I would definitely recommend this book to anyone, and frequently do (as I work in a library). The action and adventure don't stop! Our favorite characters develop even more in this story, and we discover another side to Holly. Eoin Colfer's wry sense of humor prevents the ecological message from becoming preachy, and the villain is wonderfully off-kilter.
Nathanial Parker's wonderful grasp of the personality and accent of each character, even a minor one, exponentially enhanced my enjoyment of this book.
Finding out a bit more about Captain Holly Short, and her relationship with her mother, really helped explain some of the reasons she became the tough little elf she did!
