Hey all, just a quick Q here about the author page for Sanderson. Why does it say "duplicate"? Where is the non-duplicate page if this is the duplicate? Even using a different link (bookwyrm.social/author/863/s/brandon-sanderson) redirects to the page labelled "duplicate". Just wondering if we could change that back is all.

Starting reading this little gem to my son. Only takes about 7 pages to knock him out.
This is not the story of the movie. I don't know how they pulled the movie (The Iron Giant) from this story. Inspired by and based on are very flexible terms.
Anyway, we are literal pages from the conclusion. Excellent little story for children. Although, if you are reading it to a child who has heard of the Marvel character, I recommend referring to the character in the book using the name from the film, because explaining that Iron Man and the The Iron Man are not the same, and then explaining that Iron Man is just a guy in a suit? Not as much fun as reading this short story.
If I only knew how to write a fitting review.
The timing of this book's publication is as perfect as the story itself. This is a beautiful book despite dealing with a prime selection of the most horrible things life can throw at us: hatred, racism, sexism, homophobia, intersectionality, gentrification and even a very little dash of MRM.
Now, we just need to wait for the rest of the trilogy.
