The illustrator uses a lot of brown and black. We think it needs more bright colors and it also needs more pictures. This book is different from any other book because the little girl always wants to see something beautiful and she also doesn?t want to see something sad like a poor lady who lives on a big cardboard carton wrapped in plastic on the sidewalk.
We felt sad at the beginning of the book because she just saw ugly things like a poor lady in the street, trash on the courtyard, and the word die on her door. At the end of the story we felt happy because she did not see the word DIE anymore on her door, she picked up the trash, and she gave the poor lady a home were she could live. We recommend this book to teenagers who smoke and do graffiti on the wall and to children six and seven years old because they should see something beautiful like the girl in the story. We thought it was a sad story with a happy ending.
