really liked it
bookshelves: childrens-classic

This is an absolutely delightful children's book about conformity and courage, about belonging and staying true to oneself and being part of a community. To my delight one of the main protagonists is female, and although at the beginning she does not think much of herself, she is quite sensible and competent and is respected by many of the other characters. The story itself is simple but has one of my favourite things in it, people building from the ground up, and I really liked how realistic it was about how different people work and create differently, and how one encourages them to put effort into things without judging them. Abstract, I know, but I do not really want to spoil it. I am curious to find the sequel and see what I think.
