Child me and adult me agree, this is a wonderful book. It holds up with time and I really love it. The artwork by Louis Slobodkin is beautiful. There is a powerful message of forgiveness in this story. It is also a story that might help young and old alike to learn to accept each others differences. It is a quick paced book, with a lovely writing style.
This is a nostalgic read, so here is what I believe I would have rated this as a child and what I rate it now as an adult.
Child me: 5 stars
Adult me: 5 stars
