About “Kenneth Oppel Jon Klassen

  • Kenneth Oppel Jon Klassen

    I was born in 1967 in Port Alberni, a mill town on Vancouver Island, British Columbia but spent the bulk of my childhood in Victoria, B.C and on the opposite coast, in Halifax, Nova ScotiaAt around twelve I decided I wanted to be a writer this came after deciding I wanted to be a scientist, and then an architect I started out writing sci fi epics my Star Wars phase then went on to swords and sorcery tales my Dungeons and Dragons phase and then, during the summer holiday when I was fourteen, started on a humorous story about a boy addicted to video games written, of course, during my video game phase It turned out to be quite a long story, really a short novel, and I rewrote it the next summer We had a family friend who knew Roald Dahl one of my favourite authors and this friend offered to show Dahl my story I was paralysed with excitement I never heard back from Roald Dahl directly, but he read my story, and liked it enough to pass on to his own literary agent I got a letter from them, saying they wanted to take me on, and try to sell my story And they did.

  • This was such a strange book The writing wasn t my favorite, which is surprising, because I loved The Boundless by Kenneth Oppel The writing in The Boundless was rich and lively, but the writing in The Nest was a little bit dry for my liking I did enjoy the pictures drawn by illustrator John Klassen Unfortunately though, this book just fell short for me.


  • The theme of this book is that nothing is perfect, but this book is a Liar McLiar, because this book is perfect.This is a wise little tome of fairy fuckery in the guise of a wasp nest It s a magical story, and a kind one, and a giant in few words I wish I had had it to give to my wry and unsentimental 11 year old anxious OCD ridden self, but I m very glad that I had it to give my wry and unsentimental 11 year old anxious OCD ridden daughter My favorite novel back then was The Fairy Rebel by Lynn [...]


  • this is a case of good book, wrong reader i gave it a three because i liked it, but i didn t crazy like it i ve liked oppel s YA novels in the past, and i was excited that this was going to be available at BEA, but when i saw it was middle grade instead of YA i was a bit wary i m just a little too old to appreciate books for the 8 12 age range picture books, yes YA, yes, but middle grade is the overlooked middle child in my reading spectrum, and it has to have a pretty solid hook to win my love [...]



  • People lie and say they don t want perfect But really they do Perfect bodies and minds and comfy chairs and cars and vacations and boyfriends and girlfriends and pets and children Above all, children Steve s new baby brother is anything but perfect the poor thing has a congenital disorder, and may not survive Everyone in the household is suffering from the strain, but no one than Steve He s been having vivid, disturbing dreams of a figure standing at the end of his bed One night, his dreams see [...]


  • He le do este libro en pr cticamente una sentada Y no me ha dejado indiferente.El nido es de esos libros que transcienden, que apelan a nuestros sentimientos y los retuercen Es una historia dura, apta para lectores de cualquier edad, pues cada uno sacar una lectura diferente Se mezclan elementos emotivos, valores de familia, al igual que un continuo sentimiento tenebroso que acompa a la novela desde el primer momento y que se ve acentuado con las ilustraciones.Me ha parecido un libro incre ble D [...]


  • Oh, how I love middle grade horror It s a very specific breed of book, you know Most people on the street might think of the Goosebumps books or similar ilk when they think of horror stories for the 10 year old set, but that s just a small portion of what turns out to be a much greater, grander set of stories Children s book horror takes on so many different forms You have your post apocalyptic, claustrophobic horrors, likeZ for Zachariah by Robert C O Brien You have your everyday playthings tur [...]


  • Este es un libro de verdadero thriller psicol gico para personas que reci n est n entrando al g nero Se trata sobre Steven, un ni o que sufre de trastorno obsesivo compulsivo y cuya familia tiene un nuevo bebe que esta mal del coraz n y no tiene muchas esperanzas de vida Un d a Steve tiene un sue o de unas avispas que le dicen que pueden curar a su hermanito y es ah donde el mundo de nuestro protagonista cambiar A pesar de estar escrito desde la perspectiva de un ni o, por lo que se utiliza un l [...]


  • HOW is this appropriate for children This is intense and terrifying Not elementary school fare in my opinion Frankly, I m surprised I didn t have nightmares after finishing it Would not recommend for children under 14, sensitive children or those with anxiety, anyone with a bee allergy or anyone with an Epipen I thought this was a bizarre story with depressing, heavy themes and a blurb that provides no insight or warning as to where this is heading Here it is view spoiler A boy with anxiety and [...]


  • Tengo que reconocer que ha sido una lectura muy adictiva Una novela bizarra, muy fresca y con grandes dosis de intriga No me esperaba para nada ese protagonista ni el desarrollo de la trama Me ha gustado mucho porque me sorprend a con cada p gina que le a Si te gustan las historias atrevidas y no te asustas f cilmente esta te fascinar.


  • If you have a fear of wasps, this book will terrify you If you don t have a fear of wasps, this book will still terrify you because you ll have developed a fear of wasps Quite possibly the scariest middle grade book I ve ever read.


  • When an adult can t put a book down that is geared to 8 12 year olds, that is really saying something And I could not put this book down.The main character in this book, Steve, is an anxiety ridden boy who copes with his fear in a very OCD manner, going through ritual behaviors like hand washing and repeating lists Adding to his anxiety, his parents have just returned from the hospital with his newborn brother,Theo Theo suffers from severe disabilities and life threatening conditions Tension, wo [...]


  • It s really hard to tell you what The Nest is about, because, well it s strange Steve, whose family has been struggling to cope with his sickly new born brother, finds his dreams suddenly invaded by angels who offer to fix his brother But Steve realizes that his angel is actually a wasp queen All he has to do is say yes to her and his problems will be fixed, but that s such a difficult and powerful word.The best words, to me, that describe The Nest are these strange, haunting, lovely, sad, dry, [...]



  • What a fast, interesting and suspenseful story Read it in one afternoon because I was hooked I highly enjoyed my time reading this one.


  • Rese a completa anitavelabooksEs dif cil hacer una rese a sin poder hablar mucho de la trama y personajes, por eso voy a dar mi opini n de forma general sin decir mucho m s de lo que la sinopsis desvela El nido es una historia que me daba mucha curiosidad por todo ese misterio que la rodea, y una vez la lees, entiendes el motivo de ese misterio Es una historia para leer a ciegas y de esa forma puedes adentrarte de lleno en la historia Y eso que yo suelo leer este tipo de historias, pero con esta [...]


  • Kenneth Oppel and Jon Klassen are both titans of children s literature Their first collaboration is a creepy confection sure to delight fans of CORALINE I hate to make the same comparison as the marketing, but this is one of those cases where it is true.Steve s baby brother is sick It is a congenital problem, and he needs surgery, and he might not ever be completely normal That s when Steve first dreams about the angels, the wasps, who offer to help At first it seems like his dreams might just b [...]


  • 3.5 ish TW anxiety and OCD I wrote a very thought out review and it got deleted so I m bitter and not rewriting it


  • First of all, this book is terrifying If I had read it when I was twelve I would probably have been scarred for life, and I would never have felt safe around wasps ever again The fact that The Nest was extremely disquieting was not really a problem, I actually liked that about the book, but all of the suspense fell short in the end It is unclear whether the main character, Steve, has a mental illness or not, which I liked in the beginning, but that ambivalence flattened out the ending There was [...]


  • Wow So if SKELLIG by David Almond is Santa Claus, then THE NEST is the Krampus Sort of the same in principle, but ending on a much brutal note Jon Klassen s black on black illustrations add just the right amount of ominous creepiness, and the cover both look and feel add to it as well.


  • My first audiobook, and this was WEIRDFirst things first, This book should not be categorized as middle gradeI don t see why this book falls under that category Just because the protagonist is some 10 years old Huh, How about marking The Book Thief as middle grade then The Nest is of a magical realism story, and I wouldn t recommend it for kids.Despite what the cover and title makes you believe, The Nest is not some spooky mystery It is told through the pov of Steven Steven has a sister Nicole [...]


  • I actually listened to the audiobook and it was thrilling and captivating The story starts out somewhat seemingly normal Steven, a tween aged boy has to deal with his anxieties, his OCD, and his family drama His newborn brother Theo, was born with some congestive disorders and the doctors are very concerned with his prognosis As his parents and baby brother frequently travel to and from the hospital, Steven is forced to grow up rather quickly, often overseeing the care his younger sister Along t [...]


  • This review has also been posted on The Social PotatoWarning this book contains scary bugs.If you know me, you know I hate bugs I am a scardy cat and will hide in my room in the presence of one Why did I read the book then you ask Because KENNETH OPPEL, goddamnit I adored the Airborn series as a kid so I decided I wanted to read books by Oppel, and here we are I am so glad I read this book in spite of my fear of bugs because it is so well written and so adorable and filled with many wonderful m [...]


  • 5 5The books which I award the highest ratings are the books that make me FEEL.This book, though small in size, was great in substance The brief synopsis intrigued me The Nest is about an older brother, Steve, desperate to help his ailing newborn brother, enlists the help of an unlikely sort a wasp queen She tells him they can help his baby brother, but little does Steve know that there are sinister undertones in that promise Strongly reminiscent of Coraline and David Bowie s Labyrinth, although [...]


  • No matter how many times I tried to convince myself The Nest is set in the middle of summer when light and color are at their peak, I never really believed it and could only imagine the story in the darkest, bleakest parts of winter when the world is devoid of color.Studies have shown that sadness can affect our vision, making the world appear gray, by impairing the neural processes involved in color perception The effect is most pronounced in depression.Color and seasons seem like things that [...]


  • El Nido es una lectura gil que se lee de una sentada pero que contiene buenos mensajes sobre crecimiento, aceptaci n y lucha contra tus miedos internos Los libros infantiles pueden llegar a ser muy extra os, y esta podr a ser tu pr xima lectura si te gust Coraline, libros de Holly Black o Donde viven los monstruos.Rese a completa en THE BEST READ YET BLOG


  • This book has gotten some hype, but it s well warranted It s a horror story designed for middle grade readers The beautiful book features illustrations by Jon Klassen It reminded me of multiple stories that I ve read including Coraline by Neil Gaiman and a story by Karen Russell can t remember the title of the story.This is actually quite a scary book, but I recommend it highly Well written, innovative and creepy.


  • 4.5 5Una lectura que te eriza la piel m s de una vez T trico y escalofriante en la dosis perfecta que se superpone a la parte sentimental de la historia Buen simo Rese a eternamenteentiniebla
