For those of you who don't remember, this novella initially resulted in a rather traumatic experience for both my nephew and me. See the post here.
Well, as some of you predicted, time has seemed to mend some things. Not only did my nephew reread it and enjoy it, but he took it to school for show-and-tell, and now both of his teachers have asked to read it as well.
I've decided to allow the little guy back into the family again.
