really liked it

I picked this up at the library. Never heard of it or the author before, but I liked the cover art (different, older edition from this one). Yes, I'm that shallow.

HOWEVER... the story was really, really good. Well-written, concise, even profound while never being more than an age-appropriate children's story. I particularly could relate to Janey, having always been the Odd One. Very, very charming, and I'm going to see if there are more books by this author.

Marie I remember reading my dad's old Weekly Reader copy of this when I was about ten or so. What a great book!
