Many of us have read this book in grade school but forget the lessons taught in this book. The way we view things can vary greatly from the original intention. How we approach different viewpoints and problem solving is also brought out in the book. This book shows us how greatly different a child's thoughts are different from an adult's thoughts. An adult's thinking may be at times hard to understand because there is no logic to it, it just keeps going around in circles, so to say. Many people around the world have enjoyed this book, for it has been translated into other languages. Although being a children's book, it is so thought provoking that any person at any age can enjoy it.
