Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A funny, creative read! We read this on our summer vacation over breakfast. The kids loved the drawings and all the strange characters in the book - their favourites being the 'wumpires'. I had listened to the Audiobook before buying the book to read to the kids. The audiobook is well narrated by Neil Gaiman.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed I really did not like this book. It seems just thrown together and rambling. I was disappointed because I think this author is better than this particular work.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fortunately, The Milk Fanatastic little book. Started reading it to my 7 year old over Christmas vacation one night before bed and almost made it all the way through in one sitting. Fast paced, excellent imagery and great illustrations. Hard to take a breath and always peaking around the next corner to see where you will be taken next.

Editorial Reviews

“It’s hard not to love a novel that borrows equally from Calvin and Hobbes and The Usual Suspects. If you read only one book this year, a story with dancing dwarfs is always a wise choice.”
