معرفی کتاب سرافینا و شنل سیاه از نگاه کاربران
I had the pleasure last week of reading an advance copy of Serafina and the Black Cloak by Robert Beatty. Serafina, to be published by Disney, is a page-turner that is sure to be a hit with the younger set (as well as many adults, like me!).

Serafina and the Black Cloak is an adventure/mystery that takes place at the Vanderbilt Biltmore Estate deep in rural North Carolina. Dark, foreboding woods surround the estate. Our heroine, Serafina, has a mysterious past somehow tied to that frightening forest, but try as she might she cannot unravel her own shadowed beginnings. Instead she lives with her Pa in the bowels of the Biltmore Estate, unknown to the Vanderbilts. Her Pa works at the estate; Serafina catches rats at night with uncanny acumen. He tells her she must remain hidden, so in twelve years Serafina has never had a friend.

As Serafina struggles to understand her origin, children begin to disappear from the estate. No one knows who has taken them, nor where they have been taken. Only Serafina has secretly witnessed one of the small girls being spirited away by a man in a black cloak, but her Pa wont let her step out of the shadows to tell anyone. Risking everything, Serafina approaches 12-year old Braeden Vanderbilt and shares her secret. Together Sera and Braeden begin to tackle the mystery, each realizing it is the first time they have ever had a friend.

More and more children disappear, and finally, the tension and her own need for self-identity reaching a crescendo, Serafina strikes out into the foreboding woods, where she is determined to solve both the mystery of the missing children, and of her own origin. To do so has major consequences: not only must she face her fears of what she might find in the forest, but she also risks losing her friendship with Braeden.

Its all very spooky and intriguing, with the kind of twists and turns that will keep a reader on the edge of his or her seat. Serafina and the Black Cloak is an excellent read that should make a big splash. And with Disney in the publishing mix, dont be surprised to see a cinematic version of Serafina coming to the big screen someday soon.

En realidad un 3,5.

Serafina y la capa negra es un middle-grade muy diferente, me ha sorprendido que fuera tan tenebroso y misterioso teniendo en cuenta el público al que está enfocado. Tenemos una niña distinta al resto, misteriosas desapariciones relacionadas con un hombre que lleva una capa negra, secretos, misterio y algo de fantasía, todo ello perfectamente hilado hasta culminar en un desenlace muy emocionante. Me gusta que el autor vaya dejando pistas por aquí y por allá del hombre de la capa negra para que hasta que no llegues casi al final no lo averigües; a su vez también es genial que no solo se centre en las extrañas desapariciones sino que nos va picando con el pasado y origen de Serafina, con cómo ve ella el mundo y que la familia y la amistad estén tan presentes y sean tan importantes. Todo esto le da mucho más valor a la novela y aunque no me agrado que en algunos momentos no pasara gran cosa y tuviera un ritmo un poco lento, por lo demás me ha resultado muy innovador.
Otra cosa que vais a encontrar es que el libro tiene una prosa muy elegante, con unas pinceladas de fantasía originales y una destreza con las palabras maravillosa, no cuenta con muchos diálogos sino que se centra en describir lo que ve y siente Serafina.

A School Librarian’s take on this book:

Who and what defines good and bad? Twelve year old Serafina tackles this question and many more in Serafina and the Black Cloak. Uniquely set in the historical, Vanderbilt Biltmore Estate and surrounding forests of North Carolina, the author has captivated the essential coming-of-age struggles we all must reconcile: What is normal? Who is a true friend and why is it so difficult to find them? Why am I different?

Although this story is set in 1899 and is historical fiction, its timeless themes are the true nature of a classic novel and will speak to middle school and high school readers (not to mention adults) . The paranormal events surrounding Serafina’s birth—and the basis of this thrilling mystery—address the ageless battle of good versus evil and whether outside forces can (and should) shape who we are.

With its engaging mix of historical setting and magical elements, this thought provoking novel is a perfect vehicle to pique young readers’ interest in historical fiction. Middle school and high school teachers and librarians will find the well-developed characters, the Gilded Age mansion, the chilling cemetery scenes, and the mystical black cloak the perfect combination to motivate discussions and fulfill many Common Core curriculum elements of Language Arts and/or history requirements.

Любимата ми (не) детска книга


„Серафина и черния плащ” попадна съвсем неочаквано в библиотеката ми. Отдавна спрях да чета детски книги, затова и първоначално пропуснах да я включа в списъка си за четене...

цялото ревю може да прочетете в блога ми - https://the-book-tigers-diary-reviews...

Изумена съм. Напоследък чета повече middle grade книги и осъзнавам колко съм изгубила с изключването на тези книги от списъците ми за четене. Толкова са леки и увлекателни и всъщност точно такива са тези така отпускащи почивки от ежедневието. Ако още не сте я прочели ви я препоръчвам сърдечно. <3
