I stumbled onto this book while working as a church secretary. It was in the library. I fell in love with it and have loved it ever since. The story is utterly charming and inspiring, and the illustrations are gorgeous.

I have even given this as a gift to a friend. Thank goodness for Amazon making it available again!

One of my favorite books.
  • Unereel
Essential Tolstoy. Tolstoy has a true mythic imagination, in a Jungian sense.
This is the best short story I have ever read. Tolstoy was a wise man, and God is good to us as we should be to others.
