This book works for adults, since the issues of love, change, growth, and forgiveness can be debated. It works for teens, who will love the ending. And it works for children, who are will definately "get" and enjoy the ending.
Format: one of the great things about the book is that it uses the book itself as part of the design. So, yes, as pointed out, this books is "sideways", but that is because the "top" part is the air and the "bottom" the water.
Oh, and JerseyTomato? You say: "To read the book, you need to hold it open long-ways, so the pages are laid out like a wall calendar. It is not easy to turn the pages. I can't believe the School Library Journal reviewer didn't even mention this." Did you miss the very beginning of the SLJ review: "Beginning with pages that open vertically instead of horizontally"?
