** spoiler alert ** I picked up this book because of the excellent title - it would be a shame if such a great title was wasn't on a bad book. As I got towards to the end of the book, I started to feel a little disappointed - it was cleverly written but a fairly standard adventure, and there was no ship or circumnavigation and I had been hoping for some adventures on the high seas of Fairyland. But the ending is excellent. Stick this one out.

Sara So this is one I should read then? I'm not reading your review 'cause I don't want to be spoiled :)


Krishna Yes - just be sure to stick out through the end if you feel like it's starting to flag a bit in the middle.
