-chattery bone-rattley horrible song. Pepicek and Aninku then join voices with 300 other children and earn enough coins to fill their soon-to-be-milkbucket. The playful language, with occasional rhyme and alliteration, is a perfect match for Sendak's spirited young heroes. The illustrations reflect varied undertones of a powerful story that works on different levels, including many references to the Holocaust. Scenes in the town show rich adults ignoring the desperate siblings, while other children also suffer from hunger. A banner matches a sign that covered the gates of Auschwitz, and several townsfolk wear yellow Stars of David. Brundibar vaguely resembles Hitler, particularly in one scene where he appears, huge and purple faced, with a clenched fist. A wordless spread showing grieving parents is poignant in itself, but tragic within the Holocaust context. Most kids won't get the literal references, but will respond directly to the images of the ominous, yet hopeful world depicted. In the end everyone sings triumphantly that the wicked never win and our friends make us strong, but a final scribbled message from Brundibar promises that he'll be back. This is an ambitious picture book that succeeds both as a simple children's story and as a compelling statement against tyranny.'--Steven Engelfried, School Library Journal. Keywords: juvenile, children, picture book, concentration camp, World War II, Jewish.

20 Curse in Reverse Coppinger, Tom; Zimmer, Dirk (illustrator)
0689830963 / 9780689830969 New. 
Hardcover. Brand-new, 1st edition hardcover with dustjacket published 2003 by Atheneum. Gift-giving condition: superclean; no marks; pages bright; binding tight; unread. Only a hint of store shelfwear to jacket. 29 pages (pages not numbered); color illustrations. Language: English. For ages ca. 4-8. NOTE: Large format-- cannot ship outside U.S. via Flat-Rate envelope; may require additional international postage. 'After a long journey, the witch Agnezza seeks shelter in a snowy forest village. The first two doors she tries belong to wealthy misers who send her away with insults. In return, Agnezza delivers a curse (and a sizable gob of spit) at each doorstep. Then a childless couple, the Tretters, offer her dinner and their only bed for the night. When Agnezza returns their kindness with the Curse of the one-armed man, they are naturally puzzled. Later, Mrs. Tretter gives birth, and as Mr. Tretter carries out his household chores with his one free arm, baby on hip, the couple realizes the hidden gift in Agnezza's spell. In his picture-book debut, Coppinger borrows many familiar folktale elements and fashions them into a humorous story filled with gleeful surprises. He writes with lively dramatic language that is just right for read-alouds, while Zimmer's textured ink-and-watercolor illustrations capture the humor and farce in the delightfully off-kilter winter scenes and visages of the motley villagers. A good, light choice for enlivening a winter story hour.'--Gillian Engberg, Booklist.
