Fun, clever and yet deep

by epdancechick (WorldCat user published 2009-11-12) Excellent Permalink

I loved this book!  At first I thought it was more of a children's book because of the illustrations but the story was fairly sophisticated spiritually.  Still kids will get it at their own level.  It really made me think deeper about God, religion and spirituality.
