Beautifully illustrated and wonderfully told stories. These little life lessons are great stories written at exactly the right level for kids. The "shorts" each teach a lesson to one of the children in a nice subtle way. The book would be a great discussion book for parents and children or for a classroom.
Unbelievable, lame, boring, melodramatic, but says some interesting stuff about language. For the protagonist, a priest writing a journal, literary creation is an act of resistance and subversion. The novel also contrasts human language with God's language in a self-reflective way that I have not often found in Christian novels.
