This is one of my favorite books! It was really hard for me to put this book down and when I came to the end I didn't want it to stop. A wonderful book, kind-of like "That Printer of Udells" by Harold Bell Wright. (One of Ronald Reagan's favorite books)
Also Lamplighter Publishing has tons of other books that are very enjoyable and reach a wide selection of ages,.
