My rating: 2 of 5 stars
My son (10) read partially into this book before handing it back to me. He said it was difficult to read the names and they didn’t make any sense in their actions. He didn’t show any interest in explanations or reading another book in the series. I read through a few chapters with a mixture of amusement and disappointment. For a children’s novel it misses a few important goals when aiming at younger readers. Overall I’d say keep a watch for this author to see how they evolve with time but I wouldn’t rush out to purchase this book for a child. I received an ARC in exchange for my honest review, which is my own and may or may not mirror your own.
