I had such high hopes for this book: great art, fantastical characters, and a whimsically bizarre plot. (side note: wouldn't "whimsically bizarre" be a great band name?) In fact, I can't quite put my finger on what went wrong; I just found the story boring. I struggled about halfway through before moving on to more interesting material. I suppose the main character just didn't "hook" me; this came across as more of a read-aloud-to-your-kids-at-bedtime story, with little emotional depth or character development.
