Delightful, thoughtful, and wonderfully written. I adored this tale of a boy and his wise armadillo friend, full of heart and life and sarcastic cingulates. It's a tale of growth, struggling to find your footing in this messy world of morality, and learning to trust advice of those who have your best interests at heart, even as you have to learn things for yourself sometimes too.
Which is why I wholeheartedly agree with the author that it's a kids' book - it's just a kids' book that believes kids are people and treats them like they are. The world needs more kids' books like this one, I think.
