Really bad. Don't bother reading it. Extremely wannabe. Seriously? Did a five year old write this? It certainly seems like it.

It doesn't help that the author's name is a few letters removed from Edward Cullen's (LOL, joking)

The heavy-handed use of novel fantasy terms inhibited my enjoyment of the novel. The characters also lacked a clear goal, as well as personalities. I loved the cover and the term "Flitterwig", hence why I picked up this book, but unfortunately it didn't offer me much more.

When I talk about middle grade I often describe it as needing "that magical childhood quality". What do I mean by that, exactly? I mean that a book written for middle-grade children with middle-grade aged characters is only going to capture my attention if it has the special intangible quality to it that makes its characters just... well, if it is intangible I cannot really define it properly, can I? These sorts of books just need that quality to capture my attention but I didn't expect

I could not even get half way into this book. I tried really hard to push through and give it a good shot, but just couldn't. The writing style is what i found the hardest while attempting to read it, as i has a very odd aspect to it. The plot itself, i could not understand at all.
Charming and winsome without being cloying. My daughter (8) pinched this book and read it before me and she enjoyed it greatly too.

My 12yo daughter and I bought this because we loved the cover. However... it's like this book is 95% aimed at children, but then 5% is a bit disturbing... a boy being possessed by an evil magical dude. We didn't enjoy it.

A cute book I read in my earlier years. I remember I enjoyed this as I read little to none fantasy books back then, so it was a refreshing change. I wouldn't recommend reading this if you're 12+ though.

I really liked how this book was all about elves and magical creatures. It was a bit of a change reading something like that!
