it was amazing

The publishers of this book would like you to believe that this is a picture book for children. I'm not sure it's that easily pegged. Like the very best picture books with stories and art that stay with you forever, this book is sad and whimsical in equal measures. The illustrations are gorgeous. The stories are simple, yet profound. The combination is a reading experience I won't soon forget. Much like The Pursuite of Happiness by Myra Kalman this slim little book has a big impact with its visuals and with its sadness, hope, and whimsy. Great for kids and their parents everywhere and for anyone who loves graphic novels and doesn't care that they might be disguised as kids' books.
