"Based on the children's storybook by Victorian writer Katherine M. Yates, At the Door is a black-and-white softcover picturebook by author and award-winning artist Maly M. Kiendl. A little girl named Loxalillya has a dream about meeting an elf and becoming a doorkeeper in Folkstown, but the job is not all it appears to be - the house is a human mind, and the people going in and out of the house are thoughts and emotions. As doorkeeper it is her job to let in the good thoughts and keep out the bad! 'If you keep an open mind to bad thoughts, the good ones just leave. The good thoughts expect you to do your job.' The story's moderate amount of text and simple metaphors make At the Door ideal for children who are almost ready to move beyond picturebooks. Highly recommended."
