Ken Stark is an award-winning book illustrator/painter, editorial cartoonist, and freehand graphic artist who has mostly lived and worked in rural Illinois and Wisconsin. The lifelong artist is largely self-taught, having studied only briefly at Art Center School in Los Angeles. He has written and/or illustrated five picture books. Marching to Appomattox: The Footrace That Ended the Civil War is the winner of the 2011 Beacon of Freedom Award from the Williamsburg Regional Library and the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, presented annually to a book that introduces history to children in a historically accurate and engaging manner, as well as a Wisconsin Library Association Outstanding Children’s Title and a New York State Reading Association's Charlotte Award nominee. Stark’s research for this nonfiction, multigenerational book took him to the village of Appomattox Court House in Virginia where he imagined being a witness to the surrender. Stark also wrote and illustrated his childhood memoir, Oh, Brother!, and illustrated Growing Seasons by Elsie Lee Splear, Orphan Train by Verla Kay, and Seeing the Elephant: A Story of the Civil War by Pat Hughes (A Bank Street Best Children's Book of the Year and NCSS-CBC Notable Trade Book in the Field of Social Studies). He has spoken at the Wisconsin State Reading Association’s annual meeting, the Wisconsin Book Festival and the Civil War Museum, Kenosha, Wisconsin, among other venues, as well as to student and community groups. All of the paintings for Ken Stark's books have been shown in museums and galleries and are available for future exhibition. Stark and his wife/research assistant Chris live and work in an 1800s log house they reconstructed in southwestern Wisconsin.
"Every crunch, skitter, squeak, and pop is expertly outlined with a brilliant flare that will most certainly elicit a “yuck” or “gross” from many a reader, while the action will keep their hearts racing and eyes glued to the pages."
"The story is packed with horrifying moments but the author also gives us a chance to exhale and laugh too."
HAROLD WAS ALWAYS A MAN WITH A PLAN. Out of the house after high school, and take the world by storm. But the storm fought back, and now Harold is right back where he started. All the way back to the room he'd occupied as a child.
But he's not alone in that room. Something resides there with him, and it's had a dozen years on its own. A dozen years to grow. A dozen years to multiply. And now that Harold is back, he'll have to face his worst nightmare. And if he loses, it might just be his last night on earth.

Negatief, positief, neutraal: we zetten een review altijd online. We controleren wel eerst of ’ie voldoet aan onze reviewvoorwaarden en niet nep is. We controleren ook of ’ie is geschreven door iemand die het artikel heeft gekocht via bol.com en zetten dit er dan bij. De controles gebeuren automatisch, al kijken er soms mensen mee. Bol.com betaalt niet voor reviews. Als een reviewer door een andere partij is vergoed, staat dit in de review zelf.
