    Epub animal fiction.co ´ The Lying Carpet Kindle ´ The Lying eBook Á lying mobile, carpet kindle, The Lying mobile, The Lying Carpet KindleI listened to this one on Audiobook via my library's BorrowBox serviceThis is a imaginative parable about a young girl called Faith who wakes up one day and realises that no matter how hard she tries she can't seem to move The tiger carpet that is in the room with her breaks the news that Faith is a stature and not a human Various stories are then created by the tiger carpet as Faith struggles to come to terms with her new surroundings But are the stories by the tiger carpet real or just a trick of the imagination? Although a little confusing at times The Lying Carpet is a very imaginative story one that children can read and easi

    Epub animal fiction.co ´ The Lying Carpet Kindle ´ The Lying eBook Á lying mobile, carpet kindle, The Lying mobile, The Lying Carpet KindleAn allegorical story that made me think of the Little Prince The book's shape and size make it appear to be a picture book but this is definitely not for the preschooler Older children and adults however will likely enjoy this imaginative conversation between a statue and a carpet I think this book is one that will be prone to multiple readings with new m

    Epub animal fiction.co ´ The Lying Carpet Kindle ´ The Lying eBook Á lying mobile, carpet kindle, The Lying mobile, The Lying Carpet KindleThis is one of those picture books left to languish in the J section not interesting to picture book age readers too many words b and w illustrations too easy looking for J Readers and just right for adults Only how would they come across it? It's a fable a homily an illustrated sermon and just lovely Although the other day I picked it up entirely not in the mood and dropped it this morning it was perfect Maybe it is one of those books that finds you when you're readyRecommended by Erin Stead and Phillip Hall husband and wife writing and illustration dynamic duo And passed on

    Epub animal fiction.co ´ The Lying Carpet Kindle ´ The Lying eBook Á lying mobile, carpet kindle, The Lying mobile, The Lying Carpet KindleI loved this It has influences of Lewis Carroll C S Lewis and Edward Gorey and it lightheartedly but not flippantly explores themes of faith truth and paradox I say explores because the book remains ambiguous And I say ambiguous because I can't discern a clear message that the book is sending; the author is consistently elusive I think instead he just wants to make readers think for themselves As such it's a book that will entertain children but captivate older kids and adults The illustrations are beautiful and it's often funny too

    Epub animal fiction.co ´ The Lying Carpet Kindle ´ The Lying eBook Á lying mobile, carpet kindle, The Lying mobile, The Lying Carpet KindleThis book was a bit confusing Perhaps intended to make the reader as confused as the little girl on the plinthThe publicity says it is about choices I think too many choices to really get that theme across Particularly as the carpet says one thing after another before the little girl can get her head round the last

Or was he one of many

    Epub animal fiction.co ´ The Lying Carpet Kindle ´ The Lying eBook Á lying mobile, carpet kindle, The Lying mobile, The Lying Carpet KindleThe Lying Carpet by David Lucas is a beautiful book with an intriguing text and delightful illustrations We begin with a statue of a girl looking out of the window while a book lies open in her lap Her name is Faith For centuries Faith has remained silent and immobile until the day our story begins when she begins to awaken A tiny spark of thought leads her to say I feel as if I have been asleep for everIn response she hears a voice telling her But you haveThat voice belongs to the Carpet the Carpet that looks like a tiger and is not a good carpet for a good carpet should really only speak when absolutely necessary This particular Carpet is exceptionally talkative; and he provides Faith with various versions of a multitude of stories leaving her to decide which stories are true or perhaps all the stories are true Although frustrated Faith enjoys the tig

    Epub animal fiction.co ´ The Lying Carpet Kindle ´ The Lying eBook Á lying mobile, carpet kindle, The Lying mobile, The Lying Carpet KindleThis is not a children's book; it is a philosophical or self help? fable kinda like Jonathan Livingston Seagull But instead of hitting you over the head with its message it is subtle the writing allusive but not cloyingMaybe it's too subtle I couldn't figure out if I was missing the point of the book or if it just wasn't addressed to people like me Is it about the power of imagination or maybe of anger? Faith the poor statue who is the protagonist of the book sometimes finds anger a helpful tool to solve a problem just like Riley
