The illustrations in this book are detailed and eye-catching. The descriptions in the book are fun and easy to get wrapped up in. The plot is simple, but engaging. The characters are well-developed and likable for an early chapter book. Fans of magic, adventure, mythology, and fantasy will enjoy reading this book. Although you can read it out of order, it is recommended that you read the first 2 in the series first. EL (K-3). ADVISABLE. Reviewer: Kira M, Youth Services Librarian, WHI Public Library.
