Harry Potter is better reading than this for an adult and so much of the story is stolen from Harry Potter. She could be so insightful about certain things, yet so obtuse in that we seemed to miss big chunks of the greater picture (or at least, I did).

There is a cast of characters living in the same apartment house and at first you think you know who they are , but then their complex stories and connections are told as the story progresses . She's so smart and astute that you sometimes forget she's only seven until we see the insecurities and vulnerabilities of a seven year old dealing with her parents' divorce, confronting grief and death and her anxiety over having a half brother or sister and fear that she won't be loved as much . Nobody understood this bright child, not even the teachers and headmaster at school, where she was constantly bullied.All the people living in their big old building had a story to tell, relationships to explain, history to be completed, and a communal love for her grandma to be celebrated. With themes of the ‘superpower’ of the imagination and the importance of individuality, this novel is didactic without being preachy.

The redundancies alternate between being humorous and reinforcing thematic textual points, and sometimes they do both at the same time. The Kingdom of Miamas I swear sounded to me like Myalis, which sounds like a prescription drug for erectile dysfunction in my non-fantasy world. I appreciated the viewpoint of our precocious little protagonist at times, but most often found it frustrating. ela consegue transformar um estacionamento em montanhas mágicas e toalhas torcidas em dragões que precisam ser vencidos. Since my cribbage/domino buddy lent it to me with eager anticipation of my opinion, I decided to carry on.

I am not going to say anything else about the plot or the characters as this one is best going in cold if at all possible. Elsa comes to realise how each individual was a part of her grandmother's story and how each in their way is a friend to Elsa even when it may not appear so at the beginning. When Elsa’s parents divorced it was Granny who showed her how to deal with the nightmares by telling her fairy stories.

Through Elsa's eyes, and her grandmother's imagination, we learn some history and some current happenings that tie everything together. Because, as Elsa is starting to learn, heroes and villains don’t always exist in imaginary kingdoms; they could live just down the hallway.

Because, as Elsa is starting to learn, heroes and villains don't always exist in imaginary kingdoms; they could live just down the hallway.

With each letter, offering apologies and regrets, Elsa unravels the truth about the fairy tales that form the foundation of the Land-of-Almost-Awake, and the secrets of her grandmother's exceptional life. The treasure hunt unleashed in the letters, would bring closure to everyone mentioned or addressed in the letters.It tells a story that is both wise and insightful, absurd and wondrous as it explores the themes of grief, love, difference, connection, regrets and forgiveness. I’ve been wanting to read My Grandmother Sends Her Regards And Apologises by Fredrik Backman ever since I read (and loved! So when a child and a war soldier look at the same issue and engage in a long discussion, their respective identities and backgrounds stand beside them like faithful sentries. She would be introduced to the real people who were characters in the fairy tales, and who would open up a big world of possibilities to the seven-year-old heartbroken little girl. And so begins Elsa's adventure, part quest, part treasure hunt, part superhero mission, Granny's letter leads Elsa first to the door of a wurse, and then The Monster (also known as Wolfheart), another letter leads her to the Sea-Witch and yet another much later to the Princess of Miploris.
