Recensioner

Obra de unos de los autores de cómic más aplaudidos en Gran Bretaña, Goliat hace gala de
un ingenio lleno de sensibilidad y un osado diseño al reconsiderar, reelaborar y revolucionar una historia tradicional.
Goliat de Gat no es gran guerrero. Si tiene alternativa, preferirá sin titubear ocuparse del papeleo a hacer las rondas, por no hablar del disgusto que le provoca entrar en combate. Sin embargo, por orden del rey, se verá desafiando cada día a los israelitas: ?Escoged un hombre que venga contra mí. Si venciere, nosotros seremos vuestros siervos; y si yo lo venciere, vosotros seréis nuestros siervos?.… (mer)

Summary
This modern fairy tale is about a little wooden robot and his log princess sister. Each night the princess turns back into a log. She must be woken up with the magic words “Awake, little log, awake,” but one day when the log princess is still asleep as a log she gets thrown away! Her brother, the wooden robot, goes on a journey to bring the log princess back home!

Review
This was the most adorable fairy tale! It brought a smile to my face at the end. You were rooting for the little robot the whole time trying to save his sister. I liked how instead of turning to a dark ending, it ended happily ever after. The story could almost continue with a sequel.

The illustrations made this book so magical. It was beautifully drawn and delightful.

1. Brief summary: This is a fairytale-esque book about a little wooden robot and his log princess sister. The log princess turns into a log when she falls asleep, and she can only be awoken when someone says the magic words: "Awake, little log, awake." One day, the log princess (when in log form) gets thrown away. The little wooden robot goes on a journey to find the log princess and bring her back home.
2. Awarded Best Illustrated Children's Book by The New York Times
3. Connections to classic fairy tales
4. Eye-catching, crisp, and detailed illustrations that will keep the reader/listener engaged
5. Activity idea: Creating a new story based on the adventures that the little wood robot went on that were not recounted in the book (i.e. The Giant's Key, The Family of Robbers, The Old Lady in a Bottle, The Magic Pudding, The Lonely Bear, and The Queen of the Mushrooms)

This was a Christmas 2023 gift. Totally unexpected and what a treat! I am a librarian, but one does NOT have to be this in order to have a good laugh. Filled with rifs on titles, publishing, wanna-be-authors and their angst, this is chock full of visual commentary. A great way to relax after a tiring day!
