ALICE YAZZIE'S YEAR

By Maher, Ramona

Toronto: Tricycle Press. Very Good in Very Good dust jacket. 2003. First Edition. Hardcover. 1582460809 . Ex-library book, but still in very nice condition - overall wear is very light. Gorgeous illustrations throughout. Usual ex-library markings, including laminated cover and front and spine sticker. ; ; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall; From Booklist: Gr. 3-6. "The snow slowed the world, the Navajo world, " begins this picture book for older readers, originally published in 1977, which has been reissued with new illustrations. Told in verse, it follows 11-year-old Alice Yazzie through 12 months on the reservation, where she lives with her grandfather. The spare, atmospheric poetry (one poem for each month) vividly describes the landscape and Alice's activities, often with startling intimacy. At times, Alice's perspective is political (she speaks out against Columbus in school) ; at other times it is lyrical (lightning is "ghosts chasing their tails"). Begay's paintings, impressionistic dabs and swirls of brilliant color, sometimes muddy faces and expressions, but like the words, the wild patterns and hues leave room for imaginations to fill in the spaces....

Harper Collins. Very Good with no dust jacket. 2001. First Edition. Hardcover. 0064408647 . Light wear, a little bumping to cover edges, light soiling outer edge of pages, interior unmarked. Publisher's Note: Dear Reader, If you have just picked up this particular book, then it is not too late to put it back down. Like the previous books in A Series of Unfortunate Events, there is nothing to be found in these pages but misery, despair, and discomfort, and you still have time to choose something else to read. Within the chapters of this story, Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire encounter a darkened staircase, a red herring, some friends in a dire situation, three mysterious initials, a liar with an evil scheme, a secret passageway, and parsley soda. I have sworn to write down these tales of the Baudelaire orphans so the general public will know each terrible thing that has happened to them, but if you decide to read something else instead, you will save yourself from a heapful of horror and woe. With all due respect, Lemony Snicket (350-noto) ; ; 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall .
