If your young reader loves fantastical, epic stories, this is the book for him! I bought a copy for my grandson for Christmas, and it promptly got lost on his bookshelf. I thought I’d read it myself so I could entice him with a few juicy plot points. I have a lot to choose from!

In this book, there are:
volcano gods,
a Stegosaurus in a hot-air balloon with a time machine,…
and two kids waiting for milk.

There is also a pile of wild pen-and-ink illustrations. (I think it might be fun for a kid to take markers to the pages to bring even more imagination to the story.)

This is definitely worth the read.

Would you recommend this to a friend?
Yes. Highly.
