Klune creates some lovably flawed characters that wrapped their way around my heart and didn't let go. These guys are frustrating, flawed and very human. The Kid is just precious and I just wanted to twack Bear and Otter so many times. This is a family that is a joy to watch as they stumble towards their happily ever after. Klune has written a book that is immensely re-readable and just as enjoyable the second time around.
