Imagine them listening to his every word as if it carried with it the means of reaching that place… and then taking those words, once he’s drifted off into snoring slumber, and using them as guideposts in their own journey in search of just such a world of wonder. Envision, as they might, what a strange little trip it might be…Now picture yourself reciting this very same story to a child (or children) of your own. You’re reading it aloud… as it was meant to be. Imagine them listening to it as the children within it would, envisioning the very same images… in their own special ways… as those children might. You’re not just helping them to (finally?) go to sleep, you’re also encouraging them to learn and dream and explore the mysterious possibilities of their young and magical minds. And you’re suggesting ways in which to interpret and respond to those possibilities… little morals and thoughts and ideas that might help them along their way.That’s what this book is about, as simple and silly as it may seem (and otherwise be). It was written, and rewritten, and rewritten again before the toughest of critics, the author’s own children… read to them each night in hopes that they might help him to finally get it ‘right’. Did it work? You might have to ask them… or whomever you might be kind and gracious and generous enough to read it to. That’s the way in which these things work.Right, Grandpapa?
