Sadie, Jack and Fluffy Go on A Trip, Dennis James, MOBIUS
by Patti Abbott
Dennis is a friend of mine and his stories always have a social message, thus MOBIUS is a great fit. In this story, the three title characters slowly lose their financial footing in the financial downturn in Detroit. Their needs are simple ones but even a sub-par standard of living is soon beyond their means. Dennis tells this story with simple words, almost like those in a primer, which is highly effective for the story.
