The movie is so different than the book. I sort of like the movie because Fuzzy did not die early.

It is true that this is the best book ever written by Irving in my opinion. It was heartwrenching how Dr. Larch and Homer informed the other orphans. They sort of knew. Here is what Homer say that made everyone 'happy':

"How could anyone adopt Fuzzy Stone, Homer?" Snowy Meadows asked.

"Who could do it?" said little Wilbur Walsh.

"Someone with a better machine," said Homer Wells. "Someone who had a better breathing machine that the one Doctor Larch built for Fuzzy. It's a family that knows all about breathing machines. It's the family business," he added. "Breathing machines."

Good night, you Princes of Maine - you Kings of New England!
