Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Some of the Kinder Planets This book is my personal fav. Rich characters dealing with the little magic found in all of our lives. Excellent for prompting discussion on friendships, appearances -- all that stuff teachers have to deal with in health class. For those of you who live in the Ottawa area, Wynne-Jones bases many of his stories in your backyard.
