- The Kingdom Under the Sea
Buku ini bukan cerita-ce Hmmm Buku ini bukan cerita-cerita orisinal Aiken, melainkan saduran dari mitos-mitos yang ada di dataran Eropa. Makanya, perasaan 'jomplang' yang saya alami ini mungkin wajar. Buku ini banyak berisi tokoh-tokoh yang mati dan dengan cara yang sadis pula!!! Di Indonesia pun begitu, bukan? Mitos yang tersebar di masyarakat kebanyakan nakut-nakutin, cenderung mirip cerita horor yang dibungkus embel-embel "legenda".
Demikian pula cerita-cerita di buku ini. Isinya serem menurut saya. Hoooooi, dikau abis ngebunuh ibu kandung lo sendiri, tauuuuuk!!! Dari kesemuanya, karakter yang "berkarakter"--lagi-lagi menurut saya--cuma Milosh dari cerita "The Venetian Princess" dan ada yang bikin saya "Huh? Masa rajanya gak ngenalin keponakan sendiriii??? Saya suka ngeliatin rumput-rumputnya yang entah napa di mata saya terlihat beda satu sama lain! Cuma rumput padahal!!! Dikau ngeliatin gambarnya aja tuh udah berasa langsung ngerti ceritanya gimana. Meski gak ada gambar wajahnya karena--saya ingatkan lagi--cuma siluet , pembaca seolah bisa ngebayangin ekspresi masing-masing tokoh.
Jag vet inte. Jul 17, Angela rated it really liked it. This is a beautifully illustrated retelling of some East European myths. I love the internal logic of myths and legends, and the matter of fact acceptance of some very strange goings on. I'd already read some of the book before I realised that Jan Pienkowski was the illustrator of the Meg and Mog books which were my favourites as a child and are now some of my daughter's.
The style is completely different here; the picture of the Sun God's castle is truly charming. Jun 08, Alsjem rated it it was amazing. This book is a real gem. I love fairy stories and this is well researched and edited to reflect a range of cultures and ideas. Surely read it as a child but don't remember - found a tatty old copy at work and spent a happy evening re-visiting these traditional and unusual tales. I read these stories to my daughter, and she tells me she read them over and over again herself afterwards. She also adored the illustrations.

Now the grandchildren have had the pleasure of hearing them, and they also loved looking at the pictures. How lovely it is to be able to share beautiful books with more than one generation! Joan Aiken is a skilled writer, and has told these Eastern European folk tales in a manner well suited to today's children. Sep 16, Diana rated it liked it. More incredible illustrations by Jan Pienkowski. These were good tellings, but I have to point out that Aiken's original stories in Necklace of Raindrops and Other Stories are fantastic; between the two collections, I would recommend reading the latter.
Dec 25, sherdnerdess rated it liked it Shelves: children , fantasy , legends , supernatural , short-stories. The illustrations are the most stunning part about this fairy-tale collection. I do have to admit that even as an adult I often didn't understand the outcomes of the stories. Perhaps they are edited down and therefore end abruptly.
Somehow there wasn't the nostalgic wonder I was expecting. Oct 21, Richard rated it really liked it Shelves: fantasy , children-ya. A superb set of myths, beautifully retold by Joan Aiken. Jan Pienkowski's style is perfect for the tone of the storytelling, and together they bring the tales to magical life.
An excellent introduction to Eastern European legends and tales for any child - my 5-year old son loved it. I'm going to try to scan in a couple of pages - the frontspiece at the very least - when I get a chance, but the artwork is absolutely gorgous. As a sneak preview, check out Aerin's review.
Aug 10, Savva rated it it was amazing. This book had many interesting tales that have lots of magic in them that make you read the book till the end without putting it down, I loved this book!

It was one of my favourites as a child and I still love it. Sep 18, Beth rated it it was amazing Shelves: picture-books , read-in Four stars for the stories, six stars for the illustrations. Pienkowski's work is jaw-dropping amazing! Mar 13, Wayne Farmer rated it it was amazing Shelves: kids , folklore-myths-and-legends. A classic book of fairy tales from other countries.
