A fantastic tale. Its an adventure, and humanistic tale, with humor and magical realism. Kingsbury has written a young adult book that's refreshingly far from the sci-fi, dystopia genres that seem to dominate the stories published for kids these days. Instead, we have an engaging story about something that carries a bit more truth by showing the struggles and hopes of the animals we love so much, but seemed to have abandoned.
Definitely a must read for our youth and for the young at heart.
