I got this for my daughter, who is going through a "porcupine" phase. The illustrations are lovely, the story extremely simple and the message comes through without sermonizing.
I was very pleased with both the book and the service I received from this vendor. Would definitely recommend The Manistee River Store!! Excellent service.....provided full information in case I had a question or a problem - which I didn't but nice to have the information in case I did. 5 Stars for sure!!
