Thing leads a simple life with its friends, Cactus and Moose the Shadow Puppet… until the day Thing sees Other Thing through the telescope! How will Thing react, and what will happen when Moose the Shadow Puppet suddenly disappears? A quirky story about how generosity, understanding and tolerance can lead to true friendship.
This is definitely a quirky story… and after having read it several times I can’t decide whether I like it or hate it. Having the characters be called “Things” kept tripping me up reading it aloud for some reason, which didn’t help.
This is a more odd and eccentric story, thought it has some fun, appealing aspects. I like how different and unique the book is, but it was a little too strange and disjointed for my liking.
