The Goblin and the Empty Chair by Mem Fox: Wow!



Listen to Mem Fox read her newest book here. I can't stop playing it over and over. I am addicted to hearing this new "fairy story" as she refers to it (I am assuming fairytale). It has elicited so many emotions for me, so many questions, inferences and I just need to talk to someone about it!!! What do you think?

Thank you so much for posting this! I truly enjoyed it. Just like a child, I love hearing people read stories/ Mem Fox's voice is so soothing and emotive. What a thoughtful story. Can't wait to purchase a copy!

Katie,

First thought listening to Mem read her story made me think that the Holy Spirit is always there... somewhere an angel is out there for each of us.

And now after the weekend trip I've just had with Alli and some of her "friends"/classmates, I have to think that somewhere there are true friends for each of us... no matter how different we are.
