Horn Book Review

These gratuitous, obviously market-driven picture book editions of classic Harper I Can Read Books are nicely produced but all wrong. The texts were written for newly independent readers and suited the easy-reader genre perfectly (some were even among the genre's earliest manifestations); as picture books, they sound stilted. In some cases, the art has been blown up, creating a muddy look. Why mess with perfection? Stick with the original versions. From HORN BOOK Fall 1999, (c) Copyright 2010.
