David Lucas is the author and illustrator of several acclaimed picture books, including Cake Girl, Halibut Jackson, The Robot and the Bluebird, and Whale. Halibut Jackson was chosen as one of the top-10 children's books of 2004 by both Publishers Weekly and Child magazine, and was included in a 2009 Japanese survey of the best 100 picture books published worldwide in the last 10 years. My K and 1st graders loved me reading this aloud. It's fairly tricky, in terms of wordplay (the carpet lies there all day), vocabulary, pacing, and picking out what are stories vs. lies vs. reality

David Lucas describes his drawing as ‘knitting with ink’ and his stories are a mix of myth, fairytale and autobiography.

Lucas David or Lukas David (1503 – April 1583) was a Prussian historian, who from ca. 1550 on compiled extensive volumes on Prussian history. David was born in Allenstein (Olsztyn) in Royal Prussia. He studied at the University of Leipzig, where he also received a "Magister degree". Despite having converted to Protestantism, he became the chancellor of Bishop Tiedemann Giese between 1540 and 1549. After Giese received the Diocese of Warmia, David joined the ducal court of Albert, Duke of Prussia, in Königsberg in 1549, taking his oath on March 26 1550.

His Grace dies, and Faith jumps down from her plinth, flying off in the night on her tiger carpet. The house is filled with another family, and the youngest child finds the shut stone book, which one day opens in her hands. Stories-truth and lies-spin around each other, thick as the ornamentation that fills every page. Fabulous (as in fablelike), this will tug relentlessly on the mind and heart of any child ready to read it.

Written by David Lucas, narrated by Nicholas Bell. Is the tiger who discusses making choices with her a lying carpet or a flying carpet? The tiger attempts to advise her by giving her many versions of the truth. Is the tiger that is also a carpet real, fake, or magical? Bell splendidly captures these two very different personalities, the decisions they must make, and how they can help each other.

From the author of the acclaimed Halibut Jackson comes a mold-breaking philosophical fairy tale for all ages. Part graphic novel—an extraordinary gift book to treasure. Imagine a disused living room in a grand house. In it is a tiger rug and a statue of a little girl. But is the tiger a real tiger, a fake, or a magical carpet? Is the little girl real but bewitched, or just a stone statue, and will she ever come to life? By turns comical and lugubrious, the tiger gives the little girl plenty of versions of the truth, but how will she decide what is true and will she be able to break free? A parable about outgrowing childhood and becoming what you want to be, this is a book for anyone who has ever felt "stuck" in their circumstances.
  • My K and 1st graders loved me reading this aloud. It's fairly tricky, in terms of wordplay (the carpet lies there all day), vocabulary, pacing, and picking out what are stories vs. lies vs. reality. It's a little like a kids' version of Rashomon, Inception or Memento, where you never quite know what is really going on. All of this makes it good fun for kids who are just starting to think in terms of jokes, puns, riddles (not to mention how to distinguish truth from fantasy, or the reliability of the narrator).

    It is especially well-suited for families of slightly older children who still want a read-aloud experience. It's not long, but it is dense enough to hold the attention of the cleverer children. I also think that if I read it to myself (or my daughter read it by herself), I would speed through and miss some of the subtleties.

  • Such a quirky little book - thought provoking, mysterious, messes with your mind. Highly recommended!

  • The kind of book that awakens children's imagination. I read Halibut Jackson to my 7 and 9 year old, (not because they can't read it for themselves, but because we still love sharing books together occasionally). And I'm so glad I just happened upon this author, a true undiscovered great! This book, in particular, is wonderful for kids of my children's ages, and older. Creepy, lovely, wondrous and deep. Read it! Give it to your kids!

  • great, playful language, but the story didn't go as far as it could have.

  • This quiet book is perfect for that dreamy child you love.

    Although in a picture book format, this book is appropriate for older children. What is real? What is true?

    This book is enchanting. You'll hope the spell will never break.

    Excellent.
