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)
“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.”
