|Eleanor''s Little Not-Really-For-Kids Books are an absolutely magnetizing charm-filled collection of illustrated stories. These stories are humor at its best: a quality beyond words, defying description. Impossible to put down once begun, this is one of six books in a series with twelve stories in each book.|
From the Publisher:
Eleanor DeWoskin, born in 1915, is an author for that vast unacknowledged audience of adult children: those within whom the embers of childhood still smoulder.Whatever we might expect to find in these little books is not what we find! An amoeba, a mouse, a crab, a squirrel, a duck and an earthworm all take turns bringing us outrageously improbable but deeply familiar life situations. Eleanor DeWoskin's gift is to effortlessly bring love and light into the confusing array of choices we must all make in life.Eleanor's delightful characters approach each moment with the freshness of childhood, but as you shall see, the dramatic arena in which they play is not the realm of children alone, but a fully adult theater!
