Review on my nephew's behalf
As I saw from the previous review that this is aimed at younger readers than myself, I thought it would be better to let a younger reader decide if it was good or not. So I read it out to my nephew, who has just turned 11, over the course of a few evenings. Here is a direct quote from him:
Read the story now
"Wow wow wow! Read it again, that was amazing!"
As you can tell, he rather enjoyed it. Personally, I quite liked it, but prefer something a little more complex to hold my interest if I'm reading for myself. The characters were interesting enough, if a bit basic and naive, but that's to be expected in a book for young readers. If you have a son or daughter, or young relative, do read this to them as they will probably enjoy it a lot more than older readers.
