    This is how Kindle books should be produced complete with maps and line drawings which you can zoom in for more detail. For some strange reason it opened at the start of the story so unless you go to menu and select the map or page backwards from the start you will miss the delightful maps.
    This is a children’s book in the tradition of the Enid Blyton books such as the “faraway tree” and although at the end there is some violence it is suitable for all ages, a welcome change. With talking animals, birds, trees and even time travel there is something for everyone and although it has a basic quest theme it is well written. It is book one of a series but it stands alone and although it is set up at the end for the next book there are no loose ends that require the next book to be read although you should.

    Engaging tale for teenage reader, April 10, 2011

    This is a very engaging story; probably best suited for a teenage reader. The writer has not tried to ride the coattails of Harry Potter, even though it’s a magical tale and the setting is Britain. I enjoyed the animal characters as well as the people characters (some are not exactly human – smile). I liked the main character and was genuinely interested in his developing confidence in himself and his mission.

    I am at least a book a week reader and have been for nearly twenty years. In all the books I’ve read, this book is in my top ten favorites. I was so engrossed in the world Catherine created that I couldn’t wait to finish it! Her characters are intriguing and the story is unique, something that is so rare to find. If you are an adult looking for a great book that breaks the mold, or if you are looking to read something to your children, you must read this book!
