A Nest for Celeste: A Story About Art, Inspiration, and the Meaning of Home av Henry Cole

  1. 10
    The Cricket in Times Square av George Selden (jfoster_sf)
    jfoster_sf: Both of these are sweet stories about little critters trying to find home. In Cricket in Times Square, a little cricket who lives in the country hops into a picnic basket one day and takes a nap. When he wakes up and hops out of the basket he is surprised to find himself in the middle of New York! He is befriended by a city mouse and the mouse's best friend (a cat!) and together they help the cricket get back home.… (mer)

    The Doll People av Ann M. Martin (jfoster_sf)
    jfoster_sf: Both of these books are very similar, and not just because they are both illustrated. There is adventure, themes of family and friendship, and plenty of cats to hide from! The Doll People is good for a wide range of ages, young kids would love to listen to it and older kids won't get bored.… (mer)

There is a way to write a book about animals, and the first half of this book does it. Celeste is a mouse, there are also rats, but by the second half Celeste feels more and more like a tiny person, and not in the good way. Celeste feels stiff, she feels like a stand-by character. Her problems are small and sort of thrown aside for a pocket to watch animals killed and held together or in place by wires.

The last part of the above disregarded, this book is not for kids, the way it's written, the way some scenes drag on. As a bed time story this would likely do somewhat of a job, bore kids to sleep or confuse them to exhaustion. There are parts where I, as an adult sort of went "okay, but why" too long to be immersed into it anew. I set this book down often, and disregarded it for others due to the nature of its writing.

Celeste is less a mouse and more a small fairy, and the only saving grace is I enjoy the birds in the book, and would the rats, were they there for more than fifteen pages at best.

The end result is Celeste's problems are never really truly solved by Celeste, someone else does the work or fixes the problems for her. From the first rat bullying her to the second, she is not putting any work in and at best cleans and scavenges. Not a pleasant main character to read about.

The ending itself feels temporary, and seems to say "let go" of people whereas that is an improper message. A Nest for Celeste is more about replacing friends and not forming attachments than her ever finding a nest. ( )

The overall concept of this book is cute, and I enjoyed it. However, I worry about the age-appropriateness of this book. There are certain concepts within the book that I don't feel are appropriate for the age group that the book is geared for. My son was very upset about the killing and torture of animals. I had to explain it all to him, but I didn't really know what to say about the way they were treating the birds.

My son moved on pretty quickly from these topics, though, and did enjoy the book. He loved seeing what happened to Celeste and all her animal friends. Overall, 2 and a half stars ( )

At Oakley Plantation near New Orleans, temporary home to naturalist John James Audubon and his assistant, Joseph Mason, lives a mouse named Celeste. Industrious and sweet, she forages for food in the dining room and weaves baskets of grass. Unfortunately, she is harassed by resident rats, and, attempting to assuage their hunger, she is trapped by a cat and unable to return to her nook under the floorboards. A chase brings her to Mason's room and there develops a friendship between the homesick apprentice and the little mouse. It unfolds that Audubon is no PETA advocate—he hires hunters to shoot birds so that he can pose them for his drawings. Some of the story is devoted to Celeste's persuading captured birds to pose of their own volition and so save themselves. Wonderful illustrations! ( )

This story is very sweet. This follows a sweet little mouse named Celeste that has a knack for weaving baskets. And her journey throughout the book is breath taking by both words and visuals. ( )

Fans of "A Cricket in Times Square," "Charlotte's Web" and the ilk will enjoy this story of Celeste, a thoughtful and creative mouse (she weaves baskets for collecting food) who is bullied by two rats who also live in the same plantation house. She also has the family cat to contend with. John Audubon and his young assistant Joseph are special house guests. While the two are in the area to draw and paint nature, Celeste ends up being befriended by Joseph when her home in the wall is boarded up. Timid by nature, this change in her life routine broadens her horizons and courage as she meets friendly birds, explores the outside and finds the meaning of friendship and home. A pleasant read-aloud for families with dozens of illustrations for young eyes to gaze upon while listening. Lib notes: Sensitive children may be disturbed by scenes of rats meeting their demise, birds being hunted with guns, and John Audubon sketching from dead specimens. ( )
