    Such a great little book. It drew me in quickly, and I could not read it fast enough. The story and the characters are endearing. Absolutely made me want to save buttons and climb trees. Most wonderful of all, it is full to the brim with beautiful and enduring insights about life, suffering, relationships, and faith. Leaves me wanting more. You do not want to miss the transformational messages you will find in the pages of this volume.
