It is also a metaphor for living. We have choices in our lives. We can take the simple and conventional way through life and its turbulences, or we can step beyond and recognise how each part of our story contributes to the solution and helps us come to terms with the chaos. This book has so many facets, it needs to be in every person's book collection to be re-read at different times in our lives. A gem.
It is about three stories interwoven in the world of stories starting and ending in one of the three stories. May seem confusing but it has devices helping the readers understanding what's going on. Such as different style of illustration, dialogue vs. narration in distinctive formats.
I think it only gets complicated when you try to analyse the book. Kids will just get it naturally straight away.
The book is great for use in primary school and makes children really think about the classic story. David Wiesner's books get the imagination pumping.
