A cute little thing. Not only for children. ( )
  giusimoffa | Sep 21, 2013 |
Phileas lives in a world where words are a commodity, treasured and valued but not equally available to all. As a result they must be used precisely, sparingly. When Phineas has a chance to express his feelings for a girl in his building, he shows us how the power of the right word can make the difference in a relationship. Dark smudgy illustrations fit the drab scene and contrast well with vibrant reds when Phileas's break-through occurs. Rich for discussion at upper elementary levels.
