The book is engaging and sometimes sad. It really paints a picture of reality and how easy it is to lose sight of what's important and become consumed by greed. However, it is also a story of hope and how it is possible to change for the good - at times it almost feels spiritual. I read this to my two year old son who usually has limited patience, but he was engrossed from beginning to end. I know that in addition to the story, the magnificent illustrations by David Cochard helped keep his attention. They are rich, vibrant and a pure joy to look at. I'm happy that there are quality, educational books like this one out there that can help me teach my son to appreciate the world he lives in.
