Three stars seemed too harsh for this book. It’s rather slow for a children’s book, and not especially well-written, but it’s so much fun.

Marilynne Robinson
“This is an interesting planet. It deserves all the attention you can give it.”
Marilynne Robinson, Gilead

Marilynne Robinson
“Love is holy because it is like grace--the worthiness of its object is never really what matters.”
Marilynne Robinson, Gilead

Marilynne Robinson
“Sometimes I have loved the peacefulness of an ordinary Sunday. It is like standing in a newly planted garden after a warm rain. You can feel the silent and invisible life.”
Marilynne Robinson, Gilead

J.R.R. Tolkien
“Gandalf! I thought you were dead! But then I thought I was dead myself. Is everything sad going to come untrue? What's happened to the world?"
A great Shadow has departed," said Gandalf, and then he laughed and the sound was like music, or like water in a parched land; and as he listened the thought came to Sam that he had not heard laughter, the pure sound of merriment, for days upon days without count.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Return of the King

Carson McCullers
“But the hearts of small children are delicate organs. A cruel beginning in this world can twist them into curious shapes. The heart of a hurt child can shrink so that forever afterward it is hard and pitted as the seed of a peach. Or again, the heart of such a child may fester and swell until it is a misery to carry within the body, easily chafed and hurt by the most ordinary things.”
Carson McCullers, The Ballad of the Sad Café and Other Stories
