I LOVE the pictures in the book. It is a wordless book, that addresses social issues. I would say that it's good for children from 6 years of age and adults.

Mark Ludy graphically portrays the impact one person with hope--one person walking in the light--can and should have upon this grey and faded world. The depth and intricacy of this book far surpases what one expects from a picture book. Ghosts in the attic and disappointed relationships are among the sources of saddness. Still, almost any history can be cured by true joy and authentic hope.
