Sweet, beautifully written, heart warming story by one of my all time favorite writers. I had no idea he wrote this children's book. I know that if I'd read this as a child it would've been one of my all time favorites! It was published by the Estate of Tom Tryon, and I'm so glad they did. I wouldn't have known about this book if it weren't for Goodreads. I'm hoping the Estate will pull a few more books out of his records and publish them too!
