This was one of my favorites as a VERY young child. It belonged to my next-door neighbor, Tom Sundberg, a gentle, kind man who had a unique reading voice, not unlike the voice of Pooh for Disney. I can still hear him saying "Christopher Ooooooooooooo" in his unique, haunting voice, as Christopher would be caught in his antics! And when he moved away, I cried giant crocodile tears. Sadly, he is no longer with us.
I was glad to be able to thank him for all he did for me at an unexpected time: the party for graduating high school seniors at Bud Lyndon Swim Club. Ironically, he was introduced to me by my best friend on the team, his granddaughter Suzanne. I would give literally anything to hear from her again.
And she'd be happy to learn that I was also able to thank his best friend, Mr. Johnson (who you may know as Jimminy Cricket) while working in an Idaho nursing home. He and his wife could not believe it was really me, "You can't be her, she was so little," so I took the little green book he had given me the day Mr. Sundberg moved to work the next morning. You cannot imagine the tears and hugs flowing between us all as we were able to reconnect in his last days, tears brought forth upon seeing the little book, realizing I was, indeed, the little girl he once knew. Nor can you imagine how grateful I was to finally be able to thank him for the lasting impact he had upon my life. Even his wife, who I was able to thank for keeping me from trouble by removing the paint I had gotten on my yellow dress the day the fence was painted.
I guess this review is more a testament to the LOVE of reading instilled in me by these wonderful men and one of the books one of them read to me most often. But isn't that appropriate?
