Synopsis: Winner, Book of the Year Younger Readers, Children's Book Council Awards 1992 Winner, Crichton Award for Best New Illustrator 1992 Meet Lindalou, who makes a wondrous flying boat and sails to Kathmandu; timid Andy Umm, who talks to animals and tames a lion; curious Ferdinand, who cures the prime minister with the help of his magic spectacles; Ignatius Binz, whose magnificent nose picks up the faintest whiff of danger; Valentina Lookwell, who paints people as they really are; Wendelin B Wordforce, who writes down their stories; and Aristan, the magic spider, as golden as a dab of butter, who befriends them all.
From Kirkus Reviews: Small, peculiar children with enormous gifts parade through this storybook of almost self-contained chapters, set down amidst alternating pages of whimsical full-color and b&w illustrations. Lindalou, born with a golden hammer and nail in her hands, amazes everyone with her skilled wooden creations; Andy, previously overlooked because of his alleged shyness, becomes a lion tamer; Valentina paints portraits of people, not as they are but as she believes them to be, and they are transformed; Ignatius (of the title piece) can smell danger and thus save lives; Ferdinand's curiosity and a magic pair of spectacles lead to his greatness in the field of medicine. Fienberg plants her tongue strategically near her cheek in chronicling the children's fairly mild dilemmas and includes a golden spider to bind the tales lightly together and supply a little extraneous magic. The greatest treasures may be the observations of the adults who, either oblivious or enamored of their children's skills, buoy the tales with almost every comment.
