The narrator for this book was fabulous. I •might• check out the rest of the series because he has narrated all of them.
Even for - or especially because it was for - elementary aged children, I found it dragged too much. Like Greybeard and Grandfather talked/explained too much; long winded buggers!
I could compare the Tinys (sic) to the Littles, but the Littles were short stories and more enjoyable.
Also, religion was not brought into the picture in The Littles, but over a handful of mentions in this book.
I'm still scratching my head about how The Telling told the young Tinys (being under 1 foot tall) to beware of Bigs (our sized people). The reasoning was how Tinys would want to play with animals, we would want to play with them ... most animals would be too BIG even to them, for that analogy to make any sense!
It's better than a lot of books written for our younger readers.
I found this book to be more tedious and dry but I hope a future relationship with the author, editor, copy editor could polish up this gem could-be and deliver it with more finesse.
