レビュー

"Bright, vigorous pictures with plenty of action and endless detail portray Katy at work for the Highway Department of the city of Geoppolis." —Horn Book
From "'Katy' Springs to Musical Life: Cape Ann Symphony Concert Centers on Children's Classic" by Gail McCarthy
Gloucester Daily Times (1/21/2009)
Ross Burton on Virginia Lee Burton
"Ross noted that his aunt was both a tremendous artist, and a woman of tremendous values and understanding."
'For example, "Mike Mulligan" is about reinvention. "The Little House" is about family values and "Katy and the Big Snow" is about passion to contribute, to work, to put something into the community. Aunt Ginny is a person who had a real sense of being and belonging,' he said.
"Ross Burton described his aunt as a person with a buoyant personality and constant smile."
'I remember her like it was yesterday,' he said. 'Ginny had a quiet presence though she was a very strong person. She didn't have to say a lot, and when she did, people listened. She was always smiling and giving off good cheer no matter how things were for her. She had an uplifting quality with everything she came in contact with. That's what I remember. She was a gift to all who knew her, and anyone who knew her would smile. It was a contagious process.'
The Making of Katy and the Big Snow
"Virginia Lee Burton would hang out sketching the heavy machinery at the local public works yard, day after day, week after week and month after month."
"For every book she wrote, Ross Burton said she researched the machinery in great detail."
'In the case of Katy, she knew every piece of the apparatus. She was a student of her content,' he said. 'Cape Ann was a source of everything she wrote. Every book had to do with Cape Ann in one way or the other.'

著者について

Virginia Lee Burton (1909-1968) was the talented author and illustrator of some of the most enduring books ever written for children. The winner of the 1942 Caldecott Medal for THE LITTLE HOUSE, Burton's books include heroes and happy endings, lively illustrations, and a dash of nostalgia. She lived with her two sons, Aristides and Michael, and her husband George Demetrios, the sculptor, in a section of Gloucester, Massachusetts, called Folly Cove. Here she taught a class in design and from it emerged the Folly Cove designers, a group of internationally known professional artisans. She is the author of many classic children's picture books, including MIKE MULLIGAN AND HIS STEAM SHOVEL and KATY AND THE BIG SNOW.

ようやく降った大雪の日、除雪車のKATYはひとりで頑張る、頑張る・・・。話の展開がやや単調ですが、乗り物好きのお子さんはきっと喜ぶと思います。4、5ページ見開きの本文を囲む、たくさんのはたらく自動車オンバレードが、楽しい感じ。バートン独特のノスタルジックな絵が素敵です。

Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow! 2005/2/26
投稿者 Shanshad - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック
Readers familiar with Virginia Lee Burton will know her penchant for bringing inanimate objects to life. This is a wonderful addition to those books, perfect for young children between the ages of 2 and 6. This story was a favorite in my household when I was a child, much to the dismay of my mother who wished we would select anything else for a change! (She got sick of reading it more than once a week) ^_^

The star of this book, in case anyone hasn't guessed, is a tractor named Katy who is a bulldozer in the summer and a snowplow in the winter in the city of Geopolis. Geopolis could be any small city. When a huge blizzard leaves several feet of snow behind, it is up to Katy to save the day, getting everyone where they need to go in Geopolis. As the only vehicle that hasn't been stopped by the snow, Katy must prove her toughness and sense of duty by spending the whole day clearing the streets, earning a satisfying and well-needed rest at the end of the story. That's really the whole story. Sound a bit uneventful? Well, yes. There's never a doubt that Katy will succeed in her task. There isn't a great deal of interaction with human characters besides getting them where they are going. So for a child who wants a complex plot more along the lines of MIKE MULLIGAN AND HIS STEAM SHOVEL, they may be disappointed. But, as I said, this book was a favorite in my house, and there were several reasons why.

Repetition: stories for younger children with regularly repeated phrases like this one are worthwhile to the listener, if not always the reader. Throughout the book the main line-`"Follow me," said Katy'--is repeated every time Katy happens across more citizens in need. Children will soon be providing that line on their own in the course of the story. Maps: This was my first real introduction to maps, and it's a great tool for enabling your child to understand how maps work as they follow Katy's route through Geopolis. They can trace her path on the page, and find the places she's headed to or hasn't plowed out yet. You can begin to discuss concepts of North, South, East and West with them, and maybe even break out maps of your own city or town for their perusal and comparison. The pictures are simply drawn with lovely borders, and their young audience easily understands them. Snow: It's a great introduction to what can happen during a snowstorm and the kind of trucks needed to clear the way. It's a crisis without ever being a scary crisis for kids and still addresses the problems of a blizzard-getting a patient to the hospitals, getting the firemen to a fire, getting the kids to school.

For the most part, I don't recommend this book for older children. Even five and six year-olds might have outgrown this, unless they're reading the book on their own. But it's a great book to read to younger children, especially if you live in a snowy clime! If this is your first experience with this author, I highly recommend you check out MIKE MULLIGAN AND HIS STEAM SHOVEL and THE LITTLE HOUSE.

Happy Reading! Shanshad ^_^

A classic that enchants my son 2000/1/24
投稿者 カスタマー - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー
For some reason it always surprises me a little that my older son loves classic children's books like this one so much. It shouldn't---they are classics for a reason! This book has so many great little details---the map of the town, the images of the town slowly being opened up to activity by being plowed out, and of course the train and tracks which makes the book for my son! He loves the idea also that Katy is tired at the end of the big day---it's started real discussions about whether machines can really be tired, and I think helped him understand how authors can fictionalize things to give you a feeling for the themes and ideas in a book.

Hard to believe, I still remember 1999/1/30

At 51 years of age and very recently a first time grandfather with the aid of Amazon.com I started searching for my favorite stories from decades ago. All of Dr.Suess and the Little Engine That Could to Thorton Burgess's many publications that make me smile so many years later. Of all my past memories Katy and the Big Snow was one that I checked out of our local Library at least 3 times a month. It taught me that determination is most important in acheiving goals and that good things come to those who wait and endure. These are the types of books our younger generation should be reading instead of what is available on television these days. I hope someday my Grandchildren will come to enjoy this book as I have.

A perfect companion to Mike Mulligan with bold twist 2011/11/15
投稿者 sarah - (Amazon.com)
形式: ボードブック
What do you give a modern boy or girl to read that breaks the stereotype that machines are masculine and princesses and kittens are feminine?

Katy and the Big Snow is the answer to your Christmas, holiday, and general book-purchasing needs! In the tradition of Mike Mulligan and the Steam Shovel, Katy is a non-anthropomorphic but named bulldozer who harnesses her amazing strength to save the town of Geoppolis from a terrible blizzard. When the truck-mounted snow plows try but fail, Katy is taken out of storage and leads the town out of imminent peril. This is Virginia Lee Burton at her absolute best, and I can only guess that she didn't receive a Caldecott when Katy was published in 1943 because Little House had just won it the year before. Tiny, detailed drawings dominate the page and reward the careful reader who takes the time to examine each one. Residents of a burning house toss tiny furniture from their windows. Skiiers tumble down hills. An almost taxonomic study of portable generators, steam shovels, dumptrucks, and all their kin ring the border of a page. Illustrations that are afterthoughts in this book would be the highlight of any other.

The best of all is a two-page spread with a small drawing of Katy in the upper corner and otherwise bare pages: this is Katy plowing through untouched, blanketing snow. It's a brave illustration and bold even now.

The entire book evokes feelings of both heroism, bravery, and coziness. It's the perfect book for anyone who enjoys snuggling up in a snowstorm, and the perfect medicine for little boys who refuse to read about anything but trucks and other little boys. Katy is a feminist before her time and a necessary companion to any purchase of Mike Mulligan.

My son loves Virginia Burton's books 2001/8/1
投稿者 カスタマー - (Amazon.com)

I ordered this book for my son for his 7th b'day. He loves anything to do with transportation, and discovered Mike Mulligan and his steam shovel first. He checked that book out of the school library every week for more than a month, then I helped him find Katy and the Big Snow, and he loved it just as much. I remember enjoying these books when I was a child, and I think it is wonderful that books like these still bring enjoyment to the children today.
