Its storytelling is rich and riddled with iconoclastic wit – parenthetical asides and slapped-wrist remonstrations – addressing the reader directly. Well, three actually by the time she’s finished, none of whom prove remotely up to the job for various rather unheroic reasons.
Refrains pop up when you least expect them, some when you need them the most. Yes, little does Bera suspect she’ll turn out to be the champion the baby needed all along!
Key elements of some stories foreshadow future developments and rarely have I read a climax and conclusion so satisfying on every level. Assisted by her redoubtable owl Winslowe, she’ll find herself battling the odious mermaids, plus gibbering goblins, tree-gnawing shadow wolves and various other spooky beasties at every turn, (not forgetting the villainous Cloote!
SLH Buy The One Hundred Nights Of Hero and read the Page 45 review here “WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA…” “What is that? ) though she’ll find some courageous creatures willing to help her too, particularly the hedgehogs, bless ‘em.
What makes this really stand out in the rapidly burgeoning all-ages arena, though, is Eric’s art.
I see on the dust jacket he cites Arthur Rackham and Maurice Sendak as inspirations.
It is also the triumph of THE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF EARLY EARTH’s Isabel Greenberg yet again in such an addictively compelling set-up and seamlessly stitched-together sequence of tales that I swept through this in one afternoon, pausing only to refill and reflect. Plus it’s all for the sake of a bet – a bet based on man-pride! She visits him whenever her lunar cycle allows, on her nights off from shining in the sky.
Will handmaiden Hero similarly succeed in saving the virtue of her beloved mistress Cherry from the predatory advances of her husband’s lascivious and quite ridiculous best mate? Sisters are important.” What Greenberg has done here with the Scheherazade scenario – which elements she has incorporated and how she’s repositioned them – is ever so clever and makes for much mockery of man-pride. (They were called Manfred and Jerome, if you want to know.) Anyway, they sat together and they talked, as men are wont to do, of Women.” I really can’t wait. “Fact: there are no good women.” Pawn to king’s bishop two. Back to my criteria.” We’ll get to why that’s important in a second, I swear. Clever enough to have a conversation, not clever enough to disagree with me. That too is a True Love, and Greenberg has all the right words to describe it: “It began to seem to the man that everything that happened in between those nights was a dream; that he was sleepwalking his way through the days until she would come to him again.
And reading and writing are magic, it’s true, with the ability to change hearts and minds. On publication we made THE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF EARLY EARTH Page 45 Comicbook Of The Month. Not surprisingly, she’s equally perplexed about how it got there, bobbing away in the sea out in the middle of nowhere near her little carefully tended pumpkin patch of an island.” “I don’t know how they’re getting away with it, either. “Marriage to me must be the height of her ambition. Goaded by Manfred’s disbelief, Jerome challenges Manfred to take his Cherry – her’s – within 100 nights while he is away. In ‘One Thousand And One Nights’ the king takes a new wife for one night only and then beheads the poor love to prevent infidelity because he’d got stiffed the first time round. “So how is that this smashing babe got landed with such a grade A pillock? But here’s the final twist which raises the stakes even further: she was already in love. After Cherry successfully plays the piety card on night one. Had I not vowed to take you, and were my Manly Honour not at stake, I might feel a little ashamed… In one the very words “I Love You” – written by hand on a misty window – are the cause of heart-breaking catastrophe.But I for one want to know what happens next.” Such was the triumph of Scheherazade in ‘One Thousand And One Nights’, successfully staving off execution at the hands of her husband through storytelling. But here it’s Manfred’s already ingrained misogyny which prejudiced him against his wife’s word, and that didn’t end well so every card imaginable is already stacked against poor Cherry. She was beautiful, obedient, good at battleworks and falconry. “I don’t, however, because there is not only my Manly Honour, but also a castle at stake here. In another a noble soul falls in love with one of Early Earth’s three Moons.It’s coming from the other side of the island.” “It’s horrible! (I can’t ever see a hedgehog in a comic without thinking of the rather amusing sequence with Timothy Hunter in the Baba Yaga’s Hut in THE BOOKS OF MAGIC!) As all-age yarns go, this hits the mark perfectly in terms of story-telling with just the right amount of scariness for little ones (just as Eric’s previous work MADDY KETTLE: THE ADVENTURES OF THE THIMBLEWITCH did) balanced with the caring, courageous actions of the compassionate Bera, who’s certainly a role model for all trolls and mini-humans out there.
