This book is about Garmann and two major experiences that he has near his home. The first is a bullying experience where he then participates in a devastating wildfire, and the second is about his encounter with a neighbor he calls "The Stamp Man". The title page and various stylized decorations on the pages with text reflect the idea of stamps, letters, and postmarks. The text is matter-of-fact in an almost surprising way, since such serious topics are covered, such as bullying, destroying property, and mentoring. The story does not veer into moralistic tones, but instead maintains a safe distance from morals and states just what is so.
Although these themes and events may be life altering, it is not clear through the book that Garmann learns anything expect an appreciation for his neighbor and mentor the Stamp Man. The bulliying instance almost seems unnecessary and convoluted compared to Garmann's interactions with his neighbor. What I particularly enjoyed were the illustrations and the mix of photographs and artistic backgrounds along with the stamp details and the several pages where the metaphors or crazy statistics were illustrated so well. Garmann is a young boy who is experiencing life in a very real way and the reader is brought along with him through a non-linear storyline.
