    Exquisitely Perfect!

    This story is so beautifully crafted that, after having read it at least a hundred times by now, it still brings tears to my eyes. While the tale's great surprise tenderly unfolds, readers of all ages are reminded to "think in other directions."

    Exquisitely charming!

    A clever story so perfectly composed that my heart twists and eyes tear every time I read it. It's a double rainbow: the language and tone are so lovely they draw you into the story like a good stretch after a long sleep; and the exquisite suprise it reveals is sure to sprout new cognitive paths in young (and not-so) minds.

    A beautiful book about friendship between a boy and animal

    AMIGO is one of my all time favorites and I am delighted to be reunited with it!! I used to read it to my classes, and we never failed to cry! The kids loved it, and would periodically get out a box of kleenex and request that I reread AMIGO!! The tale of growing trust between the boy and the prairie dog, beautifully illustrated, is a powerful story! I read it to 11/12 year olds, and am now buying it for my 5 and 6 year old 5-12 (+ adults!!) is the right age range.

    One of the Best Books I Have Ever Read

    I am in my 30's, and this book has some of the most beautiful language I have ever read in adult books and children's books. My 3 year old sons love the book, too. The story is beautiful, too.
