This book speaks to the ethereal child in me, where magical and not quite logical things can make sense without trying. I loved this book, and I think it found me at the right time, even though I am far older than the target audience.
I could imagine a parent reading this book to a small child, a little bit each night. I can also see myself rereading it over and over. It's written so lyrically, especially the beginning, and I love that both sorrow and happiness are treated as equally valid experiences. To see the world as a story resonates with me personally, and this was one of those books that felt very familiar in its' wording, even though I'd never read it before. It certainly spoke to me.
I know this review isn't really helpful to anyone else, but I would say this book should be read by everyone.
