Now this is a truly wonderful book, about life, love, age, about
all of us. I gave it to look at to a 7 year old who sat with her 75
year old grandmother, and both were intent, deeply engaged, the one
full of questions, the other searching still for answers. A
remarkable and important book! * Michael Morpurgo *
