    1 thought on “Yakov and the Seven Thieves

    1. I was skeptical when I saw the author listed as Madonna Then, I opened the book to find lush, lovely images that enticed me to purchase it.I need not have worried the story is lovely and Gennady Spirin is one of my favorite illustrators artist.A cobbler by the name of Yakov has one child, a son who is gravely ill Despite all attempts to cure him, Yakov and his wife, Olga, grow increasingly frightened when their son is slipping away Hearing of a man of healing who lives in the last house of their [...]

    2. Maybe an extra star for the illustrations.Gennady Spirin is an illustrator I love, and it astonished me that he had worked on a book with Madonna The story is not the worst book I have read but it desperately needs editing The tone is all over the place, at times suggesting a mode of self consciousness which is anachronistic The descriptions of the thieves are cloying in an attempt to be humourous one thief s attributes rhyme in a sort of triplet, and the rest are depicted in ordinary prose, so [...]

    3. Yakov and the Seven Thieves by Madonna and illustrated by Gennady Spirin is about a man named Yakov who had a young son named Mikhail who was very ill His illness was a mystery and only a miracle could save him So, he and his wife Olga decided to seek advice from a wise old man who lived in the last house at the edge of the village Yakov arrived at the house and met both the wise old man and his grandson Pavel The wise old man then told Yakov he would pray to heaven, not realizing that his praye [...]

    4. This book was slightly better than The Adventures of Abdi, but I still found it rather unappealing The fairy tale inspired story is a wonderful start it channels a certain Hans Christian Andersen vibe with its focus on prayer and a child protagonist who must be saved by its caring parents , but I found the choice of illustrative style to not match well with the story By naming the protagonist Yakov, they immediately place the story in Eastern Europe, a setting which is further compounded by the [...]

    5. I ve been hearing this rumor about Madonna Why has she remained famous all these years Oh well, coz she paid the devil her soul I dunno if it s true.But then, after reading one of her children s books, I think it s not true She just emphasized on the power of prayer.Set in a European place, Yakov and the Seven Thieves, is a story that gives us a lessonat no matter how bad a person is, the gates of Heaven can still be opened The main character is Yakov, who is having a sick son named Mikhail He s [...]

    6. Very cute, with wonderful illustrations by Russian born, New Jersey artist Gennady Spirin The front flap explains that the story is inspired by the Baal Shem Tov, a great teacher who lived in the Ukraine in the 18th century The tone of the story seems to match this other era, other worldliness It s not quite a fairy tale, but there are definite elements of that in both the story and the illustrations Anyone who listens to Madonna s lyrics must recognize an open minded spirituality at the center [...]

    7. Each of her stories is as precious as the rest Madonna writes these stories in a wonderful way which appeals to adults as well as to young children.In this story, Yakov and Olga s son is very sick and Yakov does not believe he will live much longer Heeding the direction of Olga, Yakov headed to the house of the Old Wise Man, needing a miracle Ultimately, the man needed the help of seven thieves from town in order to heal Yakov s son.The old man said that it is only by acknowledging the faults we [...]

    8. ISENG Penasaran awalnya Ingin tahu bagaimana seorang Madonna menulis sebuah buku sekalipun itu buku anak anak.Dua bintang untuk kisahnya Klasik, simpel, tetapi sayangnya pesan moral yang disampaikan kurang nendang Padahal saya mengharapkan pesan moral yang lebih di balik tujuh pencuri unik ini.Total untuk buku ini tiga bintang Satu bintang datangnya dari ilustrasinya yang cukup wah , pas dengan porsi cerita di setiap halaman.Salut untuk Madonna yang terjun di bidang penulisan seperti ini.

    9. I have had this since I was probably thirteen My mom bought it for me and I thought it was the coolest thing but never actually read it I finally have read it today after so many years of staring at it from my bed It was an interesting book,very different,style wise for myself Not something I am use to reading It had of an old time feel to it I enjoyed the book for what it was Probably not something I d go to again unless reading to my little cousins But it was a nice little read.

    10. My children and I absolutely LOVE this book Yes, I know, I know, it IS by Madonna She simply has retold and old Ukranian storybut with fantastically beautiful illustrations that make one want to cry This story itself is so redeeming and sweet and has a wonderful message I bought this at the book fair, and paid 20 for it, which is out of my league for a childrens book, but we have been very satisfied, and I have NO buyers remorse for this one I recommend this book to everyone

    11. This is one my favorite childhood story ever Yakov, as a loving parent, afraid that the grim reaper might take his son s life for eternity He struggled to find a way to free his son from the gate of death However, the way to cure his son is really strange and considered dangerous.I found The Seven Thieves are really, really unique Too bad there s only a little description about each characters mentioned in the book Anyway, the graphic s great.

    12. rrrr.h ngeraba dan atau sedikit ga setuju sama the old man yang bilang kemampuan para pencuri yang akhirnya bisa membuka gerbang langit dan membuat keajaiban menyembuhkan Mikhailtapiiiijadi lihat ke diri sendiriInsyaaAllah tidak berkelakuan senakal ketujuh pencuri di cerita ini, tapi masih sangat jauh untuk dibilang shalihahDoa2ku, apakah yang termasuk bisa membuka gerbang langit Anyway, love the illustration.assic

    13. I have to say I like Madonna s children s books much better than I like her musical career, or even who she presents herself as in public The pictures are fantastic, and even though I am not Christian in the least I did find this story cute in a way I never thought I would say about anything in connection with Madonna.

    14. Retelling a folk tale is harder than it might seem As well, you need to have experience with the craft of writing, especially if it is a book for children.The illustrations by Gennady Spirin are beautiful They are rich in color and detail, helping to keep this book from sinking farther than the author s writing should have allowed it to sink.

    15. Long, devoid of magic, and an ending whose moral was needlessly spelled out If this is based on the Baal Shem Tov which I haven t read then I m even disappointed because Madonna s task should have been that much easier.

    16. Not my favorite, but my young daughter was able to explain it s message as to why the wise old man would seek the town s thieves and pickpockets to help him unlock the gates of Heaven and save a small boy from death.

    17. Liked the story and again, the artwork is great , but the power of prayer thing isn t for me I even think this book sends the wrong message i.e prayer can heal the sick The introduction of the thieves was very funny, so still three stars.

    18. This was a horrible book The only reason I am giving it one star is because of the illustrations, which deserve many stars.This is a presumptious book without much thought Bleck, bleck, bleck.

    19. Buku ini dipersembahkan oleh Madonna kepada semua anak anak nakal dimanapun berada.Apakah aku anak nakal Emang.

    20. I am not a great fan of Madonna, the singer, but I really like her voice I must say this is a delightful book, well thoughtout, good story, wonderful illustrations it is well worth the read.

    21. The story is worth 2 stars at the most, while the illustrations are worth 5 I ll have to average that out to 3 I guess

    22. Tanner gave it 5 starsLogan gave it 3 starsMax gave it 1 starWho knew Madonna was a children s author

    23. Outstanding illustrations rate 5 stars Madonna s retelling of what reads like a folk tale is good but not outstanding.

    24. I was actually looking for a good story since it had a good start, but it suddenly ended Would have been better if the story was longer Great artwork Still think the story could have been better.
