If you look at this book as having a new, creative setting (earth for the lost souls of children who somehow got knocked out of the tunnel after they died) it's a cute story. However, if you read the book and think it's proposing doctrine about the afterlife, you're not going to like it. And I admit that as a parent it was hard to read about the spirits of children sinking to the center of earth where they would be trapped until the earth exploded. Surely God isn't as disorganized or uncaring to let large amounts of children just wander the earth getting trapped by such things. Ditto for the evil spirits of bad children who trap people in pickle barrels or hang them upside down in pirate ships.

But taken as a purely fictional setting--very creative.
