The premise is good, and I enjoyed it at first. After awhile, though, I felt like I was being literarily lectured as it became more and more heavy-handed.

This reads like it should be presented at a Zig Ziglar seminar. The metaphors are heavy-handed and the aphorisms are trite. The story itself is mystical and charming, but seems to be only a vehicle for the motivational nuggets the author is trying to ...more

Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.
“Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.”
Roald Dahl

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
“Supposing I know of a flower that is absolutely unique, that is nowhere to be found except on my planet, and any minute that flower could accidentally be eaten up by a little lamb, isn't that important? If a person loves a flower that is the only one of its kind on all the millions and millions of stars, then gazing at the night sky is enough to make him happy. He says to himself "My flower is out there somewhere." But if the lamb eats the flower, then suddenly it's as if all the stars had stopped shining. Isn't that important?”
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince

Mary Ann Shaffer
“I don't want to be married just to be married. I can't think of anything lonelier than spending the rest of my life with someone I can't talk to, or worse, someone I can't be silent with.”
Mary Ann Shaffer, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

Mary Ann Shaffer
“That's what I love about reading: one tiny thing will interest you in a book, and that tiny thing will lead you to another book, and another bit there will lead you onto a third book. It's geometrically progressive - all with no end in sight, and for no other reason than sheer enjoyment.”
Mary Ann Shaffer, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

Kate DiCamillo
“Open your heart. Someone will come. Someone will come for you. But first you must open your heart.”
Kate DiCamillo, The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane
