Another tutoring read. This book was a short but sweet story of a boy who travels to a town called Instep where they hold a famous fair celebrating a famous monster, the Megrimum. The focus of the story revolves around the boy, Egan, discovering that the Megrimum may not be all it seems to be, and what the consequences of that fact may be. The main question the book asks is, "is it a wise man or a fool who believes?" There are some pretty heavy themes of faith and belief, some of which, I think went over my student's head.
