There are certain books about a parent’s unconditional love for a child that are timeless–and this is one of them. (Baltimore’s Child 2010-01-20)

One of my all-time favorites. I cry every time I read it…. [The book] is a beautiful script about parenthood, a poignant parable about life and death, a testimony to when the roles of child and parent become blurry. The story reminds you that no matter how grown up you are, you’re always someone’s child; that no matter how “adult” you are, you’re never too old to be loved by your parents. It makes me appreciate even more how my mother still calls me and my brother (despite us being 32- and 22-years-old, respectively) by our childhood nicknames, Pussycat and Tchotchke (Yiddish for “knickknack”). Pigeonholing this as a children’s book is like saying “Romeo & Juliet” is merely a cautionary tale about drug abuse. I dare anyone to read this story and not shed at least one tear by the end. It’s even more poignant when you learn that Munsch wrote the book as a memorial to two still-born children he and his wife had in 1979 and 1980. (Dana Lenetz Forbes 2010-04-20)
