Having now read several of Paul Fleischman s books I think I can safely say that readers should anticipate a high level of innovation from his work Fleischman seems generally resistant to the idea of penning a traditional novel and the unconventional fruits of his labor have meant some outstanding contributions to the pantheon of contemporary literature In Graven Images the author links three unrelated short stories together through use of a common theme inanimate objects that in one way or another exert surprising influence on the world around them making and breaking people s lives just as surely as if the objects in uestion had mouths eyes and a brain It makes one pause to consider that anything can become a catalyst for destruction in our lives if we re not careful even something as ostensibly innocuous as a simple graven image In the first short story a town in mourning for a crew of sailors found dead aboard a ship washed ashore find solace in the unmoving unspeaking wooden figurehead of the ship Surely this wooden figure saw what happened though it speaks not of whatever the tragedy may have been The carefully crafted piece of wood eventually draws a bit of a cult following as people come to whisper their deepest darkest secrets in its unhearing ears sure that the figure can be trusted to keep their secrets as well as it has kept the secret of whatever happened that killed all of the crew aboard its ship This cathartic practice of telling secrets to a harmless receptor takes on a sinister edge though when one of the town s residents figures out a way to learn the secrets being told to the carved wooden form Might the answer to the mystery of the dead crew be found on the lips of someone seeking to unburden his or her soul to the wooden figure In story number two a young apprentice cobbler finds his life heading in a new direction when he mistakenly interprets a signal given by a girl working in the grocery as meaningful of her love and devotion to him This changes everything and he immediately goes about trying to find just the right way to express in return the way that he feels about the girl However figuring out the complicated romantic meanings of different kinds of flowers isn t easy and so in mild desperation he turns to the patron saint of cobblers for help hoping that if Saint Crispin wills it he might find true happiness with this girl after all But is the saint said by many to be responsible for watching over cobblers really the one directing events The final story is that of a statue maker named Zorelli whose once thriving business has gone south and left him in meager financial straits He ll have to give up his shop entirely before much longer but his fortunes change when a ghost comes to solicit his work The ghost wants to pay Zorelli a substantial fee to make a statue of him but the odd reuests that the ghost makes as to how he wants the statue to look puzzle Zorelli and after a while he begins to wonder if perhaps he made a mistake by accepting the job at all There s behind the ghost s commissioning of the statue than just the chiseling of a personal sculpture though and as Zorelli nears the completion of the stone monument he also arrives closer to learning the truth about what shocking past deed the ghost has committed and where he received so much money to pay Zorelli in the first place In this edition of Graven Images with a new afterword added by Paul Fleischman I actually think that the afterword might be the most interesting part of the book In it the author gives some great examples of how he comes up with the ideas for his stories and then allows us a background look into the process by which Graven Images was first dreamed up and compiled and how much of a difference the steadfast belief of editor Charlotte Zolotow made in getting this book out onto the market That belief of hers would be vindicated in early 1983 when Graven Images was selected as one of five Newbery Honor books that year putting Paul Fleischman on the map as a promising talent for the future The only other thing I have to say about this book s Newbery connections is that had it actually gone a step higher and won the Newbery Medal instead of an Honor then Paul Fleischman would have beaten his father to the big prize despite obviously having been a novelist for a much shorter time As it turned out Sid Fleischman claimed the Newbery Medal first with The Whipping Boy in 1987 but Paul would taste Newbery gold of his own two years later winning for Joyful Noise Poems for Two Voices in 1989 To date they remain the only parent and child to have ever both won a Newbery Medal and that s a distinction that it s uite possible no other pair will ever match Graven Images is a good book in my opinion not necessarily what I usually think of in a novel recognized by Newbery but certainly worth reading None of the three stories really jumps out at me as definitely better than the other two but if I had to designate one as the best it would probably be the second story Saint Crispin s Flower Fans of Paul Fleischman s esoteric writing style will want to get their hands on a copy of this book though I might recommend a different starting point for those who are new to his body of literature Portrait of an Addict as a Young Man A Memoir young apprentice cobbler finds his

Really enjoyed this audiobook The stories were engaging with great little twists at the end I found Saint Crispin s Follower to be predictable but the telling was still good An added bonus was the author s note telling about how the book and stories came to be This was not present in the original print book but the print book of course does have the illustrations by Andrew Glass that are absent from the audiobook I d to read by Fleischman in this vein if such a thing exists
