Another Gem from our favorite author Kleven

This book is visually enticing (as are all of Kleven's charming books) providing a perfect colorful backdrop to the story of Ernst, an imaginative crocodile, who uses his creativity to breath life into a simple object. A Carousel Tale is a celebration of the wonder and magic of childhood and encourages the reader to follow their creative impluses.

A wonderfully creative new book from Elisa Kleven!

I love Elisa's new book, A Carousel Tale. It's a wonderful gift for children and my students adore the story and artwork. Elisa has captured the magic of children's imaginations with her art and writing, and adults can now enter this magical world too. Sarita (teacher in Watsonville, CA)

Beautiful Book!

This book features a charming story and gorgeous artwork. Elisa Kleven creates such a wonderful world for her characters. This book is sure to enchant children!

Kleven creates a magical world

Once again Elisa Kleven creates a magical world where the redemptive power of love and belief rule! Ernst, the lovable crocodile featured in PUDDLE PAIL and ERNST, returns in this whimsical celebrating the imagination--Kleven's beautifully detailed collages the story to life. As a former preschool teacher I believe A CAROUSEL TALE is an essential addition to the well read childs' library.

another charming Ernst story

I love the character of Ernst (Ernst, The Puddle Pail, and a cameo in The Wishing Ball). He's as sweet as ever in this story of transformation, of how to turn loss into hope through creativity. The text is perfect, a poetic gem, and the art, as always in Kleven's books, is a visual treasure, full of the kinds of detail children love to search for. I have three sons and they all love her books and this one is another classic.
