A New Classic

This has been my favorite book ever since my Dad read it to me at the age of 6, I'm now 16 and make it a point to read it once a year. The plot is so origional that it takes your breath away, I developed a love for books and reading from hearing about a book from the character's point of view.

The Great Good Thing

I loved every moment of this book! I didn't think I'd enjoy it at all but it a very unique story and I will read the sequels asap! I thought it would only appeal to younger years but I found myself unable to put it down and even found myself wondering if it was a good idea to leave the book open when I went to bed! Really captured my imagination. I love this book.

Stays with You, in the Back of Your Mind

An imaginative story about what happens to the characters in books when we put them down. When I was younger it was one of my favorites, and I still think of it whenever I stick my finger in a book to keep my place.
There is some fire, set by a child, so if you're trying to discourage a firestarter, this could either help or hinder your efforts.

A Must Read for All Ages

The Great Good Thing captured me with the adventures and the drama. Every part of this book was suspenseful. I just couldn't put the book down! I am definitely going to read the sequels!

Sweet and whimsical

This was one of my favorite childhood books. It's a delightful blend of characters, wit, adventure, and questions, and thinking children will be universally intrigued by the premise.
