Last week two of us* were riveted to these pages.
We'd begun the book a day or two before.
He saw I was available, finished his required work and made his way to the book shelf
thinking we might be able to read a few more pages . . .
Fortunately his mother was in a conversation that detained her just enough time for us to continue all the way to the end of this delightful story.
It isn't a new book. But, we'd never seen it before.
SO, if YOU are looking for a great read . . . with rich language . . that touches on Life and Loyalty in a True and Innocent manner . . .
Especially if you are looking for a gift for a reader who appreciates delightful illustrations
and a story that offers hope.
I'm recommending "Amos & Boris" by William Steig
(two of us* - one rather young gentleman - upper grade school-ish - and a silver headed lady with chubby knees . . . . giggle)
