bookshelves: fantasy, quick-reads
Read in September, 2011 — I own a copy


It was one of the more unusual reads of the year for me but definitely memorable! Kaufman's narrative is funny, clever and fantastical. The illustrations (by Tom Percival) that pepper the pages are as intriguing as the tale itself. I was trying to think of what I can compare it to but I really can't think of any. In the midst of all the weirdness, ultimately it is about the fighting spirit of people in the face of tough times and all the little things that ultimately do matter. The ending was unexpectedly heartwarming. It's a book that reminds us a story can be effectively fantastic without having vampires and wizards and talking lions in them (although I love all those things myself, except the vampires!) All in all, a delightful read.
