    I purchased this book in paperback format as a gift for my eight year old nephew I also bought it in digital format so that I could pre read it before I gave it to him This is something I often try to do when I m giving a book to someone, especially a child, so that I know the content and we can enjoy talking about the story once they ve finished reading it I ve never heard of this book previously, but the description stated that it was a classic and the story line sounded quite appealing so I purchased this book in paperback format as a gift for my eight year old nephew I also bought it in digital format so that I could pre read it before I gave it to him This is something I often try to do when I m giving a book to someone, especially a child, so that I know the content and we can enjoy talking about the story once they ve finished reading it I ve never heard of this book previously, but the description stated that it was a classic and the story line sounded quite appealing so I thought I would give it a try I am very glad I did It was a fun group of stories set in a chapter book style which makes it a very good book for young readers It is easy to read and has a nice, flowing presentation of words on each page that breaks up the typical full paragraph style of most other books This gives it a uniquely whimsical and eye catching emphasis The author also illustrated the book with many absolutely wonderful pictures throughout the stories I hope that my nephew will enjoy the book as much as I did, and I think this would be a delightful addition to any young person s boy or girl library

    I really like the work of William Heath Robinson in general and very much so in this book The text is minimal, the illustrations are wonderful I think that the mer man on page 61 0f my copy 1992 David R Godine, Publisher, Inc paperback looks very much like George Bernard Shaw, but would Shaw have looked that old in 1902 How could anyone not like a children s book this beautifully illustrated in which Uncle Lubin and his rescued at last nephew lived happily ever after

    A cute little book, able to read in 10 mins, and great artwork by W Heath Robinson, whose artwork is as fantastic as Arthur Rackhams

    This was a quirky children s book with gorgeous illustrations We went to an exhibit opening at the Delaware Art Museum that is currently featuring illustrations by Heath Robinson and discovered this book It was very fun and the kids enjoyed this quick read.

    I ve enjoyed sharing this one with my kids I read it when I was young and was captivated by the crazy illustrations of Heath Robinson The story itself is very random but not without direction.The drawings and plot are wildly inventive and mind expanding And they re the kind of illustrations with lots of detail that can be commented on as you move through the book, such that you ll find yourself flipping back to see where an item such as an umbrella was in the previous setting.I wouldn t be su I ve enjoyed sharing this one with my kids I read it when I was young and was captivated by the crazy illustrations of Heath Robinson The story itself is very random but not without direction.The drawings and plot are wildly inventive and mind expanding And they re the kind of illustrations with lots of detail that can be commented on as you move through the book, such that you ll find yourself flipping back to see where an item such as an umbrella was in the previous setting.I wouldn t be surprised if Nick Park Wallace and Gromit was exposed to Heath Robinson when he was young Ah yes, here s a video talking about the influence

    The illustrations in this children s book are top notch Just really fun and imaginative work The stories are interesting but pretty much pointless There s no lesson to be learned and most of the stories go nowhere at all Feels like maybe the artwork was made and THEN somone tried to work a story around them If you really like old pen and ink artwork though I would check this out.

  9. Deborah Deborah says:

    The story here is funny and sweet, but I like this book most of all for its wondrous pen and ink drawings It s all the best of Heath Robinson whimsical contraptions, fantastic settings, and marvelous characters And this volume is beautifully produced by Godine.

    What a delightful little book Another one that I just picked up at a second hand book sale but so precious It s written in exactly the way I like children s books to be written and now I m feeling really inspired to actually write some similar stories Absolutely fantastic read
