Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

"This is a vivid piece of storytelling, which takes full advantage of the atmospheric Catskill setting and highlights the comic gifts of Irving's story," PW commented. "Howe good-spiritedly taps the elements of the tale that make it an American favorite." Ages 4-8.

From School Library Journal

Grade 2-5-A trip into the past to see mystifying events that occurred over 200 years ago in New York's Catskill Mountains. Occasional rumbling rolls of thunder cause one to wonder if just maybe-it all happened. Readers will be caught up in the remarkably fresh retelling of Irving's classic tale. Moses's text, while respecting the tone of the original, has a remarkable storytelling quality, highlighted by a crispness of phrase, appropriateness of the description, and clever modernizing of the language. However, what makes this edition so exciting is the joyous collection of folk-style paintings, each reflecting the artist's love of color, simplicity of character interpretation, attention to detail, and interest in history. A new generation of readers will chuckle over and rejoice in Rip's adventures in this lively visual feast.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Calla Edition, 2013. Aside from being absurdly cheap right now, this is a fine facsimile of the classic 1921 Rip Van Winkle as illustrated by N.C. Wyeth. it's a slender red hardcover, with gold-stamped spine title and front frame around a paste-down colour plate. The interior is all coated stock with colour and b&w illustrations throughout, in that comfortable spacious Wyeth style, with hand-drawn page numbers and text only on the top half of each page. While it's an inch smaller in length & width (and thinner) than the Robinson Midsummer Night's Dream, the Dulac Poe's Bells, and the Austen Hamlet, it's a worthy companion to those, and to the other great Calla volumes. This is literally the cheapest version of Irving's story on amazon, and yet it's one of the most beautiful versions of it.

Several of these other reviews are for a different version of this story. The one I am reviewing is an "All Aboard Reading" version. It is definitely written for beginning readers (1st-3rd grade)
This version is a good introduction to the classic Washington Irving story. I do not like the way Rip's wife yells at him to get to work or how Rip is only "maybe...a little" sad when we finds out that his wife has died after his long sleep. Neither Rip nor his wife were the most exemplary characters! :-)
Still, that is the way the story was written and can be a good launch into a talk about character.

Format: Hardcover
This is the original text of Rip Van Winkle by Washington Irving. There are 34 of Rackham's paintings used throughout the text. I do not find the reading level suitable for 4 to 8 year olds. Reading level is about 8th grade (14 years old). Example: "The great error in Rip's composition was an insuperable aversion to all kinds of profitable labour. It could not be from the want of assiduity or perseverance..." This is not for 4 to 8 year olds. Illustrations enhance this classic in American literature.
