FEATHERS by Ruth Gordon
adapted by Ruth Gordon, illustrated by Lydia Dabcovich
CHILDREN'S
Released: Sept. 30, 1993

"Dabcovich's zany cartoons re-create a little piece of history in the Eastern European setting and costumes; her loose lines perfectly capture the look of bewildered trust that's standard issue in Chelm. (Picture book. 5-8)"
The good fools of Chelm are hauled out and dusted off for still more ridicule; and, unlike many retellers of their woes, Gordon provides some edifying background on how they came to be so silly. Read full book review >
THE KEYS TO MY KINGDOM by Lydia Dabcovich
CHILDREN'S
Released: April 28, 1992

"A straightforward-looking presentation of an old favorite with a couple of nice extra dimensions. (Folklore/Picture book. 3-8)"
The traditional chant appears here in three languages (English, French, Spanish) and is given a new ``key'': artist's tools, wielded by a pigtailed young artist who can be found in each picture, following the route described and finally arranging the flowers in the basket and using her paints to depict what she has seen.
