What do you think the story is about?? What do you think Mr. Snitzel does with his cookies? This story is about being down on your luck, kindhearted goodness, greed (you have to have that to make it an interesting read), and wishes come true. Mr. Snitzel is, of course, our hero. He is kind and wants to make cookies for all the children. Mr. & Mrs. Manypenny are the greedy ones. How could you guess? They don't want to help the 'shabby tramp' who comes through town with his 'thin shabby dog'. Well, won't they be sad to find out that Mr.Shabby Tramp is all about wishes. Mr. & Mrs. Manypenny end up getting their hearts desire.
I'm the girl who totally judges a book by it's cover. And I had already judged this one a winner just by the blue color and red striped pants BUT I was so pleasantly surprised by the feel good message, as well.
I love you, Mr. Snitzel. I love you hubby.~Des
