The Search for Delicious by Natalie Babbitt

The best word for this book is "sweet." It is a nice little book about life and people and agreeing and disagreeing. I liked how reflective the characters were, I liked how, really, even when they disagreed, they were nice to one another. Even the bad guy is sort of a nice character. 

It isn't a particularly difficult read, but if you are just looking for a happy, light little book, this is a great choice! (It is written by the author of Tuck Evelasting. If you liked that, you will like this.)
