I enjoyed this book a lot. A Maguire I can actually share with my children one day. I totally enjoyed the fairiness of it but also the weightiness of the themes and the vividness and likeability of the characters. It explores both the role of story and imagination in childhood, and also the construction of identity, and yet I feel like my third grader could read and enjoy it with a few trips to the dictionary. Fun stuff.
