Item description

Genesis (Library Binding) by Ed Young (Editor) Reading level: Ages 4-8 Library Binding: 32 pages Publisher: Harpercollins (February 1997) Language: English ISBN: 0060253576 Product Dimensions: 0.5 x 7.8 x 11.5 inches Shipping Weight: 13.60 ounces List Price: 16.89 From School Library Journal Grade 3 Up. Young's fans will welcome this collection of stunning abstract meditations on the Creation. On each right-hand page, areas of soft-textured, deep-hued color emerge from a black background; text is printed in white on an all-black facing page. Moving over the sensuous expanse of brilliant color, the eye begins to pick out a wing, an ear, a fin, a tusk. The forms are not amorphous, but they are suggested rather than delineated. As the Creation proceeds at its stately King James pace, the figures become more detailed, and shape begins to dominate: on the final page, there is no black background at all, and the text is superimposed on the illustration. Literal-minded readers may object: creatures appear out of their biblical order (e.g., several animals can be discerned before the fifth or sixth day). Nevertheless, this is a gorgeous depiction of creative energy, as both artistic interpretation and on-going process. From Booklist Ages 5-8. Based on the King James Version of Genesis, this picture book interprets the Creation story through familiar words and impressionistic artwork. As light emerges from the darkness, so forms emerge from the pictures. These are generally animals, suddenly visible as eyes make sense of the obscure, sometimes contradictory, yet eventually meaningful shapes created with lines and shadings of colors on each page. Greater distance from the page helps in making sense of the pictures, but in any case, older children will find the pictures more meaningful than preschoolers will. In the author's note, Young comments on his interpretation and on the endpapers (not seen in galley), which feature the names of extinct and endangered animals. A distinctive vision of the Creation. From Kirkus Reviews Young (Night Visitors, 1995, etc.), with his sure elegance, exceptional take on nuance and suggestion, and the palpable luxury of his colors, creates a compelling version of the Judeo-Christian creation story. Against the stately language of the King James Genesis, Young's palette of dark jewel tones suggest and intimate the mystery and majesty of creation. A tiny light gleams in the blue- black void; on the next spread, that light cracks open the darkness as the waters and the firmament divide. A shape hints at a great serpent or animal; then animal faces peer from the grasses and bird flight from the clouds. When the earth brings forth living creatures, the shark appears under the wingspread of the eagle; man crouches, his hands clutching at the earth from whence he came. The hand of God holds myriad living shapes as the command comes to be fruitful and multiply; those forms re-form in the contours of Adam and Eve. While not for those who want a literal illustration of Genesis, this beautiful book honors the Word and the story. (Picture book. 4-8) From the Publisher By Caldecott winner Ed Young, a radiant and powerful picture book interpretation of the story of creation from the Book of Genesis. In the beginning God created heaven and earth...." The story of creation is one of the most powerful, and beautiful, in the Bible. Representative of a point of genesis, a moment in time when earth was pure and untouched and entrusted to humankind, the Book of Genesis speaks of the mystery of the earth's creation and the miracle of our existence. Caldecott winner Ed Young's powerful visual interpretation enhances that sense of mystery and wonder as he draws light, and life, from dark, in perfect concordance with the text. And with an accompanying list of many of the world's creatures, both living and extinct, included on the endpapers, Genesis also serves as a gentle reminder that the earth is ours to protect .
