Some silly fairy (read dumb bitch with a wand and some wings) creates leaf man then leaves him hanging. (Ha! See what I did there) Leaf man only has the day to live and while pondering great things ends up helping some lost little girl get home.

This read like a golden book ,and I probably would have liked it better if it had been. I was irritated the fairy got bored with her new sentient being and flitted of to play with someone else (presumably Puck).

Here's the first line -

While a very short story, I think it's a good story for children. It shows how even small interactions can greatly affect the lives of others. In just one afternoon, the Leaf Man made such an impression on the little girl that she remembered him for the rest of her life.

Not only that, but he spent his life in service to others and did not act selfishly.

Both great messages to keep in mind, for young and old alike.

This short, very short, story abaout Leaf Man is interesting and very unusual. A lot of it takes place in school and the way the leaf man works with one of the young female characters is great.

Would not purchase this for a gift. The cover is the only interesting part of this children's book.

Not quite "Leaf Man" but good enough for a five- year- old.

Gotta love that bizarre cover--however, the story contained inside is too schmaltzy and silly for me.
