Sobre l'autor

Bruce Coville was born in Syracuse, New York, on May 16, 1950. He spent one year at Duke University in North Carolina. Coville started working seriously at becoming a writer when he was seventeen. He was not able to start selling stories right away, so he had many other jobs, including toymaker, mostra'n més gravedigger, cookware salesman, and assembly line worker. Eventually, Coville became an elementary teacher, and worked with second and fourth graders. Coville married Katherine Dietz an artist, and they began trying to create books together. It wasn't until 1977 that they finally sold their first book, The Foolish Giant. They joined together on two other books after that, Sarah's Unicorn and The Monster's Ring, and followed them with Goblins in the Castle, Aliens Ate My Homework, and The World's Worst Fairy Godmother.

Bruce Coville wrote a couple of books in the Planet Builders series, under the pseudonym Robyn Tallis (which was used by other authors in the rest of the series).




The illustrations grow on you. Because he's a Scot, Macbeth appears as a sort of Celtic knight, in mediaeval mail, but wearing a lot of tartan and carrying a shield with Celtic decoration. Banquo is distinguished from Macbeth by his mustache. When the tyrant Macbeth rules, Scotland is foggy and snowy. Once he is overthrown, the black-faced sheep graze happily in a partly sunny pasture. The story is narrated well, with some well-chosen quotations thrown in, and the foreword demonstrates that the author, Bruce Coville, knows his subject.… (més)

Horn Book Guide: "Cara travels across the land of Luster to find the door to Earth that will reunite her with her grandmother, known in Luster as the Wanderer" while Beloved and the Hunters attempt to find them and steal the amulet that would allow them to enter Luster.
JennyArch | Sep 1, 2023 |
Cara Diana Hunter and her grandmother, Ivy Morris, are being pursued. Cara follows her grandmother's instructions to escape: on the twelfth bell of the church clock, she calls on the power of her grandmother's amulet and is transported to Luster, the land of the unicorns, where she is to give the message that "the Wanderer is weary." In Luster, Cara is attacked by a delver, but rescued by a unicorn called Lightfoot and a man-bear creature called the Dimblethum. She meets others as well, and learns that her grandmother visited Luster many years ago - but now, both Ivy and Luster itself are in danger from hunters descended from a woman called Beloved.

Creative worldbuilding and mythology underpin this adventure story with a strong girl at its center.

A fun little YA novel - a sci-fi flavoured mystery. It's got a 50's style innocence to it that's quite different that the current darker style currently in vogue. A solid three for me, I suspect I'd have liked it more if I was closer in age to the main character.
