Artikelbeschreibung
Gertrude Stein’s only children’s book tells the story of Rose, a little girl determined to find her place in a “world that was round and you could go on it around and around.” Rose’s search for identity leads her to friendships with dogs, rabbits, lions, and other children, to carve “Rose is a Rose is a Rose” around the trunk of a tree, and finally on a quest (accompanied only by a blue garden chair) to the top of a mountain, where “everywhere she would see everywhere and she would sit on that chair, yes there.”

The World Is Round is much more than a book for children: Stein’s inimitable prose style finds the perfect foil in this child’s mercurial mind with its sudden impulses and ever-changing conception of the world. An Afterword written by Edith Thacher Hurd illuminates the events surrounding the original 1939 publication of the book and offers rare photos of the real Rose with her friends Miss Stein and the dogs Pepe and Love. Included also is the correspondence between Stein and illustrator Clement Hurd, whose charming linoleum blocks grace this first trade publication of the Arion Press edition.

A classic reminder of Gertrude Stein’s gifts of humor and imagination, The World Is Round is an invaluable treat for readers of all ages and is sure to delight even the most discriminating child.
