I dunno. This was lovely, in it's way, but it just didn't quite work for me. I guess I would have liked more fantastic elements - as is, there's really only one bit that couldn't quite happen. A realistic story, a fantasy, a mix of the two, all work for me. An unbalanced mix just seems off. Read full review

About the author (2007)

Barbara Lehman has illustrated many books for children. Born in Chicago, Barbara attended Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, where she earned a BFA in communication design. A full-time illustrator, Barbara says, “Books and art have always held the strongest attraction for me. I have always felt drawn to ‘commercial art’ because of its ability to reach many people. I like the idea of being part of the media in a meaningful and thoughtful way, especially with children as the audience.” She now lives in Philmont, New York.
