Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Another great story from Ende, treating the very important topic of Time and how people spend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We have much to learn from this book This book, although written in a way that children can enjoy it, is clearly written for Adults of today. The absurd thought that "I have no time", can be clearly seen everywhere. Every person is given a segment of time for their earthly existence. How that time is spent, is up to them. Sure we have to sleep, eat, and keep up our shelters that shield us from the outdoors, but the rest of the time is what counts. Rushing from home to work, work to hotdog vendor, hotdog vendor to work, live to work. Arrive home. Too stressed to make dinner, too exhausted to read a book, such as this one, to your child(ren). Too tired to be intimate with your wife/ husband. Sick. Tired. Stressed. Burnt out. Eaten garbage for a week. Kicked a homeless man for being in your way to the hotdog man. Don't really know your children (although you think you do). Don't really know your spouse (although you bought a book on relationships from this website ). Bored. Dissatisfied. Hungry. Alone with no time. You HAVE the time! You have been given it as a wonderful gift! This book might just help you find some. I truly wish it does.
