I must confess to my nepotistic 5 star rating. Bill Higginbotham (who passed away in 1994) was my maternal grandfather and even though we weren't very close I have fond memories of when he and Grandma would come to visit us. Grandpa would take me to the park and he would sit and "whittle" while I played. The figures he left are proudly displayed at my mother's house and greatly charished by our family.
This book is a legacy to me as well as an important lesson that you are never too old to perfec
