Mrs. Winkler's telescope looks not into the night sky, but instead into the hearts of men and women. Humorous adventures with spiritual lessons. Brilliantly illustrated with beautiful classic style fine-line black and white drawings, reminiscent of Wind in the Willows. Twelve stories, nothing scary--very lovely and imaginative. Stories revolve around Mrs. Winkler's amazing candy shop and bakery, with her observatory upstairs called The Contemplatorium. Several adventures involve a flying ice-cream truck. Two children, Annie and Arthur, are her constant companions, and she has many unusual friends. Suitable for ages 7-14. Adults love it Excellent for reading aloud.
