My daughter/I read this book and enjoyed it immensely. It is loaded w/visuals that kept the story interesting/thought provoking. We believe that is has the makings for a motion picture (along the lines of "The Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe")that will cause you to disect the story's true meaning. Yet it also reminded us of "Shrek" due to the era. Great job!!!!!!!!! Will be waiting for the movie that is sure to come. Didn't want to put it down.
