Kimo and Madame PeleS grandmother do not evacuate as the scientists advise them to for the grandmother. The Good This book had a lot of old school charm going for it It's also nice to see a church being mentionedThe Bad It's a bit short and the story didn't do much for meConclusion At garage sales thrift stores library sales and similar places you can find the most obscure books alongside bestsellers That's where I found this one While good for what it was it still wasn't that greatwhich is likely why it's out of print by now
