Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1 ):

This is a real stunner, a tour de force of imagination and heart with plenty to offer kids and adults, a compelling story, and characters who stick with you long after the last page has been turned. (Good news: Next book in the series is due in October 2013.)

Catherynne M. Valente's writing style is ornately descriptive and gleefully verbose, which might have been a disaster but instead brings lots of unexpected delights with its constant barrage of fanciful characters, comedy, and wise remarks. Ana Juan's illustrations are dark, often funny, and add more dimension to the characters.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
