This is an interesting children's novel about two children from the opposite ends of the Earth who discover a 'magic' park where anything seems to be possible. The children, with the support of their parents, work to discover who created it and why.

It is a cute novel that my children and myself enjoyed. However it is short and leaves off in a way that makes you believe that you are truly only at the beginning of the story. My children did not like that. I think it leaves them wanting to creat th

read on vacation probably won't write a full blog review.

This is Piers Anthony's first children's book and it shows. It isn't horrible but Anthony doesn't really know his audience and it alternates between middle grade, older and I kept having this feeling of dread that some of his more erotic work was going to break through at any moment. It didn't, the book is pretty clean, but there isn't much to really recommend for it either.

Piers Anthony's first book for children, I believe. He didn't seem to know who his audience was. The characters were awfully mature one one page, and terrible immature on the next. He admits in his notes that he had a hard time writing for the audience of schoolchildren. Looking for Xanth? Look elsewhere.

This was a very fun read. It was entertaining and witty, with a good sense of humor. It acted to draw you into an alternate world, creating a good escape and left you wondering about the possibility of stumbling into your own "Pandora Park."
