Pearl is a good middle grade book. It has a wonderful lesson for children to learn and recommend it. I give it 4 stars.Definitely worth a read.
This was a very unique story. It focuses on Pearl, a statue who travels from the bottom of the ocean to many different places and encounters many people. The story is a middle grade novel but I enjoyed it quite a bit. The writing style was very accessible for the middle grade reading level but didn't feel juvenile. There is a lot of depth to the story and it is quite thought provoking.I enjoyed this story because it was unlike any book I've ever read. I also adored the innocence of Pearl and seeing the world through her eyes. There were sad moments and sweet moments and the ending was completely unexpected and delightful. I highly recommend this story to children and adults alike!I received a copy of this book from the author. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

With quiet respect for life and nature, Kindall’s brilliant imagination presents a magical world that takes readers on a journey of the heart. His book, Pearl, delights readers both young and old, with lyrical descriptions of the ocean floor, the forest floor, and the floor of feelings. The bittersweet story explores what it means to be human; what are these inexplicable feelings that trot through human hearts? The characters, who float from the real world to the dream world and back again, are honest and believable, despite their apparent handicaps.“It is the speech of the Big Dream from which we all—that is, everyone in the Cosmos—are born. Someone made of stone is able to hear it, along with small children, innocents, and occasionally, a lunatic,” explains the old, bald man in a patched robe to the beautiful young, wide-eyed, milk-white stone girl. The author’s prose is clean and careful but far from childish or insignificant. Exposed to Kindall’s narratives, children will expand not just their understanding of life, love, loss, and hope, but also their vocabularies will expand in a delightfully organic way: “Proboscis? He laughed. That is another word for nose. I find the use of that polysyllabicism pads the pain I feel in the middle of my being,” the stone Sage explains to Pearl.I can just imagine being one of Kindall’s lucky children, cozied into bed, with his voice carrying me into the stories of my dream world.The Pearl is available for free Kindle download for a limited time. Don’t miss this delightful read.
