More About Washington Irving
Washington Irving, one of the first American authors to earn his living from writing, was born in 1783 and died in 1859.
Painting is as much a part of the Moses family tradition as the family homestead in Eagle Bridge, New York. There Will Moses has painted since he was a little boy, learning firsthand from his grandfather, folk artist Forrest Moses, who learned from his mother, Anna Mary Robertson Moses, better known as Grandma Moses. Developing his own folk style, Will has become an internationally beloved artist in his own right, his work displayed in collections throughout the world, including that of the White House. His folk art can also be found in such books as The Night Before Christmas, Will Moses' Mother Goose, and Mary and Her Little Lamb.
Washington Irving lived in Eagle Bridge, in the state of New York. Washington Irving was born in 1783 and died in 1859.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Legend of Sleepy Hollow / Rip Van Winkle (Dodo Press)?
Good Version for Kids Sep 1, 2008
This book is a good version to read to kids. The language is basic enough for kids to follow the plot. I plan on using it as a lesson on legends around Halloween time for my fourth grade students.
One Wild Ride Jul 20, 2008
The cover of this book is beautiful. Most books these days come with dust jackets and dull covers underneath. Sleepy Hollow comes with a clear dust jacket and beautiful art underneath. Totally worth the price of admission alone. The first story, Sleepy Hollow, follows very closely the Disney version. There are a few hints as to how the Johnny Depp version came about. After Sleepy Hollow follow other short stories. Mostly ghost stories some with very cleaver twists at the end. The twists make this book somewhat appropriate for younger children. Still recommend a once over from adult first before reading to youngster. Then the book turns to one story with about five sequels. These stories did not seem to match the quality of the previous stories. Actually on the boring side. That is why I rated this book four stars out of five.
At least Amazon filled this order, unlike last year. Dec 14, 2007
I give my neices and nephews storybooks each year for Christmas. Last year, I ordered all the books in September and this site filled most of the order, but kept delaying several of the books. Christmas came and went, and I had to give some of the kids candy and promises that their books would come later. It took 12 months, until September of this year, when this site admitted they could never fill the order. So, this year, I tried hard to find the books in other places, but unfortunately, I had to order a few from this site. Despite my low expectations, the books showed up on time.
For Older Readers Dec 6, 2007
The Legend of Sleepy Hollow is a fascinating story, but I purchased it for an eleven year old, and its original presentation, i.e., use of words, and small print are difficult for someone of that young age to read and comprehend.
It is a classic story that I hope she will enjoy later on.
Mr. Rogers meets Saw 3 Jun 3, 2007
I will keep this quick because it was already a waste of time to read this book. They used these horrible drawing for the book that look like my little brother did them. Basically they messed up the story and made it for kids. They made it a childrens book, if that is what your looking for then it is good.
