The authors writing style is succinct, clear, poetic, and fast-moving, and the book offers sparkling images, expansive ideas, fanciful entertainment, sober social commentary, practical suggestions, and referrals to additional resources. The poetry is exquisitely joyful, and the novella is about a young nature-lover who discovers a mysterious carnival in a Massachusetts forest and, because of this discovery, ends up accidentally transforming her hometown. Basically a work of magical realism, the story includes elements of scientific research and science fiction.
