This is a moving book that praises courage, thrift and unity. The author Uyra Bi Williams, she cares about the "depth" of the story, whether there is a "serious" effect after reading it, and this kind of seriousness must be interesting and humorous.

Her works make people experience time and time again: in simple things, discover the beauty and joy of life. In the fairy tale books she created, brave and strong female characters often appear.

Some delivered pizza, ice cream, some curtains, some carpets, some cutlery, and some toys. But what was touching was They received a lot of applause and felt warm. After that, the tips earned by my mother’s hard work, the money earned by the little girl peeling onions and washing bottles, and the money my grandmother used to bargain to save money are all stored in a large glass bottle. The common dream of the three is to buy a rose pattern. Flannel sofa, a comfortable sofa. When the copper plates in the bottle were full, they had the sofa of their dreams as they wished.
