Selections from readers comments so far. 
This story changed my definition of magic.

Dwellers in the Realm dared me to forget them.  I lost that bet.
There is no book to compare. If you stir the spirit of Crockett Johnson's Harolds Purple Crayon, Emily Carr’s Book of Small, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s The Little Prince and the Disney movie Fantasia, be careful.
 No art book like this has been possible to write, much less to tell, or to read, until now.​​​​​​​
I used to make art and music as a child until life's distractions got in the way. This tale reconnected me to some timeless beautiful places I love forever.
Anytime is good to take a childhood vacation or wander a coastal nature preserve.
An artist view of friendship and transformation.
