A book that's relevant to almost everyone
on 22 October 2001
This is a funny and touching book which can be read on many levels - aloud to a very small child, or alone by an older child. It covers themes from adventure, courage and reliability, independence, and first love, to acceptance of differences, family crisis, and the importance of education. No child's bookshelf is complete without it.
