    Arthur Penhaligon is not supposed to be a hero. He is, in fact, supposed to die an early death. But then his life is saved by a key shaped like the minute hand of a clock.

    Brooke P. Anderson says: "For 9-12 year olds, excellent"
    "Average book"
    Overall

    The thesis behind the book is extremely interesting and the other characters that inhabit the world, especially Leaf, are very vivid. However all that became overshadowed by the constant whining of the main character. Throughout the book all he does is complain. At first it is because he can't breathe then it is because he wants to go home NOW. I got images of a poor version of Veruca Salt (the first Willy Wonka film). Since it was the main character, it became so that I would fast forward through his diatribes to get back to the story. Even with this drawback, I still plan on getting the second book for the storyline. But if Arthur continues his nails on chalkboard complaining, I will stop at book 2.
