Young Reader Reaction: This was a fun book. I would recommend it to other kids.

Adult Reader Reaction: The writing offers great visuals, lending to the adventure. The children take on the personalities of other characters, so the dialogue can become confusing at times when the narrative uses both names.

Pros: The story has wonderful twists and turns, so it is hard to predict what will happen next.

Cons: The pace can get bogged down by the level of descriptive detail and periodic typos/grammar issues.

Borrow or Buy: Buy! You'll probably want to read it two or three times to get the full flavor.
