The book itself is beautifully written and illustrated. It looked like something out of a movie. He uses these quirky, yet perfect rhymes to introduce all of these ‘flawed’ characters who are waiting in a long, long line to see Father Time…how ironic is that. It is exciting to see each of these new characters come along to stand in line, and how he describes their reasoning for being there.
My favorite part of this entire story was the “gifts” that Father Time granted each character. For example, the Witch has always been a horrible witch and no one likes her so she is standing in line to see Father Time for some sort of magical gift to be given to her, when in reality she could have avoided standing in line all together if she would have lived her life with kindness and gratitude.
This book is BIG and FUN and most importantly teaches valuable lessons to both parents and kids, be kind to one another, and live this life you have been granted with love and compassion for all.
About the Author: Joe Spraga
Joe was raised in the Detroit Metropolitan area. An artist at heart, Joe is a graduate of Western Michigan University, with a Bachelor’s of Arts in English (Creative Writing) and a Minor in Philosophy. Joe legally became disabled in 2015 due to health problems, and realized then that time is the only true commodity. This book came to him as an idea in 1995, and played in his head like a chorus, which makes sense, given his other hobby, playing music. The chorus of this book played in his head for years and years, and it wasn’t until 2018 that he was able to bring his story to life.
He has always observed life around him and studied the ways in which we are all connected to one another. He wrote this book to teach both children and adults that we must use what little time we have on this planet and be good to one another. This book is meant to be shared between adults and children as a “quality-time, bonding experience”, and help remove people from the digital screen to enjoy time with one another, something that seems to becoming a commodity itself.
