A Chapter Book for Children
What an adventure -- and a well characterized one at that! -- lots of folk to attach to and lots to dislike.
Overall rating -- excellent! Would have given 5 stars if it had included the end of the story --but since I did not know that it was a series and there was no hint given in the book that it was not stand-alone -- 4 stars!
Starting with book two is easy but now that I have read book one I highly recommend it. It may even be better than this one.
I have yet to read #3 but am highly anticipating it.
