I'm not sure I approve of this book being categorized as a children's book. While I don't think that children's books should always be cheery and silly, I don't think that they should cross the line and become frightening or haunting, which I thought this book was. I would not read this book out loud to a child, it is slightly depressing and one page of illustrations is especially scary. This book had an agenda to push and that was slightly annoying, because children won't get that. The illustrations were very striking for this book, when they weren't dark. Probably not a book I'd recommend.
