Count Silvernose is an English retelling of an Italian folktale. We found this book while looking for stories to complement our study of Italy

Count Silvernose is an English retelling of an Italian folktale. Our heroine, Asunta, has none of the traits we look for in a potential princess, yet we find ourselves rooting for her and her quest to rescue her silly sisters. The colors of the illustrations are as warm as sunset and recall the parchment sketches of the old masters. We found this book while looking for stories to complement our study of Italy. The story and the illustrations are a great springboard for a discsussion of Italian artists and architecture. A great book for grade-school kids and older.

I have a new book out-Why Worry? Actually, it's an old book. I made a video for my fans to enjoy.

When her two foolish younger sisters vanish after going to work for a mysterious man with a nose made of polished silver, a clever young woman becomes suspicious and devises a plan to outfox the silver-nosed villain.

When you are ready to have your tales with less treacle and pink powder the world of story opens up. How about an ugly heroine? How about an older sister both clever and kind? How about a tale which leaves out the prince? the witch? the dragon?

We really liked that it wasn't princess-y (she's a doer - not a girly-girl) and we also liked the illustrations.

I read this book when I was in elementary school and I still remembered the story as clear as day. I think this is a great page turner for younger ages, it has suspense, action, and bravery! Love it!

I thought this was an excellent picture book that would be suitable for many ages and for girls in particular. This book breaks a lot of typical sterotypes that are present in our culture today. First the heroine is not male and secondly, she is not beautiful, but ugly even by her own standards. So this makes the story very original and captures the reader's interest because of these reasons. Another important thing that this story does is that it grabs the reader's attention and imagination right away. The plot has many twists and turns to it, yet I found it interesting and easy to follow. It was also laced with humor which was important to cut the tension in places. Another reason to recommend this book is for the illustrations. The illustrator Omar Rayyan is excellent. His illustrations for this book seem to have been influenced by Lenoardo DaVinci. His drawings of imps and goblins are wonderfully horrid, but not so bad as to scare the younger reader. This is an outstanding book that children and adults will both love and it is well worth having in your collection.
