Abarat - used book

ISBN: 061368396X

School & Library Binding, [EAN: 9780613683968], Turtleback Books: A Division of Sanval, Turtleback Books: A Division of Sanval, Book, [PU: Turtleback Books: A Division of Sanval], Turtleback Books: A Division of Sanval, In Abarat, accomplished novelist and artist Clive Barker turns his considerable talents to creating a rich fantasy world for young adults. Candy Quackenbush is growing up in Chickentown, Minnesota, yearning for more--which she finds, quite unexpectedly, when a man with eight heads appears from nowhere in the middle of the prairie, being chased by something really monstrous. And so begins Candy's epic adventure to the islands of the Abarat. Peopled by all manner of creatures, cultures, and customs, the islands should prove a fertile setting for the series that Barker is calling The Books of Abarat. Candy is an intelligent and likable heroine, and the many supporting characters are deftly drawn, both in words and in the full-color interior art that Barker has produced to give the story an extra dimension. Abarat delivers the rich and imaginative storytelling that Barker is known for, with less overt horror or violence than one of his adult novels might include. However, Candy's path isn't an easy one, and young adult readers should appreciate the hard choices she must make along the way. --Roz Genessee, 1040638, Specialty Stores, 2205888011, Custom Stores, 126072011, Books Search, 15746591, Chronicles of Narnia, 15838721, Fall into Cooking, 108718011, Features, 236551011, Deals in Books, 16310491, Podcast, 1003028, Special Features, 108719011, Stores, 116859011, The Da Vinci Code Store, 916520, Books, 937686, Literature & Fiction, 10968617011, Chapter Books & Readers, 937776, Children's Literature Guides, 937604, Historical Fiction, 15366931, Literary Criticism & Collections, 937748, Poetry, 938996, Religious Fiction, 937774, Short Story Collections, 935948, Children's Books, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books, 937688, Action & Adventure, 935948, Children's Books, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books, 937770, Fantasy & Magic, 937764, Science Fiction & Fantasy, 935948, Children's Books, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books, 960132, Adventure & Thrillers, 960118, Literature & Fiction, 959978, Teens, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books, 960038, Fantasy, 960036, Science Fiction & Fantasy, 959978, Teens, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books, 960040, Science Fiction, 960036, Science Fiction & Fantasy, 959978, Teens, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books, 15115321, Textbooks, 15305391, Architecture, 15305441, Business & Finance, 2223250011, Communication & Journalism, 15305691, Computer Science & Information Systems, 15305851, Education, 15305951, Engineering, 2223265011, English As a Second Language, 15306041, Humanities, 15306601, Law, 15306671, Medicine, 2223256011, Reference, 15306801, Sciences, 15307131, Social Sciences, 2223263011, Test Prep & Study Guides, 927726, Subjects, 916520, Books

ISBN: 061368396X

School & Library Binding, [EAN: 9780613683968], Turtleback Books: A Division of Sanval, Turtleback Books: A Division of Sanval, Book, [PU: Turtleback Books: A Division of Sanval], 2003-12-01, Turtleback Books: A Division of Sanval, With Abarat, Clive Barker begins an ambitious sequence of fantastic novels aimed at a young audience as well as his adult fans. There is as much sense of threat to the world here as there was in the horror novels with which he made his name. But the worst almost never happens here--and there is whimsy and charm along with a carefully judged and measured sense of the nightmarish. Young Cindy Quackenbush finds herself transported from the boredom of a Mid-Western chicken-packing town to the 25 islands of the Abarat--islands torn between the evil magician Christopher Carrion and the equally power-hungry rational capitalist Pixler. Each of the islands has a nature determined by an hour of the day--part of the pleasure of the book is seeing how Barker works this conceit out as Cindy travels from peril to peril. The book is literally a book of hours--in the Medieval sense; it's lavishly illustrated with over a hundred of Barker's striking paintings--much of its imagery was conceived of pictorially and then reinvented as story. This is a fine book--it is also a beautiful and charming object. --Roz Kaveney, 5346594031, Action & Adventure, 280211, Literature & Fiction, 52, Young Adult, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 5346646031, General, 280230, Fantasy, 280229, Science Fiction & Fantasy, 52, Young Adult, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 279254, Fantasy, 278471, Alternative History, 279255, Anthologies & Short Stories, 4034597031, Christian Fantasy, 4034598031, Coming of Age, 279256, Contemporary, 279257, Epic, 4034599031, Fairy Tales, 279259, Historical, 4034600031, Low Fantasy, 4034601031, Metaphysical & Visionary, 4034602031, Myths & Legends, 4034609031, Superhero, 4034610031, Sword & Sorcery, 4034612031, TV, Movie, Game Adaptations, 4034613031, Urban, 4034595031, Science Fiction & Fantasy, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books
