Summary
  • "This book was written to be enjoyed. It is meant to be read aloud a few chapters at a time. Most children won't be able to read it by themselves. Read it out loud to them. Don't bother about the commas which aren't there, read the words. Don't worry about the sense that is there, read the words faster. If you have any trouble, read faster and faster until you don't. This book was written to be enjoyed."--Jacket
  • Rose wonders who she is, asking herself if she would still be Rose if her name were not Rose, and goes on a journey in search of herself
