There’s a special place in this world for those who write children’s stories, and a special place in that special place for those who write children’s stories about magic, healing, and the power of communist friendship. Here’s the thing about children’s stories: they’re almost never just for children. This story resonates with all ages because the problems resonate with all ages. A group of friends begin to lose their livelihoods, but by banding together they at the very least feel a little better about it. They heal together from trauma. And all of it, believe me, is magical. The author weaves astrology and spirituality into all of their work in the hopes we’ll all be a little better for it. –Jimmy Cooper (astroletariat.com)
