In Reply to: Followup book was "'Tis," and was not as good IMO also nm posted by Jamie on October 07, 2005 at 12:09:36:
I really want to find more books from the eyes of a child like this one. They are the only ones that tell it like it really is, ya know? Even as an adult who experienced those things, your definitions from your childhood are voiced SO much more clearly than trying to express them as an adult.
The angel on the seventh step in the book is a perfect example. An adult would use too many words to describe it, "warm" and "light" is just enough to know that he is telling the honest-to-God truth that the angel WAS there. No explaining or further detail needed.
I really loved this book, and it will be hard to toss it back into the drop box.
