Three Things I Like: naming things in my life after fruit, loud music, & beer that's hard to pronounce
Currently Reading: Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim by David Sedaris
This book is action packed. A page turner in which some beloved characters redeem themselves, some perish while evil characters ebb and flow in triumph and despair too. This has to be the most entertaining part of the book: the way that Jacques is able to deliver a story that is devastating, and yet in the end, hopeful. It is a strong testament to the fantasy novel, especially one made for kids of all ages. There are battles and strategy and adventure; everything needed to keep a kid entertained and looking for more to read.
