It was impossible for me to walk by this book without buying it. With a cover and a title like this it might just as well have had a sticker on it that said "Carol this book is for YOU".
And while it was not one of my complete and total favorites of the last year, I did enjoy it. It's an unusual tale in an interesting setting with a premise that some may not be able to swallow. Did I mention the characters? One can float, one is super strong, one is invisible, one can control fire, and one sometimes turns into a bird. Just your average ordinary bedtime story in other words.
