I love the authors boundless creativity and use of accessible language to help children wrap their minds around a very important lesson. By giving jealousy its own personality as a Green-Eyed Goblin, it also helps children learn to be less attached to it, so they can learn how to move from jealousy to gratitude. BRAVO Kay!
