really liked it
Read in September, 2008

This was fun, short, verging on sweet. Because I am not entirely sure what I took from it morally (unless I am to imagine it's a straight a,b,c growing up tale - I'm not sold that it is), I can't really say I found it completely sweet. I don't know what the word is because amoral, lacking morals, all have a bad sense about them. Maybe it had empty morals. Or maybe even morals that really weren't morals at all.


I'm totally enjoying this book. Also, I'm freaked out because it randomly mentions the Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin which I coincidentally picked up from the library at the same time as this book. what the hell were the chances of that??

Noal funny when cowinkeedeenks like that happen. I call 'em circles.....if that makes any sense.

Nami idn't it tho? sometimes they add up and become greater than the sum of their parts. Or life, if that makes any sense.
