The Seven ChairsBook - 1998
"In his life he made seven chairs. The first chair, made when he was a boy, was a small three-legged stool. It wobbled. When it was done he put it in front of the hearth fire. It became the property of the calico cat." - The Seven Chairs So begins the simple and moving story of a chairmaker and the many lives he touched with his work. Helen Lanteigne's spare and evocative prose has the timeless quality of a classic story. Through her carefully chosen words, she allows each of the seven chairs to take on a life of it's own, and what we see is limited only by our own imaginations. Maryann Kovalski's exquisite illustrations are the perfect complement to this remarkable story. Through her meticulous research and imaginative execution of the art, she is able to offer an additional and integral piece of the puzzle.
