Gr. 2-5. In Schmidt's picture-book retelling of Nathaniel Hawthorne's story, young Ethan grows to manhood in a small New Hampshire village within view of the Great Stone Face in the granite cliffs. He learns of the prophecy connected with the face--a person will be born who resembles the carving and then go on to live a noble life. On several occasions the villagers feel that the prophecy has come to pass, but each time Ethan realizes that the person's character is flawed. Much later Ethan's granddaughter recognizes that it is Ethan himself who looks like the noble image. The text is clear and succinct, with a stately rhythm that lends itself to reading aloud, and Farnsworth's beautifully rendered oil paintings reflect both the nineteenth-century New England setting as well as the elegant tone of the text. The artist excels at landscapes, but his faces are also wonderfully impressive. The intended audience will probably be unfamiliar with both Hawthorne and the original story, but this aptly told version will spark much discussion about character and a life well lived.
