I truly loved this book, and often found myself unable to let this anywhere out of my sight! Carroll's ability to pull the reader into the book is amazing. Even though this story was originally for children, it does not feel as though it was meant to be that way. The only negative thing I an think of to say is that in a few places I had to reread sections just to make sure that I really understood what was happening... I give this book 4 out of 5 stars!
