1. Thank you for posting this. I had intended to give this to my son to read on his own, but now I think I’ll make it a read aloud. It sounds like we could have some good discussions with this.

  2. I loved this book too when we read it several years ago. And I would answer “no!” to your question:

    Is it odd for a fully grown adult to be blown away by a children’s book?

  3. I discovered this book as an adult (reading it aloud to my boys) and really loved it. Two other books for children (teens) that touched me deeply were The Giver by Lowry and Tuck Everlasting by Babbitt.

    I read this book over 40 years ago as a reqirement (along with about 40 other books) for my Children’s Literature class I was taking in college. It’s good to see that the book is still as stimulating as it was even back then. I’m glad you enjoyed it.
