I enjoy these looks deeper into the worlds our beloved characters come from. It was interesting to see Christopher’s love and the things he left when he went back through the door to “the real world.” Sweet and a little sad.

So glad we got to see a bit of where Christopher's doorway leads!

This is a poignant short story about Christopher and his skeleton girl (princess). I adored this short story. It is a compelling love story providing depth and life to Mariposa, the world of bones where Christopher belongs ;) 

The prose was lyrical, the story imaginative, and the details meaningful. Christopher’s bone flute is now has so much more meaning!
