    Although I don't have children I know plenty of people who do. T

    Although I don't have children I know plenty of people who do. This is a beautiful and delightful adventure for children. It is educational in that it is based on a Labrador legend about the stone Labrodite, which is a beautiful stone that seems to have a trapped luminescence inside. The store is entertaining and fun. The illustrations are superb.
