    Imaginative┬┐.

    After the death of her parents, nine-year-old Robin went to live with Uncle B. Ball. Fuzzy the cat never liked anyone, but Robin was the exception. The cat was determined to protect the little girl and beat up Pits, a Pit Bull. Special friends come to play with her, but not everyone can see them. When she tells her grandmother and Uncle B. Ball about Mr. Lucifer, they wonder what is going on. W. Edmund Hood wrote The Millionth Moon in 1991 but only recently decided to publish it. The plot is pure fantasy. This book is geared toward youth. Hood has a unique style of writing. The characters are well-developed. Robin is an adorable little girl. The name Mr. Lucifer bothered me I wonder why the author chose this particular title. Lucifer is another name for satan, the fallen angel. Perhaps it was by coincidence that the author chose this name. Regardless of his reasons, I cannot recommend this book for children. While this book is well written I object to exposing children to the idea that satan is good.
