Reviews - What do customers think about The Grasshopper's Secret: A Magical Tale?

the grasshopper's secret  Apr 1, 2003
The Grasshopper's Secret allures both children and adults with its unique formulation of fantasy intermixing with reality. Readers are indulged in their timeless desire for a magical world; an escape from mundane and practical lives. However, instead of merely providing an escape, Stendhal brings the possibility of weaving a little bit of that magic into reality.
Our heroine is Zelda, an angry young girl who is reluctantly part of a family who has just taken in an orphaned, European boy named Kidcou, short for Kid Courage. We are taken along with Zelda as Kidcou's initially average looking grasshopper takes her on a dreamlike trip through Kidcou's tumultuous past. There, she learns to understand people and life enough for her to grow and develop her character and her relationships with people around her. The value in Zelda's journey lies in the fact that she is not passively at the mercy of magical elements but is able to use those elements through self-determination to help others and ultimately, herself.
A Book For All  Mar 6, 2002
This 'magical tale' is not a children's book, yet similar to Harry Potter, both adults and children alike will enjoy it.
