My favorite parts of the book is the returning of a helpful dad with smoking pipe in hand. You know, this is a good book for a Father's Day gift too. If not for Father's Day, any day because dads are always remembered for their love and protection.
Because of this book I thought a great deal about cruelty of hatred. If a person really hates a person, it is practically impossible for that person not to do something horrible and despicable. Oddly enough they might call their motivation love. I have heard people say there is a thin line between love and hate. Now, I think those words make more sense to me.
