Amazing!

This book is hands-down the GREATEST read-out-loud book on the planet!
I knew, as soon as I read the first sentence, I was in for a treat. I mean really, can you go wrong with a book that begins:

“Here is story that is stranger than strange. Before we begin you may want to arrange:
A blanket,
A cushion ,
A comfortable seat,
And maybe some cocoa and something to it.”

Robert Paul Weston creates a story (no ... a world!) entirely in rhyme. But, this is not one of those books that makes awkward rhymes, simply for the sake of rhyming ... these are beautiful heartfelt rhymes about imagination, bravery,society, and believing in oneself and in the possibility of magic.

This magical story/journey says less about a fantastical world, and more about the world we live in today.

This book can truly be enjoyed by anyone! I read it to my four-year old son, an energetic little boy who can barely sit through Where the Wild Things Are, and he loved it, sat still during it (take Weston’s advice - serve cocoa), and requested it night after night – until we got to the end – at which point he said “read it again.”

And we did.
