Reviews - What do customers think about Magic Raincoat?
A BOOK AND AN ARTWORK! Nov 20, 2007
The plot comes alive through Benatova's magical illustrations, which as if enact the story before the reader's eyes. This is one of my favorite children's books and I recommend it wholeheartedly to kids and adults alike, as it tells a wonderful story, stimulates the imagination, and cultivates aesthetic appreciation.
Remarkable Story Apr 15, 2007
This is a sweet and touching children's story. I bought one for my daughter, but my other daughter wanted one as well, so I ended up buying two! I recommend the book, though be prepared to buy more than one if you've more than one kid!
exquisite Apr 6, 2007
"The Magic Raincoat" plunges the reader headlong with Emily into a dreamscape of colour and teasing detail. Each page is a mesmerizing world constructed piece by piece. I can't speak for children, but this adult would like to pay homage to the talent and meticulousness of illustrator Benatova.
My son loves this book Apr 3, 2007
My 3 year old boy loves this book - as do I! It is a pleasure for both parents and children to read. The illustrations are beautiful, but also very child-freindly, like a child's dream illustrated. The story is original, bringing a new twist to an old moral ("be careful what you wish for") which is a great lesson for all young children!
Wishes to Build Dreams On. . . Mar 25, 2007
If wishes were fishes, we might all be under water. Yet this lovely book inspires with a timeless message that presents endless possibilities for and with your child. Prepare to be delighted by the drawings (what a gifted artist!) that make you want to reach into the page and hug them. Each page is rich with meaning, color, texture, sophistication, and charm. Truly wishes to build dreams on.
