“Three samurai cats: a story from Japan” retold by Eric A. Kimmel and illustrated by Mordicai Gerstein

“In this energetic story set in medieval Japan, a nasty rat has invaded the castle of a canine lord, and it will take a trio of fighting samurai cats before he’s defeated. Humourous, finely detailed pen-an-ink illustrations bring this timeless tale to life.”

October storytelling around the book:

“Gershon’s monster” by Eric A. Kimmel and Jon J. Muth

Saturday, October 24th 2009 at 12 p.m. (Noon)

Gershon Monster

“The author’s note explains the relationship of the story to the Jewish New Year theme of repentance. Muth’s jacket/cover sets up the ethical struggle. A properly bearded Gershon, all in black, drags a huge sack down a deserted beach, a bag crawling with cavorting little black demons. Full page, naturalistic watercolors depict Gershon’s activities and moods as he goes about his selfish business. As the children play on the beach, the frightening waterborne monster is effectively thrust into our faces before we reach the compassionate blue sky of the end.”

From Barnes & Noble.
