One of the best children's books written!

Truly one of the best books written in the 21st century! It had so much creativity and soul. The self -sacrifice between characters is wonderful and touching. The story line is really good and the messages throughout this book really speak to your heart. It also teaches about the different beliefs many cultures have. All in all, a spectacular read!
