It is a delightful, and very charming book about a little three eyed alien who is accidentally stranded here and she is lonely. I love that the heroine is female but perfectly relate-able/accessible to everyone. Most "neutral" characters just always seem to be boys. The pictures are expressive and beautiful and communicate the perfect mood and feel for the book. Though alien in form, her body language is amazingly communicative whether it be in expressing forlorn or delight. The text is concise and evocative. I love that I don't have to paraphrase it for impatient little kids who just want to turn the page and see the next picture already. It is a total favorite with both the kids and adults in this house. We absolutely adore this book.
Have you read it? What do you think about it?
