My friend, the starfinder by George Ella Lyon and Stephen Gammell - review

I once knew an old man who told strange stories.

Really, is there any premise more luscious than that? My friend, the starfinder is fanciful, and strange, and I'm not sure what to make of it, and it's apparently a true story, which is why it doesn't make a lot of sense I'm sure, and I'm going to love reading it aloud. Stephen Gammell's light touch gives this book dreamy stormscapes with little pops of color - perfect.

I loved this book. I have no idea why, really. it just really worked for me.
