What an odd book to have in a children's library! Even though it is pretty short - I read the whole thing in less than an hour - a story about the pros and cons of earthly immortality, and what one would choose if one were able to make a choice. A rather uncomfortable book, in fact.

And also a question that seldom occurs to children anyway, although it might to someone my age...

However, it won an award as an American Library Association Notable Children's Book, so many people do not feel the way I do.
