I love this book and the message. Adults and children will feel at some point in their life that they made a mistake so large that it can never be corrected.
You may feel like you are a loser, a zero, and that the mistake is too large. An overwhelming cloud of doom descends on your soul.
The child learns that this despair is only temporary. He faces the impossible. The character "thinks outside the box" to correct the mistakes.
There is no passing the buck, but instead faces the problem head on and is willing to accept responsibility.
The outcome is forgiveness, hard work, and a humble heart.
Maybe adults should read Bart's Escape Out the Gate for a good lesson about a come back kid.
