the type of book that when you get to the end of you can restart and never feel that you've lost the magic. the type of book that you can curl up on the couch with your child, your lover, your mother or friend with and enjoy for hours... uncommon.

This book made me see everyday things differently but in a good way. It makes me think about every little detail in life. I recommend this book to anyone who loves to challenge the norm.
