Lesson from this story: Always remember that even the littlest thing that you have gotten easily has a shocking price to pay. So be careful on the things that you accept specially those that come from strangers.

Krip Yuson's tale echoes Mahatma Gandhi's "Earth provides enough to satisfy every man's needs, but not every man's greed." Beth Parrocha's art work are amazing!

I picked this up off the free shelf at the library, thinking it was a children's chapter book. After I realized it was about an autistic boy, I decided to read it myself. It offered what I thought to be an easy to understand example of an autistic child and I may keep the book to reference in the future in case my children have questions re: the subject matter. Very quick read.
