Sweet, short book that I read in one sitting. I have mixed feelings about books with a strong dialect that are written for children. This one was narrated by an Italian Swiss trying to speak English so many words were just off and the syntax was often mistaken. It was cute and funny for me, but I wonder how much of this goes over kids heads or just confuses them. Part of me thinks all children's books should be written with only proper English so that they can get good rhythms and instincts in their head. But voice seems to be the thing lately. Very sweet story, however, and very different. It was narrated from an angel's point of view in a small Swiss village. Still love Creech.
