Read full description of the books:



Almost experimental in its adherence to tedium, as a good 2/3rds of the book is dedicated to Irene's monotonous trek through a snowy forest to deliver her sick mom's handmade gown to the duchess in time for the ball; no supernatural intrusions, no animals, no mythic nomadic hunters, nothing, just Irene sruggling against the elements page after page; the sun goes down and the snow goes from white to grey (my daughter points at the greyly depicted nocturnal snow and calls it mud), the gown is blown away by the "wicked" wind (the one slight touch of anti-naturalism, but natural in a child), and Irene finally makes it to the palace (nice glimpse of it on one earlier page glimmering in the corner in the distance), finds the gown plastered to a tree by the wind, and delivers it just in time for the ball which is well represented on a climactic two page spread (as my daughter's eyes dance across the dancing figures she says "I can't hear the music" which is so touching and magical I can hardly bear it as it transports me to a kind of primordial imaginative apprehension of art - kids can take us back to beginnings), then ends on the downswing with a slightly mysterious bearded doctor arriving on a santa's sleigh to tend to Irene's sick mother.

Read information about the author

Ebook Irène la courageuse read Online! William Steig was born in New York City in 1907. In a family where every member was involved in the arts, it was not surprising that Steig became an artist.

He published his first children's book, Roland the Minstrel Pig, in 1968, embarking on a new and very different career.

Steig's books reflect his conviction that children want the security of a devoted family and friends. When Sylvester, Farmer Palmer, Abel, Pearl, Gorky, Solomon, and Irene eventually get home, their families are all waiting, and beginning with Amos & Boris, friendship is celebrated in story after story.
