It really is a heartwarming, inspirational story. I loved how the orange symbolized freedom to Thomas's father and this was passed on to him through the taste of the orange. I was completely enthralled by the children's response to Thomas's harsh punishment on Christmas. It's so easy to get stuck believing the worst of people. This story is a great reminder of, among many other things, of the sweetness of children and the good in all of us.
I will be reading more of these stories. I know my little one will love it when he is just a little older (I'd say this story would appeal to children 7 years and up, mine's a little younger). Highly recommend as a quick, heartwarming read for children and adults alike!
My issues lie with the layout and illustrations of the story. As for the layout I had to hunt for the beginning of the story. Once I discovered the beginning of the story the formatting using multiple hard returns between each paragraph unnecessarily increased the number of page turns. It made the book seem amateurish or perhaps like a high school student trying to complete a 10 page story when she only has 7 pages of writing.
The other issue is that this is a children's story, I would think 8 years and above. That age group may not require a photo per page it still requires several full page illustrations. What the reader gets is 4 probably well done illustrations but they are so small as to make the point moot.
So if you want a well written poignant story with major flaws, get this. However, as this story is a retelling so you might be able to find it retold better elsewhere.

Heartwarming; the story has its sad part but shows the good that others do when they reach out to someone in needPublished on January 11, 2013 by Rebecca102
This is just an advertisement for music that is for sale. The story is just a lead in for the ads.I would not have downloaded if I'd known.Published on January 3, 2013 by sylvia

I bought the kindle edition...editing issues. Story was a bit long and over detailed not only for young children but for adults too.Published on December 27, 2012 by Katherine Pilling
