I love Brian Deines and Jean Little work so even before reading this book, I was pre-disposed to like it. I must admit however, it isn't my favourite of their works. The story is a cross between realistic fiction and fantasy. I found the premise a little trite. The illustrations are beautiful. The story touches on themes of responsibility, caring for others and self-reliance.
