This fast-paced adventure in imagination is a great way to introduce kids to a fuller, more complex storyline. Branching beyond short stories into novels often creates a lifelong reader. While presenting flights of fantasy along with relatable issues, the author has created a story that will engage young minds. The pages are filled with gems of friendship, self-discovery, bullying, and the care of our ecosystem, all relevant to the day. Older readers may pick up deeper issues such as selfishness, greed, and corruption. There is much fun, excitement, and humor to temper the whole. Reading is at its best when it enlightens, and entertains. (Ages 9-12)
