Description
"In [Gary] Schmidt's picture-book retelling of Nathaniel Hawthorne's story, young Ethan grows to manhood in a small New Hampshire village within view of the Great Stone Face in the granite cliffs. He learns of the prophecy connected with the face—a person will be born who resembles the carving and then go on to live a noble life. On several occasions the villagers feel that the prophecy has come to pass, but each time Ethan realizes that the person's character is flawed. Much later Ethan's granddaughter recognizes that it is Ethan himself who looks like the noble image. The text [for readers 7 to 10] is clear and succinct, with a stately rhythm that lends itself to reading aloud, and [Bill] Farnsworth's beautifully rendered oil paintings reflect both the 19th-century New England setting as well as the elegant tone of the text."—Booklist
