Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

This early work by Nikolai Gogol was originally published in 1835 and we are now republishing it with a brand new introductory biography. 'The Nose' is a short story about a St. Petersburg official whose nose leaves his face and develops a life of its own. Nikolai Vasilievich Gogol was born in Sorochintsi, Ukraine in 1809. In 1831, Gogol brought out the first volume of his Ukrainian stories, 'Evenings on a Farm Near Dikanka'. It met with immediate success, and he followed it a year later with a second volume. 'The Nose' is regarded as a masterwork of comic short fiction, and 'The Overcoat' is now seen as one of the greatest short stories ever written; some years later, Dostoyevsky famously stated We all come out from Gogol's 'Overcoat'. He is seen by many contemporary critics as one of the greatest short story writers who has ever lived, and the Father of Russia's Golden Age of Realism.

   Not my kid’s favorite
My daughter loves ear and eye versions but doesn 't enjoy this for any reason. It is however durable, colorful, and inexpensive. She may grow up to like it.

   Nothing special
To read it at a library, purchase it, but do not spend the money to purchase it. We chose to stay with Sniff! Lick! ''

   My favorite Dr. Seuss book to read to kids
My children love this book and I know all the words by heart. Great for teaching children nose, head, eyes as well as colors and other first words.

   This book is missing the ending pages.
Others have complained that it ends abruptly, and it is because it is missing the ending. We have a further copy of the book and it includes the missing pages.

   Just ok. Many others are better.
This book is pretty good but not as good as the Tooth Book, the Eye Book or any of the Seuss books we have. There isn 't much of a story and the illustrations are mostly good, but not great. There is one, however, that I wish was not included in the book, a man snoring in bed, seen from a perspective from the foot of the bed. No eyes, ears or hair is visible, just a big chin, an impossibly round nose and a frowning open mouth. This image is so distorted that the head looks like a bowling pin with a frown. Among all the many dozen books we've shown our 19 month old daughter, this is the first and only image that seems to disturb her. It is not a big problem but without it the book would be better for our daughter. It's an ok book, but I recommend many other books before this one.
