Reviews - What do customers think about Ignacio's Chair?

Beautiful!  Nov 10, 2002
This is a very beautiful book! The illustrations are breathtakingly lovely, and the story is warmly touching -- we follow a wonderful hand-carved chair as it travels through history, attended by the shade of the gentle monk who carved it. A piquant footnote is the addition of a timeline that stretches page by page, from 1492 all the way to 2001, running parallel the chair's adventures.
As a grandmother and sometime schoolteacher, I know that some picture books stay in our memories all our lives: Tenniel's evocative drawings for "Alice," John Neil's magical portraits in the Oz books, the d'Aulaires' magnificent drawings in "Abraham Lincoln." The pictures in "Ignacio's Chair" belong in that company.
FABULOUS  Nov 5, 2002
When I first heard about this book, I wondered who would be interested in a story about a chair. After reading it, I can recommend that every reader from age 9 onup should spend a little lap time with this one. The story weaves a journey through time, with a progression that is believable and easy to follow. The illustrations offer a penetrating landscape, and a poignancy that could almost make this a wordless book. This one is a great buy for boys, girls, grownups-- the whole family. --A rare find and a refeshing tilt on history and bookmaking. I'll be buying this book for the holidays.
