Jack's parents gave him a new toy and he can't believe how silly it is! Sometimes it's funny and other times it's scary. Sometimes it talks to him and other times it hides. At first, Jack loves all the surprises that his toy can offer, but after a while he starts to think his toy is a little too silly - in fact, it's gone out of control! -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Gebundene Ausgabe .

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Art Spiegelman is best known for his masterful two-volume Holocaust narrative, Maus, which in 1992 won a Pulitzer Prize. Born in Stockholm in 1948, Spiegelman rejected his parents' aspirations for him to become a dentist and he began to study cartooning in high school and drawing professionally at age 16. In 2005, he was named one of Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People. He was made a Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres in France in 2005 and—the American equivalent—played himself on an episode of “The Simpsons” in 2008. He has published Meta Maus, a companion to The Complete Maus, which was awarded the National Jewish Book Award. In 2011, Art Spiegelman won the Grand Prix at the Angoulême International Comics Festival. His latest book, CO-MIX: A Retrospective of Comics, Graphics, and Scraps, was published by Drawn & Quarterly in September 2013. He lives in New York City, with his wife and collaborator, Françoise Mouly, TOON Books' Editorial Director.

Two boys' review: "Can we read it again?" 12. Oktober 2008
Von Jared Castle - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
I'm a father of two boys, ages 6 and 4. This is my first review as part of Amazon's Vine program. I've reviewed a lot of children's books and you can find some of my other recommendations in my Listmania! List titled, "Little boys' bedtime books."

My initial response to this book was negative. I pulled it out of the Amazon shipping box and read it cover to cover, sitting alone at our dining table. The book didn't meet my expectations of a young reader's book, even though the vocabulary was appropriate for their ages.

At bedtime, I squeezed between my sons, who were dressed in superhero pajamas with their heads topped on a triangle of arms and elbows that disappeared into their Batman comforters. I gave Jack, the little rabbit, a boy's soft, inquisitive tone and Zack, the jack-in-the-box, a nasal-voiced New Yorker's accent. My sons liked the large cartoon panels (two panels per page). At the end of the book, my four-year old turned to me and asked, "Can we read it again?"

So, we did. On the second reading, my six-year old read along with me while his younger brother noted the rhymes and oversaw the sound effects (a "pop" every time Zack appeared from his box).

We've had the book now for nearly a week and the book is still as popular at bed time. My six-year old can now read it cover to cover.

I eventually figured out the source of my initial negative response. The book's audience is children, not adults. My sons took to the book immediately because they don't value a bedtime book with how it meets their expectations. They have none. So long as the book is fun, they will ask me to read it again and again.

"Jack and the Box" is fun. 5 stars.

Jack, Zack, Mack and the DUCK... 2. Oktober 2008
Von A. Dent - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
Art Spiegelman, the author, learned to read by looking at comics, or so he claims. My little girl learned how to read NO, WOW, HEY, NOW, BAD, even SILLY tonight as we 'read' this little story. As Art would probably write, she LOVED it!

If someone didn't get it, let me decode what this story is about. Or, at least that's my little girl's reading of it. Jack gets a BOX and ALL that follows is a PLAY of Jack's imagination AND Jack IS a SILLY boy. Watch for the REDS - all things RED are creatures of JACK's imagination. Kids should learn not only reading a few simple words but they should also feel encouraged to let their own imagination run silly and explore the unexpected.

Technical details: hard cover, simple but effective drawings, minimal colors, vocabulary well-suited for a 4-6 year old.

Did I mention that my girl enjoyed it? She can't wait for her girlfriends to come visiting so she can go over the story with them. Right now, she's trying to tell it to her mother.

The story being so silly and unboring I can see how we can go over it a few more times and keep practicing some of the simple words.

The 5 stars are awarded because my girl's clearly enjoying it and because she felt so proud for being able to point to me the clue pointing to the Jack's adventures being imaginary (it's the lamp).

A puzzler from Art Speigelman 15. Oktober 2008
Von DJ Joe Sixpack - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
"Jack And The Box" by Art Spiegelman (2008)

This is dark-toned children's book from renowned illustrator Art Spiegelman (known for his work on RAW magazine, The New Yorker, the "Maus" graphic novels, and a murky past as an underground cartoonist and Wacky Packs designer) It's very much in keeping with the "Kid's Lit" series he edited -- artful stories that are intended as much for eggheady kids as for their adult minders. In this story, a boy named Jack gets a jack-in-the-box as a present, but soon finds that the toy has a mind of its own. Their interactions are brief, oblique, and sometimes a bit creepy. This seems to play into the same fear that some people have of clowns, where something that's supposed to be "fun" turns out to have a dark, hidden side. I think for the right reader, this would be a great book, although we were a little creeped out by it. Worth checking out ahead of time. (Joe Sixpack, ReadThatAgain book reviews)

Very Mixed Review for this Book 4. Oktober 2008
Von Patricia Walker - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
I have a very mixed review for this book. First I read it to my 3 year old and she did not like it at all. She thought it was scary and I did too. The pictures of the toy coming out of the box are very disturbing. Next my six year old read it and she really like it and thought it was funny. She has just starting learning to read and she could read most of the words in the book. She even got out a piece of paper and starting writing some of the rhyming words from the book. I could not believe that she was enjoying it so much but she really did sit for a while and read it. Next my 9 year old son read it and he said "this book is really creepy". This is not a book that I enjoyed but if you are having trouble getting a new reader to practice reading it might be a good idea.

The Box Has No Crank 15. Oktober 2008
Von palealien - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
If you are familiar at all with the work of Art Spiegelman, at first it might seem strange to see he has created a line of children's books. But after a moments thought and a turn through "Jack And The Box", I found it made sense.

As the author himself states, "I am easily unhinged" and alludes to the fact that he may well be in that state most of the time.

"Jack And The Box" does little to change this impression.

Jack, the titular character is a small child, he is at first scared and surprised by the creature from the box Zack, - but he gradually becomes used to him and demands his presence more and more. Zack obliges, growing more and more imposing each time, eventually showing up with a whole menagerie of uninvited guests who wreak havoc on Jack's home. How like too many parties I have seen.

As a tool for first-time readers, comic or otherwise, I can only guess how helpful it will be. Many people smarter than I have devoted their lives studying how we learn, I would never pretend to understand. My first books were about trucks and airplanes, not a scary creature who may or may not be an allegory of addiction and recovery.

In the end, Jack triumphs over Zack, but seems to have learned his lesson.

I am a huge fan of Spiegelman, I turned more people onto him through "Maus" than would ever have cared or even considered the Holocaust any other way, not as though that's relevant here. And "Shadow Of No Towers" is stunning. Would I like to see my child reading these works? Definitely. Would it warp his world-view? Maybe, but who knows how much "Make Way For The Throughway" affected my own.
