Review: This story is told from a unique perspective, which makes it even more interesting for young children. It is so well done that it is amazing to realize it was originally written as a grade school writing project.

The story is just as much a must read for adults as it is for children. The text and illustrations work together well and draw readers into the story.

This would make a wonderful gift which could be passed on for generations.

**I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are entirely my own.**

Rating: Five stars
