I.C. Springman describes herself as a “small-house person in a McMansion-loving world.” She wrote More for her grandsons in the hope that “one day there will be enough for all” in our consumer-driven world. That may make you wonder if you’re in for some preaching, but fret not. This isn't an explicitly moralistic tale for children about the idea that less is more. Instead, it’s an economically worded story of great—and graceful—restraint, illustrated in rich, detailed acrylics and colored pencil by Brian Lies.
Maybe that's a book for all of us.
