This book was ok in the beginning, but the end turned out much better. I knew what was going to happen to Leven from about the middle of the book, and Ernest (my 12 year old) said he knew from the beginning of the book. I guess he reads foreshadowing much better than I do.

This book was a very easy read, but hard for me to follow. Each chapter would skip to a different charcter and their story. I would mind if it was two or three (like Eldest), but this book had about 7-8! I can remember... Leven, Geth & Winter, Rath, Tim, Dennis & Ezra, Janet & Osck and Terry & Addy. There is a glossary in the back of the book (which I didn't find until I was done reading!) which would have been so helpful because I couldn't keep track of all the different types of beings in Foo.

I don't care for Obert Skye's writing style, but I do love how he wrote the character Clover (Leven's Sycophant). I really wish I had my own Sycophant *sigh*

This would be a great book for 4th to 6th graders, but just not my favorite. I still can't get used to a talking toothpick :) Hopefully it won't take me so long to read "Leven Thumps and the Wrath of Ezra" (unfortunately Ezra is the talking toothpick!)
