Bravo Yet Again
What a fabulous new addition to the Faceted Press inventory, and a third offering in this series. Katie Mullaly and Toby Allen continue to team up to create what these writers feel is their most inspired offering yet. Land of I Am shouts to the world about the toughest concept for any of us; Who am I? Handling this complex challenge is the eloquent prose and rhymes of writer Mullaly, constantly balancing the best word selection with generous space apportionment, not an achievement for the faint of heart.
Anyone who thinks it is an easy matter to produce such a memorable series of books such as these two collaborators have done must be from another planet. Clearly, both the original and robust illustrations from Toby Allen, married with the strong and musical verse of Mullaly, result in an end product both pleasing to the eye and compelling to adult and child alike.
Our youngest grandchildren literally fought for positioning and held their breaths until our reading session began on the newest series treat, a sure fire sign the effort invested by this dynamic creative team is more than worth it for the level of pleasure given to the children. Bravo and encore, encore!
The vibrant illustrations offer an explosion of tantalizing rich and succulent forms and colors for children to play and delight in
In this delightful book, Katie Mullaly offers children a unique opportunity to journey through the twists and turns of life, while masterfully leading them to their own inner sense of “I AM.” The vibrant illustrations offer an explosion of tantalizing rich and succulent forms and colors for children to play and delight in, as they journey down a charming path of self discovery. This book is sure to enrich the lives of children everywhere, as they discover their own unique strengths and inner sense of well being. Katie’s awe-inspiring work coupled with her innate ability to understand the needs of children, is simply sublime.
Powerful message, beautiful illustrations - must have book!
The "Land of..." series of books is nothing short of spectacular. Created for children and adults alike, the reminder to be conscious of the labels we (and others) give ourselves is a beautiful sentiment anyone, at any age, can connect with. The beautiful Illustrations complement the narrative perfectly. I have purchased these books for a number of people and receive wonderful feedback every time!
I loved both the 2 previous books
I loved both the 2 previous books! The storytelling, the rhymes, the moral and obviously the illustrations are gorgeous!
I live in Italy and right now I am still waiting for the actual book to get here, but I enjoyed the PDF version and it's beautiful! And the quality of the printing and paper is amazing!
Email note to us from same reviewer: I am a soon to be educator in Italy and I absolutely love the rhymes, content, moral and illustrations of this series! I am now the proud owner of all 3 books and I can not recommend them enough (both for children and adults).
One of her best
I can't get enough of Katie Mullaly's books. Beautiful illustrations paired with incredibly creative, values-driven, and well written stories. 'I am' is one of her best!
