I liked this book. I used to have this read to me when I was little and it was, still is, one of my favorite books for children. I think that it brings the perfect level of fantasy and reality throughout.
Aside from the story, the illustrations were good and some realistic. Illustrations are very important to me, and I imagine most other people as well. I loved looking at the pictures and could not wait to see what was next.

This book was so sweet and charming! A delightful summer read about a librarian and an “over tall” Cape Codder in the early 20th century and their relationship to each other. Subtitled “A Romance,” itms not cringe-y; rather it‘s simply sweet without the overwhelming elements passion. Darling, funny, and heartbreaking, I recommend picking up this one. #catsoflitsy

1950s New England, Peggy Cort is a spinster librarian in a small town, sensible beyond reason & rapidly becoming curmudgeonly until 11yo James comes into the library with an appetite for knowledge and an inability to stop growing.
This beautifully told story captures Peggy‘s unique view of the world, her loneliness palpable - and how she sees James, all his beauty and promise, and the condition that isolates and confines him.

Centique It‘s touching, quiet and for me it was unremittingly sad - but I think I‘ll remember this for a long time. 6mo

"I do not love mankind." After opening line like this I will be very disappointed if I don't like this book. So far so good.

“The gaping #giant heads which topped the courthouse columns looked oddly nauseated, as if they were about to vomit on him.” #QuotsyMar19
I feel like in scenes like these, the reader sees the world through the lens of leper Thomas Covenant‘s bitterness & self-loathing.

rretzler I‘ve not read any of the Chronicles of Thomas Covenant yet, but my husband raves about them! I guess I should read them someday. 8mo
