Tomie dePaola writes so well that children are drawn into the story, no matter the subject, and his illustrations are very appealing which only enhances the experience.

The book is just so wonderful and inspiring. I loved this book so much that i went out into a meadow full of daisies and read it over and over. I looked up at the sky and wondered how ever could God created such beautiful figures. I thought wow! and just think all of these white fluffy clouds are made up of evaporated water. When i was little i always wanted to go up into the clouds and sit next to the angels in my dreams. I loved my childhood. This book was once again inspiring and full of creativeness. I have to say Thank you to the author, and I hope all the people who read this will love it as much as I did. Love, Sheri
