No fue para nada lo que esperaba ¡fue mucho mejor! Oddo y Thora no se sienten a gusto dentro de sus respectivas familias, cada uno tiene lo que el otro añora y es cuando se conocen que deben unir habilidades para enfrentar las aventuras que les depara el destino, fruto de unas consecuencias provocadas por ellos mismos Me encanta este tipo de libros de aventura, he quedado con ganas de mas.

I picked this book up for my oldest son...and read it before him! I thought it was great for kids and enjoyed the story. I think it will be a series he will like. (He's 9)

Lo leí de pequeña y recuerdo como mi imaginación volaba, hasta escribía en el "idioma secreto" del libro. Muy entretenido para el público infantil, o al menos asi fue en mi caso.
