Rated 5 out of 5 by from A true treasure This is a very sweet book, with an excellent message. I find it a treasure for my son's library. It has even got a page that you can write a dedication to the person you are giving it to. I have not just bought my son one, but other friend's children as well. It is just too sweet to pass up...
