Through the Looking Glass:
“What is so extraordinary about this unique little book is that every time one reads it one finds something new to puzzle over or wonder at. New interpretations can be made and mulled over as one enjoys the whimsical and delightful pencil drawings created by Tricia Tusa. In the tradition of The Little Prince and Pooh, Avi has created a book which will delight, and puzzle, readers of all ages and for years to come.”
