7/26/11 ** Interesting departure from the 'human child in magic world' theme. I had an extremely difficult time getting into this book, having taken nearly two weeks to read 30 pages. The paragraphs included so many details - descriptions & names - that I had a difficult time keeping track of what was happening in the plot. I finally got through the 50-60 pages and had a better handle on what was happening, thus wanting to know how the tale ended.
For those readers who like fairly esoteric tales with magic and innocence. Especially good for younger readers who are advanced in their reading ability.
