This is cute but not as good as I'd hoped when I saw a kid book by Le Guin. I'll let Sam read it and then update with how she felt. For a short not overly-fleshed-out story it had some pretty high-level vocab in it - evasive, fledglings, intolerable - leaving me confused as to who the target audience is. I'm not sure if Sam knows those words but the book is much shorter than her normal favorites at this point (it's only 40 pages with pictures).

Maybe it'd be better for a read-out-loud to both kids - Tom likes pictures and I think they'd both enjoy the story enough to listen to it.
