* * * * *
Here are some comments shared by the mystery judge:
"This is a delight to read, and certainly sparks the recollection brain into over-drive.
The significance of the subject, 'The Wagon', represents an essence of childhood dreams, aspirations and imagination.
The author has captured the true meaning of this simple discarded garden implement and has transformed its significance into a memory making tool, from which means the character Andrew has built the foundations of his adulthood, and beyond.
Upon reflection, Andrew tenderly wipes a tear from his eye. For me, his tears represent contentment. You would, too, with fond memories such as these!"
