Classic Kids book
on 28 May 2008
As I've just turned forty and have no kids I can appreciate this book from a different view point.
I don't want to imagine how barren the world would be for the child who doesn't love this book.
With a spare use of the pen and some wonderful pictures it conjures up a place similar but just different enough to our world to pull you in.
In my work I can sort through a thousand books a day and this just jumped out at me and I had to read it. Full of character.
The message is dare to be different & give friendship a chance even if you're 'supposed' to eat each other.
We should drop copies of this book all over the Middle East/Africa/any where there's a damn war as soon as we can...........
