    1. Racing along New York City streets one March 1945 day, Linus Muller stops to catch his breath when his attention is suddenly arrested by a familiar face on a poster. Noting the address on the poster, Linus changes course and sets off for it instead.Flashback to September 1943: Linus is 12 years old and has just inherited his older brother's shoes and his job delivering groceries for his parent's shop. In fact, with six kids and a war on, everything is a hand me down, except for Linus's older bro [...]


    2. Few foreign books for children wind up translated into English, perhaps not surprisingly given the plethora of titles published each year by American and English-speaking authors from Canada, England, Australia, and other countries. Often the ones that do make it for release in the U.S. are special titles, and that's the case with the new historical novel Mister Orange by Dutch author Truus Matti. This title is especially unusual because, although written originally in Dutch and first published [...]


    3. A delightful historical novel set in New York City during World War II that sensitively portrays a young boy's discovery of the power of art and family life on the American home front. A Dutch translation, winner of the 2014 Mildred L. Batchelder Award.



    4. One Sentence Review: Just the most charming little book, and I can attest that as a New Yorker Ms. Matti gets all the details of the city right (you'd never known the book was a translation).


    5. Meh. Not bad, but also not memorable. This novel is short enough to read in an hour or two, but I didn't end up invested in any of the characters. Perhaps that had to do with the translation, but overall I felt like it was too generic for me to really care what was going on. By far the most interesting character was the artist, "Mr. Orange" himself, but the scenes with him were brief and rather few. I could see myself recommending this to readers looking for something short, or those who are obs [...]


    6. Growing up I couldn't understand my dad's insistence that the walls of our house be white. Now I realize that as an architect he was influenced by the minimalist Bauhaus style. His company followed the Bauhaus movement that believed all arts should work together with design. My dad loves the Bauhaus bent toward clean lines, simplicity, and few decorations. He also had a few abstract paintings hanging on walls that usually had a design element I could not understand or see. I grew up seeing artis [...]


    7. I'm not sure what I was expecting, I checked this book out for a class I'm currently taking for my MLIS and honestly forgot what it was about. It was a short, but moving story set at the height of WWII. It gave a good peak into what it was like to be home while others were away. And of course it teachers readers that in order to win any battle you have to first imagine that it's possible.


    8. This is a beautiful story about how a war affects a family and the friendship developed between the protagonist and 'Mr Orange'. The book has everything I should like, e.g. Piet Mondriaan and his neo-plastic works, WWII and relationships but it just doesn't click. I don't know if it is the translation or what. I wish that I liked it better.



    9. Plot Summary:Translated from Dutch, this book is about a young delivery boy who takes over a grocery delivery route after his eldest brother, Albie, leaves to fight in World War II. Through letters from Albie and his interactions with artist Mister Orange, Linus Muller learns the devastating effects war has on families and victims as well as the importance of having an optimistic view of the future.Critical Analysis: Mister Orange is an enjoyable coming-of-age story in where the protagonist quic [...]


    10. This novel, set in New York City, opens and closes in March 1945 with Linus, in his new shoes, distracted enough by a familiar image in a poster to attend the art show it advertises. The narrative then moves to September 1943 where we learn that Linus's older brother, Albie, is off to war in new boots, leaving a cascade of hand-me-down shoes for his younger siblings to grow into. Linus, who promises to mind Albie's comic books while he fulfills his superhero-like soldier role, develops a superhe [...]

    12. This book is for student 8-12. This book would be for intermediate readers. It is a good book about what happens during the war and what it was like in the states. The book was about a boy who has a big family and owns a grocery store. The boys brother goes in the war and everyone responsibility changes. The main character Linus be friends a customer that he delivers oranges to. He cannot pronounce his name so he calls him Mr. Orange. This book has a few parts that remind me of growing up.

    13. In this novel, Truus Matti explores the history of World War II and the life and artwork of Piet Mondrian.

Linus has the chore of making deliveries throughout the city dragging the heavy grocery cart behind him.

    17. There is much to like about this fictionalized account of the New York City sojourn of artist Piet Mondrian who fled his homeland for his art. Interested in painting in a different style than his predecessors, he played with shape, color, and rhythm. Although the book deals with this unique artist's take on the power of art and music to change lives, influence others, and express emotions, it also traces the coming of age of Linus Muller whose beloved older brother, Albie, volunteers for the arm [...]


    18. I really loved this book. I would put on a boogie woogie compilation or an Andrews Sisters based playlist on Rdio and sit and read this wonderful story by Truus Matti. It is a tale of a boy, who's older brother goes to Europe to fight the Nazis, and is finding his own place now that he has become one of the older kids in the house. As he takes over the job of delivering groceries for his father's store, he meets an artist, who he calls Mr. Orange. Mr. Orange is a little sparkle in an otherwise d [...]

    22. In the year of 1943 in Manhattan Linus Muller worked at the family grocery store. When his older brother Albie had to leave to fight in World War II. Linus takes his grocery deliveries to deliver to people but one of his customers was an artist from Europe he has a crate of oranges that he has to deliver every other week. While he was delivering he had some conflicts with the man who he knows as Mister Orange they both talk about the war and what can happen in the future and if they can have fre [...]


    23. The winner of the 2013 Batchelder Award for translation is a much stiffer affair than I'd anticipated. I appreciate the insights into Piet Mondrian's philosophy as translated into his paintings and construction of furniture using reclaimed or found materials and I thought Matti used her protagonist, Linus, effectively in illustrating how Mondrian's ideas opened up new ways of looking at color, architecture, music and cityscapes. The rest of the plot, with Linus' family worrying about his brother [...]


    24. In this Batchelder Award winning short novel, Linus has taken over the grocery delivery job because his big brother Albert is in Europe fighting during WWII. One of his customers is called Mr. Orange because Linus delivers a case of oranges each week to this artist from Europe - he is Piet Mondrian. Set in NYC, this Dutch import seems very authentic, with an engaging main character/narrator and an emotionally resonant story. Teachers could find this useful as a class readaloud, and readers might [...]


    25. From the first couple of pages I was hooked! One of the best openings I've read in a while, and then a moving story about the power of imagination, which has made me completely rethink something I thought was worn dry; Mondrian art works are so parodied they are almost wallpaper it seems to me, but this book got me really excited about Mondrian's art (a HUGE surprise!), and like on the best books can, gave me a new way to look at the world.The translation is excellent, and the cover artwork and [...]


    26. Multicultural Intermediate Book:This was a great read. I really love learning about World War II, and I've never read a WWII story like this one. It's text-to-text connection for me was to My Brother Sam Is Dead, another children's book about a child who realizes just how real war really is. I connected with this personally because of my interest in World War II, so this was a great read for me. I think a text-to-world connection is that this book hits many subjects kids need to think about: his [...]


    27. The story of the Dutch painer, Mondrian, as seen through the eyes of a young New York boy during World War II. As Linus delivers oranges to Mondrian once a week from his father's grocery store, he and Mr. Orange (aka Mondrian) share ideas about art and life as Linus learns to see the reality of the world without losing hope for the future. The author paints a picture of artist who relished the future -painting in strong colors, composing a painting as if piecing together a puzzle, and enjoying t [...]


    28. I hadn't heard of artist Piet Mondrian until I read about him at the end of this story. I looked up his painting Victory Boogie-Woogie and I love it! So much like the cover (which is why I was drawn to the book in the first place!)Accessible book for 3rd-6th graders that really digs in to the pain that war brought to families of those who were sent off to fight, but does so in a way which isn't disturbing to younger readers. And I just adore the relationship between Linus and Mister Orange. :-)
