Kort biografi

Marguerite de Angeli, née Lofft, was born in Lapeer, Michigan, and grew up in Philadelphia. At age 15, she began to sing professionally and left high school for more musical training. In 1910, she married John Dailey de Angeli, a violinist, with whom she had six children. In 1921, she began studying drawing and soon went on to illustrate first a Sunday school paper and then national magazines such as The Ladies' Home Journal. She illustrated books for authors including Dorothy Canfield Fisher. She published her own first book, Ted and Nina Go to the Grocery Store, in 1935. Over her 50-year career, she became one of the best-known and most highly-acclaimed author/illustrators in American children's literature. She won the Newbery Medal in 1950 for her most famous book, The Door in the Wall. She published her autobiography, Butter at the Old Price, in 1971.



This was the first book published for children that dealt with racism in America.

Above all this is a nice family story.
It has the luminous and sweet illustrations typical of a De Angeli book.

I found the emphasis on being clean and tidy to be heavy handed and discordant.

This is a great book for illustrating the charm of nature study and a lovely book for springtime.

I read this over three days as it is text heavy and more like a highly illustrated short story than a picture book.… (mer)

Am I allowed to find this book really boring? I ought to like it, but just could not read in with interest. Instead I skipped through to get the main ideas. I think it was just so slow paced after reading a whole bunch of rousing adventures.

I can't imagine myself recommending this book to a modern tween. It's full of old-timey language, it's overtly message-y, and where it aims to be an adventure it's pretty tame and predictable.

That said, I think it won the Newberry because the hero is a rich little boy who learns the value of hard work and bravery when a series of unfortunate events leaves him crippled and far from his parents' protection. I was sort of cheering for him in the end, but mostly I just wanted to finish the book and move on to something better.… (mer)

The kids and I read this very slowly over several months as part of one of our homeschool co-ops group read-alouds. Yes, I'll admit it, I cried at the end and the kids all laughed at me! BUT---I did see one of my boys wiping away some tears too!

Written in 1949, this sweet story tells the tale of Robin, son of nobleman Sir John de Bureford. From Amazon: "Ever since he can remember, has been told what is expected of him as the son of a nobleman. He must learn the ways of knighthood. But Robin's destiny is changed in one stroke: He falls ill and loses the use of his legs. Fearing a plague, his servants abandon him and Robin is left alone. A monk named Brother Luke rescues Robin and takes him to the hospice of St. Mark's where he is taught woodcarving and--much harder--patience and strength. Says Brother Luke, 'Thou hast only to follow the wall far enough and there will be a door in it.'"

We had several great discussions about this book---mainly what "the door in the wall" really means. We decided it referred to an opportunity---the chance to change one's course, simply by walking through an available door.

Some of the kids are already asking to reread it, so I'm thinking a second copy is in order. I know our family will cherish this story for years to come!
