Lumina: A Story for the Dark Time of the Year by Brigitte Weninger, Anthea Bell, Julie Wintz-Litty (Illustrator) Reading level: Ages 4-8 Hardcover: 36 pages Publisher: North South Books (November, 1997) Language: English ISBN: 155858790X Product Dimensions: 0.5 x 9.0 x 11.5 inches Shipping Weight: 14.4 ounces. List Price:15.95 From School Library Journal Kindergarten-Grade 2. Lumina, a young orphan, wanders the countryside trying to survive. Her only possession is a small lantern that her mother had given to her. When the village people chase her away, she walks through the forest in search of a place to sleep. An icy wind blows out her lamp and she's left in darkness. An owl leads her to the road, where she meets a boy who relights her lantern and takes her home. Although the writing in this Swiss import is adequate, the plot, complete with a happy ending, is predictable and unexciting. However, Wintz-Litty's realistic watercolor illustrations enliven and enhance the text, offering evocative views of a country village, an intimidating moonlit forest, and a cozy and welcoming farmhouse. A quiet picture book, suitable for reading aloud or sharing individually From Kirkus Reviews Wintz-Litty's watercolors, with their intimate nighttime village scenes and wild landscapes, are splendidly bleak as poor Lumina's sad story unfolds: She is parentless, homeless, hungry, and shunned by her countryfolk--Go away, little beggar girl!''- -as the snowballs rain down on her head. She has the clothes on her back and from her mother, a lantern, but it--the sum total of her security and warmth--is cruelly extinguished by a gust of wind. A pack of wolves menace her, an old owl provides guidance, and suddenly Lumina spies a light in the distance. She is invited home for Christmas Eve supper and is taken into a family's warm embrace as a new member of the household. After so many pages of pure agony, readers will be dazed by and suspicious of this particular turn of events--at least The Little Match Girl delivers a good cry. (Picture book. 5-9) -- Language Notes Text: English (translation) Original Language: German Card catalog description Shivering in the forest from the bitter cold, an orphan girl clings to a tiny lantern until the light blows out and she must beg help from a kind old owl.
