As I was reading this, I was expecting to give a GLOWING review with my strong stamp of approval... but this book has ONE flaw. One BIG flaw:

It doesn't really have an /ending/.

I hate that. Oh I hate that so MUCH...

It doesn't /need/ one... but I like my stories to have a beginning, a middle, and an end. We have to guess at the end in this one...

Even so, This is a definate four stars out of five, because with VERY few words and a lot of very simple drawings, James Sturm has managed to tell us an amzing story, provided a wonderful character study, of a man... like us. More like us than we care to admit. ...in a situation MUCH more like ours than is comfortable to consider.

The story is simple, and I couldn't even begin to explain- but what happens in today's world as the 'big chain' stores take over smaller, sellers who buy handmade or craftsman made items instead of factory made that is so much cheaper in every way... has happened before. It will happen again.

One man's struggle with it is somehow MORE for having been removed from our world and presented in this one. :)

Powerful stuff.
