My sister and I absolutely loved this book as children. Julie Edwards (Andrews) is such an immensely talented woman! It is a beautifully crafted tale about imagination and strength of character. If you are on the fence, BUY THIS BOOK!!! You won't regret it.
I read this book as a young girl. When I was trying to get pregnant 6 years ago, did book searches to find this book, which was out of print. I am so pleased it's back in print!!! I plan on presenting it to my child as something very special, to hand down to his children, etc.
