I wasn't attracted to this book initially - it just didn't appeal at first glance - but a friend convinced me to give it a go and now I am utterly smitten. The voice captured me from the first page, and the story's gentle humor and sweet sadness carried me from there.
This is a rare book that a younger reader could tackle, but an older reader will find greater meaning in a re-read. There are issues of living within your boundaries, how we treat animals, and our duties to each other.
