There aren't any giants or special powers or magic of any kind in this book. All this book really is, is a simple story of a boy and his father. They are simple folk. It's a simple story. But it's so well written that it's incredibly endearing and heartwarming without being preachy at all.
One of the assignments that Tiff had her class do was to draw a picture of Danny's home. One kid in the class, Mary, told Tiff, "I don't think I did the assignment right. I painted it." Well let me tell you Mary, that you did it more than right. You rocked it.
Keep up the good work kids.
