To go n a uest to undo the mistake he made and rescue his new friend This book is suitable for early grades somewhere between 6 10 yrs Love! Valour! Compassion! old though the story is perhaps suitable for children younger then the reading level I lost interest at about forty minutes Seemed well written DNF I remember this book being read to me by my teacher in 2nd grade and being awed by how awesome and compelling it was Now as a young woman who just picked up this book again years later the magic still has not faded and is just as wonderful as it was all those years agoIf you want to read a book that is very entertaining and will keep you turning the pages this is the book for you I know this book isn tbscure but it totally needs to get attention The funny thing about this book when it was read to me in the 2nd grade was it was the first book being read to me that had no pictures When I noticed my teacher was showing us pictures I asked her why She told me there weren t anyEven though it was like Scream osmotic shock at first to not get a book with no pictures the wording and descriptions in this book were so vivid and memorable I was able to imagine what was goingn in the book in no time Maybe this is Kumiko and the Dragon one reason why this book has a special place in my heartSo yes this is a great uick YA Fantasy read that I can easily recommend to everybody So I took a trip back to my elementarymiddle school years with thisne I ve read it before in 5th grade but reading it again I think I would recommend it for even younger kids than that It s a pretty good story but the plot is paced a little strangely The book is halfway Probabilities on the Heisenberg Group: Limit Theorems and Brownian Motion over before they even go into the castle andn their adventure which makes it seem to me like the adventure part moves much uickly than it should I would have liked less The Purpose of Creation of William s whining and self pity andf his self discovery as he went n his adventure Other than that my nly complaint would be the many many moments in which the story read like an episode f Full House it was rather cheesy in parts but I suppose that is to be expected to an extent with children s books Otherwise it s a pretty solid and rather exciting story for kids This is ne f those childhood books that really sticks with you long after you read it It s a little dated but still a fantastic story When a book is hard to put down because you can t guess what will happen next and you re anxious to fi.
