Read from January 08 to 10, 2011

This a a charming, nostalgic coming-of-age story, which my eight-year-old daughter and I both adored. It is an innocent look at childhood in yesteryear, and a lesson on the power of friendship. Hoberman briefly touches on anti-semitic attitudes pre-WWII in a small Californian neighborhood, but the book remains sweet and pure as the loveable characters learn that what is inside transcends outward appearances and even religious beliefs. This is children's literature at its best!
