I recommend this book to anyone who is 8 and up because it is not a hard book. The book is not long. The book is very interesting. It talks about the way you should look at other people. '''Yeah I see what you mean.' He was right; it did make them seem less pretty to think of them that way-not ugly just less pretty." The narrator is talking to Carl about the mistake he made when he saw the Foxman and why he should not do what he did. I learned that you should not look at someone as being ugly but just as being less pretty. "'And he died.' I sat for awhile and cried, holding his hand, and I wished I could have been and done more, the way you do, and then I moved away from him, because he was gone, and I put the guitar next to him and emptied the kerosene lamp around the floor of the cabin and dropped a match in the puddle.'' I learned that the narrator stayed by the Foxman's side he did not leave. He felt really close to him. If you are really close to someone you should stay by his or her side like the narrator did the Fox man when he died.
