It's about time that publisher's start realizing that people are hungry for the excellent, classic picture books. So many mediocre titles are shoved into the market every day that there seems to be a sense that anything more than five years old is irrelevant. Now, I'm sure that the book is being reissued because there's going to be a movie of it, but it's still nice to see. So what if the new title font is lame, the book retains the same sense of magic and innovation and adventure that captured adults and children for generations. Brief synopsis:

Andrew Henry is a middle child trying to find his place in his family. He is a brilliant thinker and engineer and comes up with all kinds of crazy contraptions that his family doesn't seem to appreciate. So he goes and builds his own home and is followed by other children for whom he designs exciting and innovative homes also. The town worries when all the children haven't returned for a few days and a giant manhunt ensues. The kids get found, both children and parents are happy to reunite. Andrew Henry returns home and is given basement space to continue his excellent creations. You can read a large number of glowing reviews from its out of print edition here: Andrew Henry's Meadow

The book is a true delight. It would make an excellent gift for 7-12 year old boys especially... though everything in this book would inspire a child of either sex; it is just so good. I really wish publishers would reissue more Doris Burns titles... she was an excellent author and illustrator. (Incidentally, I think her best work was in the book We Were Tired of Living in a House... but when that got republished in 1999, they used really uninspired, Saturday-morning-cartoonish illustrations... AND THEY REMOVED ONE OF THE FOUR CHILDREN from of the original book!!! What a pity. Thankfully, Andrew Henry's Meadow suffered no such crimes... it is a safe and faithful reissue of its original glory.)

This is a classic picture book that has been a bedtime favorite in our family for years. If you have never had a copy before, this new Philomel print will not disappoint, and the price is right. You can't go wrong giving "Andrew Henry's Meadow" to new readers or parents of younger kids.

But if you have had one of the prior versions (either the original Coward-McCann edition, or the 2005 San Juan reprint), you will find minor disappointments in this latest incarnation. Most importantly, the heart of the book -- Doris Burn's detailed pen-and-ink drawings -- are rendered on a smaller scale than in prior editions, both because the dimensions of this printing are smaller, and because the entire text and layout has been reformatted, with the words being given greater relative prominence (as well as being subjected to pointless, minor revisions from the original). The net result, while subtle, is notable: Some of the intricate detail (so integral to captivating young eyes and imaginations) is lost in the compression. I've done a side-by-side comparison with both prior editions and, while I appreciate Philomel's glossy paper, crisp text, and glossy book jacket, cannot avoid a distinct preference for the older illustrations. Even though they're less flashy, the older versions are more interesting to look at.

So, while I don't mean to be overly negative about this new printing -- it's great to have this perpetual favorite readily available for a new generation -- it may be worth seeking out a copy of one of the prior printings, if you can find one for a decent price.

Did you ever have one of those days, you know, when you want to disappear? You feel unappreciated, misunderstood and just out of sorts with the rest of the world?

Andrew Henry's Meadow is just such a book. Andrew Henry is the middle child. With two older sister's and two younger brother's, he has unique interests and unlike his siblings, has no one to enjoy them with. Content with his own company, he creates wonderful and thoughtful inventions. The problem is-his efforts are under appreciated. Bothered by his family's unhappiness with his efforts, he goes off to build his own home, where he does what he enjoys to his heart's content.

Soon, a village of many misunderstood youngsters are housed in his meadow. It seems, some parents aren't tolerating their pastimes either. Four days pass, and frantic parents search for their "missing" children.

It all ends with a happy reunion and with the understanding, that while we may not all have the same interests, we must respect and allow others to enjoy theirs.

A wonderful book about tolerance and understanding. Great read.

I remember reading this book in second grade and I absolutely loved it. I wanted to go out and build a clubhouse over the stream on my parents' property. This would be a great book for any child but I think middle children would especially identify with the protagonist. The illustrations are so fun to look at. It's definitely something to read as a family before building a tree house for some good ideas to incorporate into it. I look forward to my daughter being old enough to appreciate this book.

This book is SO outstanding. I must have first encountered it when it first came out, read & discussed it with my own kids, read & discussed with every class I had of kindergartners & first graders, & still love it for myself. It covers so well many of the ways people have made housing thru the ages, in a kids' construction kind of way. Makes me want to go out & build these simple structures !

What a great book for those children who are independent and creative! Also a great read for a middle-child. What is so great about Andrew is that he not only builds houses for his friends, those houses are uniquely suited to each friend. Wonderful lesson on how we are all different, and that it is not a big deal. At least, it doesn't seem like a big deal to Andrew and his friends. Pictures are wonderfully crafted.

The older I get the more important the books of my child hood seem to be. Glad to find this one in order to make my 'memory library' a gift for my children's children.
