Liesl & Po by Lauren Oliver

I believe I read it when I was 10 or so. I guess I miss the in-between, the borderline that gives dimension to the world. Just look at that! Yet the world you discover beneath these very pages is delightful and magical. But he was still funny and cute. Po, the formerly human one, bears a message from her father suggesting that his ashes must be scattered at the grave of Liesl’s late mother in order for him to find peace.

The writing is exquisite. I just said wordy, for anx sakes. Here you go …scroll down a bit. That is all ; What I love about this book: That really made it an even better reading experience.

Liesl & Po by Lauren Oliver

And this is why. Charming family classic is also thought-provoking. When Will accidentally loses the alchemist’s most powerful potion, accidentally switching it with the ashes of Liesl’s deceased father, he is forced to run away.
