brings to mind a favorite middle grade novel,
Darius Bell and the Glitter Pool.

Odo Hirsch’s magical tale showcases his “dry, understated humor and his subtly charming characters.”
"... it is a brilliant book to use and recommend for those who want to read about the true spirit of gift giving and receiving.”
