Dear God, Maybe Cain and Abel would not kill each other so much if they had their own rooms. It works with my brother. Dear God, Who draws the lines around the countries? Dear God, On Halloween I am going to wear a devil's costume. Is that all right with you? These and other puzzlements, imponderables, fervent wishes, complaints and thanks make up this delightful collection. Some of the children's views are disarmingly wise, some naive; some are purposeful and determined, some innocent; some serious, others a little more light-hearted. But all are written in the utmost hope that their letters will be answered in one way or another.

From the Introduction:
'The letters in this book express that part of a child's world reserved for special thoughts and wishes. The subject matter ranges through those beliefs, desires, questions and doubts that are urgent and common to all children. Some of the letters are disarmingly wise, others naive;some are knowing, some simple;some reverent, some not so reverent. Many are weighted with seriousness;others are lit with smiles. All of them are addressed to God with much hope and trust.
Grownups know for certain, of course, that the letters will not get there no matter how much postage they carry. But then grownups know so much more than children- sometimes.
In choosing these letters, we've tried to convey the incredible variety they represent. Their spelling and grammar have not been corrected, for what they say they say better as they are.'
