From our CALEB Reviewers:

This is a most interesting book. I enjoyed reading it, more than once in fact. However, I would not recommend it to everyone. The author is to be commended on her research and literary style.

For twenty years, I was the coordinator of an annual camp for children based around The Chronicles of Narnia. That experience shaped a lot of my thinking about how readers enjoy fantasy.
