listening so avidly Our youngest was quite sad about the story, to the point that she says that she didn t like it But our oldest was completely fascinated, entranced by the tale She read it again on her own the next day and was insistent that we get the other books in this series Being the concerned mom that I am, we discussed the poor choices that Lillian made that fateful day and we imagined
