Imagine it were possible to bring the characters from a book to life. Not like when you listen to an audiobook with such enchantment that the characters seem to jump off the pages and into your bedroom...but for real. Imagine they could actually climb out of the pages and into our world. Then imagine if those characters brought their world into ours.

I am an adult who loves chidlrens fiction, and this book rates at the top of some of my favs. I just love the villians in this book. They are scary, but not terrifying. I love her use of description, it's just enough that you know exactly what she's thinking without getting bogged down in the building of the characters in ones mind. I just love the way she writes. She truly brings you into the book as the story develops.

I highly recommend this book for older kids, but not young ones. My children are relatively young and were a little afraid of some of the characters, but I think when they are a little older they will fall in love with this book as much as I have.
