Hucklebaby is really into “monsters” at the moment. So anything that looks like a monster (friendly kind) he wants to see…talk about…look at…
Another weird reason I love this book…is my grandfather’s name was Fred. It’s such a simple name, but to me it is filled with an amazing amount of love.
Fred is able to see things no one else can. His world is surrounded by creatures that help humans without them knowing. You know…the strange things that may happen that as adults we never think about. Well… we are being helped by these beings.
Isn’t that such a cool thought? That we are surrounded by creatures that help us all the time? I kinda hope I have a purple one.
No one else can see them but Fred. But like everything else…that changed as he got older. He got busy.
Oh, Fred… Oh, Fred getting old…
Have you ever had those moments where you just stop and wonder…??? This book gets deep. :) OK…maybe I’m just having a moment, but honestly this book was very touching.
Fred realized that he had forgotten so many things that once made him who he was, and once he got back to himself, his friends were there again. But they had always been there helping him, he just couldn’t see it… (insert weepy sound effect here).
