    1. You can t learn anything talking cause you re just saying stuff you already know You ve got to be quiet to learn Paintings from the Cave, P 32 Gary Paulsen starts right off in this book by dealing with some heavy issues in the opening Note from the Author He mentions the dark nature of his own youth, and admits that when he was a kid it was only literature and dogs that allowed him to see the light of hope in his life just enough to give him reason to keep moving forward toward that day when he [...]


    2. I started this book thinking that the three novellas it contained would end up being so short that I wouldn t be able to get much out of them Never having read anything by this author before, I definitely underestimated him Gary Paulsen carefully crafts three different worlds, all the realities of three children These kids have known hurt and heartache than most people have in a lifetime and shouldn t have had to go through But Paulsen doesn t present them in a way that calls for immediate answ [...]


    3. It s almost impossible to go wrong with any book written by Gary Paulsen, and this one is no exception The three separate stories all deal with similar themes of very difficult childhood experiences in which dogs and or art play a major healing role Of course, these stories mirror Gary Paulsen s own childhood, about which he has written extensively As a dog lover, I relate especially well to the important therapeutic role that dogs play in Gary Paulsen s books, both fiction and nonfiction e.g My [...]


    4. Let me begin by saying that I read this book in one day, a windy day with my dogs curled beside me How could I not love this book The first story Man of the Iron Heads was really sad yet so true I am reminded of a student who walked by my house every day One day he got in trouble in class and had to miss lunch He was sobbing because he was missing lunch Upon discussion about the fight in class and his reaction to missing lunch it turned out that he was locked out of the house all day AND locked [...]


    5. Three separate stories about three different teenagers going through three totally different and yet similarly painful existences All three give you such a clear picture of what their daily life is like and how it is so different than mine It s a book for all of humanity to read I ve heard Gary Paulsen speak of his hard childhood and give great kudos to a man that can relate to readers on paper I picked this books up because it made the Lonestar reading list But was encouraged to read it when I [...]


    6. This was somewhat of a surprise book to read While the book description gave some idea about the book contents, actually reading the book was another adventure This was a well written book about the not so happy times of life, the road of hard knocks, and life that we want to ignore or forget Not everyone has a life that is described on the pages, yet there is always a story to tell A good read and a recommendation for anyone who needs a good wake up call The happy note of the book is that each [...]

    13. Gary Paulsen has always been everyone s favorite writer of middle grade fiction This is the man who owns a sense of humor that is truly wonderful, and who brings his readers fun and insight with every single title he pens But this this new book from the master is a wonderfully emotional and stunning work that will leave readers breathless.Paulsen has spoken about his own upbringing as being extremely difficult until his art and his dogs saved his life and brought him into a wonderful future He m [...]

Paulsen, G 2011 Paintings from the cave New York Random House Wendy Lamb Books 163 pp ISBN 978 0 385 74684 7 Hardcover 15.99.Gary Paulsen lived virtually alone from a very early age Often out by himself in the woods or under the care of someone other than his parents, Paulsen knows what it is like to figure out how to survive and he has many books not just Hatchett that prove this Paintings from the Cave are three novellas that show three troubled youth, Jake, Jo, and Jamie, and what they do to [...]


    15. I had seen the name Gary Paulsen many time before but I had never read anything by written by him When I saw this collection of three novellas I snapped it up and read it in a few days This book is so beautiful and so complicated that you need to take your time with it It is also so horrific and so incredibly sad that you need some time to process each of the stories on their own before moving to the last Paulsen creates three very different worlds and three very different perspective of the wor [...]


    16. Frist off I generally find Gary Paulsen not to be an author I like I perfer emtional stories with definte endings and I am not big fan of realsitic fiction However as Paulsen explains in his note that is not his story and is not his purpose for this book This book was written to answer the question of how do you deal with the ugly today So many heres and nows that are cold and ugly and raw and cruel and vicious with little hope unstable environments with nothing and no one to protect and raise [...]


    17. I picked this up from our local library for a few reasons 1 I was waiting for another book to arrive to read to my sons 13 and 11 , and needed something short just to tide us over til then 2 I read some of Paulsen s previous work, and knew him to be a strong author 3 This was not only short, it was separated into three stories I figured it would be perfect.I like the book, but I did not realize the content of the stories beforehand So that all of you know that may want to read it to your kids, o [...]


    18. Paulsen has written a very gritty book that is close to him considering his own troubled childhood, but was inspired by the experiences of his readers These stories consider the question of how a child goes on and keeps hope when life is terrible not the I can t believe I got an F terrible, but the how do I keep myself alive and not give in to total despair terrible Paulsen has been writing survival stories for a long time, but these survival stories are different they are heartrending I find it [...]


    19. I ve been relying on trusted authors lately Jordan Sonnenblick and Gary Paulsen have never let me down, and this was no exception Most of us know Paulsen as an adventure writer, with Hatchet and Brian s Winter coming immediately to mind But he is also hilarious see How Angel Peterson Got His Name and a master of drama, as seen in this, his latest work.This is a quick read in terms of vocabulary and sentence structure even the lowest readers in my class would be able to read it on their own Howev [...]


    20. I enjoyed listening to these three novellas by Paulsen From his introduction to the last sentence of the last story his writing was both intense and real to the very core, but also hopeful Although his stories took place in worlds children shouldn t have to call home Paulsen gave his characters a lifeline through art and through dogs, providing a shining beacon to the characters in their bleak situations.The introduction made me tear up a bit, the way Paulsen describes the relationship between p [...]


    21. Gary Paulsen, of Hatchet fame, has written three wonderful portraits of young adults who are not just touched by trouble They flee from it and struggle to build lives in which they can find solace and purpose.The award winning author embarked on writing these stories because of conversations with young adults who spoke of lives very different from those of the characters in his books Paulsen, too, came from what is called a troubled childhood and succeeded, he says, because of art and dogs The s [...]


    22. This is not a book for the tender hearted The stories will put you into situations you pray your children students never have to experience and will make you weep for the ones that do.Three separate stories about three different teenagers going through three totally different and yet similarly painful existences I won t read it again, but it ll forever be burned into my brain.My Class Recommendation Might be a good book recommendation for younger teens with tough home lives A good suggestion for [...]


    23. Paulsen delivers stories with emotional impact in Paintings from the Cave three novellas Paulsen known for surviving a difficult childhood himself, presents three short novellas for young people in similar difficult circumstances and offering hope that someday this will end The first story, Man of the Iron heads, is the most heartbreakingly grim picture of life in a ghetto I have ever read I would love to see this story fleshed out to a full novel In Jo Jo, the dog faced girl, the main character [...]


    24. This was a very short, sad collection of novellas Each story tells about a young teen who lives in the inner city who has to deal with a bad home life, hunger, and other major issues The first story is aobut a kid who is trying to stay away from a drug dealer who rules his neighborhood He befriends a man who is an artist and is given pizza and money in exchange for sitting for him The second is about a girl who has dogs as her only friends, but she meets a girl who is lonely as well, but for a d [...]


    25. If you ve read a lot of Paulsen, you know that he writes a lot of survival and animal stories, but these three novellas deal with these themes in such a raw, heart wrenching, and truly unsettling fashion Since Paulsen is so open about his horrible upbringing, running away, having to be responsible for himself, it leads me to think that s why he chose to set so many books in the literal wilderness, and so many of his characters are from broken homes Reminiscent of the autobiographical My Life in [...]


    26. This book has three different mini books in them Each one takes place in a bad time or in a bad place or the people are going through troubled times I really like these stories because when you finish one you want it to keep going because you get to know the character so much and you start to like and respect them Sometimes you feel sorry for them because in the situation they are in and what has gone on in the past with them There is not a dull moment in these books You always want to know what [...]


    27. When I was teaching 6th grade, Gary Paulsen s book Hatchet was one of the books we included in our Reading class I enjoyed it as much as my students and went on to read several other books by him, so I was excited when I saw his newest book Paintings from the Cave It contains three short stories which take place in an tough urban area Paulsen transports you into the lives of the young people who live there and makes you really care about what happens to them You ll find this book in the Young Ad [...]
