9780811848398: Thirteen O'Clock

This is the story of a very normal girl on an almost normal night in a fairly normal housenormal, that is, except for a not-so-normal clock whose numbers count not twelve but a spooky thirteen.

James Stimson's extraordinary book about the antics of a perky prankster in pajamas is a feast of words and pictures. Filled with sly wordplay, atmospheric illustrations, and a baker's dozen of spritely, spooky, spunky characters, it reminds readers that more fun than fright can be had from things that go bump, bong, groan, clatter, squeak, and gong in the night.

About the Author:

James Stimson is a freelance illustrator who has worked extensively on film animation (he was the cut-out character designer for the film version of James and the Giant Peach.) He lives in Northern California and this is his first book.

Review:

"A film animator for James and the Giant Peach makes his children's book debut with this entertaining, deliciously quirky chronicle...Internal rhyme, alliteration and whimsical wordplay abound, making this poetic story a delight for wordsmiths and a rather hypnotic read-aloud for the younger set...Innovative designs and varied font sizes add to the fun of this offbeat offering." -Kirkus Reviews

"Whirling winds wail through the scenes, and plenty of typographical pyrotechnics-crooked typesetting, large and small fonts, and occasional hand-lettering-add visual punch. Stimson's free-associating free-verse and bold use of an eclectic, alliterative vocabulary ("Is it a peculiar pendulum with a precarious pivot?") make this a fine read-aloud choice-at any hour of the day or night." -Publishers Weekly

"With illustrations that'll remind adults of a Tim Burton animation, and prose that feels like Seuss from the dark side, Stimson's Thirteen O'Clock definitely isn't a rehash of pumpkin path lore or silly gore. Oh no. It's so much more." -South Florida Sun-Sentinel
