    I would love to have a copy of this book It is one of those that you pick up and can t put down Fascinating, it s wonderful to imagine all that has transpired in a particular site over time Great to have lying around in the classroom for students to peruse at their leisure.

    My new favorite kids book This short and simple book entertained me for a full 4 hours I feel like the integration of not only text, images, but also the forward and backwards connection were unique.
