Alfundo "Fun" London was born in Florence, Italy. His mother was a beautiful blonde tarantella dancer with an adventurous spirit. Much less is known of his father, a sailor who was lost in the stormy seas off the coast of Ithaca shortly after Fun was conceived. After spending his youth on the island of Corsica learning the language and ways of the French, he found his way to America where he now resides. He spent summers working for a carnival where he met many interesting people who fueled his imagination.
“I have always loved life, and I find each person I meet to be of great interest. I believe in the basic goodness in us all and in the joy of creating. I write to bring some of my joy to others. Remember, if you’re not having fun, you’re not doing it right.” Fun London

I loved this story. It's about a young boy who works through some difficult issues when he travels to an unusual place and meets some very interesting forest animals. It's got all the elements of a good story -- humor, adventure, life lessons and some touching moments involving loved ones. There is no violence. The ending is great and made me cry.
I work with children of various ages and recommend it highly to children from age 8 to 12. However, it's one of those uplifting and entertaining stories that is great for all ages.
