Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! I just finished this in a marathon read-aloud session with my 11-year old. We can not wait for more of J Mook-Sang's work. Jelly will appeal to any kid grade 4-8 and adults will love him too - and hate his antagonist. Thanks so much for this book!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for kids and adults, both! Awesome book, it's kind of like seeing a Pixar movie in that the plot and characters are good enough that you can be any age and really enjoy it! Grab it for kobo or in print, you won't be disappointed.
