Great story, sad and wonderful at the same time. When someone in your family has suffered from cancer you never forget. This is a story of mystery, courage and of course the wonderful animals Brown has created for all of us to read about. Their interaction is a great part of all of these books and should be enjoyed by all who read. I look forward to the next one, as always.
