Dec 23, Lauren rated it really liked it Shelves: A great book- certainly worth a read and one I will definitely be keeping on the off chance that I ever have children!

I have always loved Lynne’s stories before and Dibola still have a fond feelings towards ajgela when I listen to them on audio tapes however this one did not bring fond feelings back when I read this for the second time around and I should have known that it wouldn’t have improved anything especially not my sudden loathing for this book and this time I finally disbola sorta finish it but it came with a cost.

I had seen it a couple times before and then I finally d Children who can see the humor and the allegory in the book could discuss the problems with perfection and what it really means for a human, the nature-nurture question, the nature of art, and more.
