Comments Ma vallée

  1. I ve written a lot about the state of translated children s books in America lately It is what it is Generally speaking, Americans can be a bit cagey when it comes to literature for kids from other countries Either we re weirded out by the art, or the storyline doesn t meet our expectations It s so peculiar So odd So outlandish So the fact that Archipelago Books deemed 2017 the year to debut their new imprint Elsewhere Editions devoted to translating imaginative works of children s literature f [...]


  2. Poochie Blue is a twim and lives with his family in the House Tree on the Blue Cliffs Along the book Poochie Blue shows the reader the valley, his house and family, and many fantastic stories about the place There is not really a plot Nothing is really going on The text is that description Some ideas are very funny, my favorite being the magic puddle , which is actually a door you can go in and then come out through any of the other of the puddles The magic puddle looks just like the rest, and y [...]


  3. A gorgeous and whimsical children s book that held my restless 21 month old son under its spell, page after page The illustrations are strange, wonderful, spellbinding The book is gigantic, adding to the feeling of literally falling into its world A real beauty and a new imprint by Archipelago Books that will enchant young readers and collectors.


  4. I received a copy of this title from the publisher via Netgalley.Ten Second Synopsis A whimsical journey into a fantasy woodland world.It s not a bad book by any means, just one in which I could not find a point of purchase from which to engage with the story.I have a rather sketchy relationship with books translated from the French, admittedly This book is aimed at around about the 6 to 10 age group, with large pictures surrounded by short paragraphs of text There is no coherent overall story, [...]


  5. Eh, not my bag The art s beautiful and I love the huge trim size it feels really SUBSTANTIAL but I didn t care a whit about the story and wasn t sucked in by the art, as much as I admired it intellectually In general, I tend not to care much about animal protagonists this is just me though hm, I m fine with animals when they re REALLY REALLY HUMAN and soulful and engaged in an emotional struggle against their own flawske the Hobans Frances And I found the whole narrative not gripping, with too m [...]



  6. Whenever you see Translated from on the front of a picture book, you know things are going to get weird This book lives up to that expectation A strange story encyclopedia collection of short stories about Twims, an imaginary species of creatures that look weasel ish There s no order to the stories, and they re all fairly strange The endings are usually abrupt and nonsensical, but the illustrations are great It reminds me of a esoteric version of David the Gnome Kids will probably like this, as [...]


  7. An original picture book done in chapters, describing life in My Valley Fun language, with unexpected phrases such as House Tree instead of Tree House unexpected characters, such as the Children Who Fell From the Sky and interesting places in the valley, such as the Theater of Hissy Fits.Detailed illustrations are barely contained on hugely oversized pages.Youngsters could create stories describing their own Valley of life.


  8. This imaginative picture book tells the story of the Twims, a type of creature that lives in a specific valley One Twims narrates the book, explaining life in the valley He lives in a House Tree up on the cliffs He has many siblings, a mother and a father and two sets of grandparents He plays games in the woods, watches all sorts of weather arrive, including once children falling from a house picked up by a hurricane Twims use theater to get over feeling angry, have a cemetery with grave markers [...]


  9. The pictures really are pretty the one showing a cutaway view of the tree the Twims family lives in would have rocked my 8 year old world but this was just entirely too trippy for me I had trouble following the jumpiness of the little stories, there was waaaay too little explanation exposition for my taste Most of the other reviewers seem really to have liked it though


  10. Poetic, philosophical and utterly original in its world building unlike anything you or your child has seen A must have for any library.


  11. A completely inconsequential pile of oddness Yes, the artwork is fine, but the text is just fractured sections of script, narrative free details of the most bizarre kind Frustrating.


  12. This is a very quirky picture book Not for everyone, but I have a feeling that some children will really engage with it.




  13. This large format picture book has colorful detailed illustrations of exotic creatures in a magical land and a text describing the everyday lives of the creatures Ages 4 8


  14. My Valley is the home of the Twims little, furry, honey bear like critters, who live in a house tree This house tree is located on a ridge of the most beautiful valley Poochie Blue is our tour guide He is part of a large extended family with four brothers, four sisters, parents, and two sets of grandparents all living in the family house tree After a tour of his house tree cavernous, comfortable, and often strange Poochie Blue takes us on a yearlong tour of My Valley.Children who have the opport [...]


  15. Imaginative book about the Twims a kind of creature that is kind of like a little bear with a tail or squirrel or rodent In this tale, Poochie Blue, a Twim, tells you about his valley and family There s lots to look at in the large detailed illustrations in this amusing book that is translated from French.



  16. This is an absolutely beautiful book the prose cleverly translated by Alyson Waters and illustrations combine to create a beguiling world in which to totally immerse yourself.The English translation in print is due to be published in March 2017, I m definitely going to wait to buy that for a birthday gift 8 year old grandson rather than the digital version I m almost exclusively digital now but this is a book that needs to be held for long and short periods while a child s imagination soars Fans [...]


  17. I received this arc from Netgalley for an honest review.While the illustrations in this book are simply amazing, I am not sure what the story is about I understand it is about some woodland creatures, but I m not sure that it has a beginning or and end It almost felt informational, about a fiction character.


  18. The illustrations are beautiful I loved the image of the tree, with all the descriptions, and the map This is a world to get lost in.





  19. Charming I can see a child writing and drawing stories based on this highly detailed, delightful, magical place and its inhabitants.
