Review by ElizaJane
OCT 13 - Fuzz McFlops is a famous poet. He's a recluse, a loner, has a deformed ear, an anxiety condition and never reads his fan mail. Until one day, an especially vibrant letter catches his eye and he opens it. The female writer doesn't like the depressing ending of a poem of his and suggests a happy ending for it. He throws it in the garbage. She continues to write him and they become friends with her letters influencing a bit. Enough to make a difference but too much to change who he is, in fact, she likes who he is. This is a beautiful story, a love story, of accepting who you are, being yourself and there is a true love possible for everyone. But one must step outside their comfort zone just a little bit to meet that person; you can't accomplish anything by doing nothing at all. Really such a sweet story!Secondly, the book uses many different types of literature: fables, letters, fairytales, music, poetry, recipes, postcards, post scripts, etc. At the back of the book is a glossary of sorts listing every device used and explaining what it is and its purpose.
