Mary Elizabeth's Musings: How can anyone go wrong with a book by the simply marvelous Tomie dePaola??? This lovely book is no exception to Mr. dePaola's gift to the world of literature. Written from the absolutely unadulterated perspective of a little boy, this book reveals the many ways that mothers are able to know every last need of her child. Mr. dePaola's simple, yet always effective prose gives us a glimpse into the genius of his wonderful mother.
A message of warning to all mothers: Grab a tissue before reading this book ... you will cry!!!
