Puppet Parade by Zeinab Alayan brings forth an adventure the reader is pulled into. Oliver and Sophie's lives start out dull and boring. Neither one knowing really what the outside world is about. The journey starts out with Sophie locked in her room and Oliver locking himself in his shop. Both characters were well crafted. They only knew the world of isolation until Sophie breaks free. At the same time, Oliver who crafts puppets looses his own work because of them coming alive.

Sophie and Oliver run into each other and this is where the magically enlightening journey begins. Without realizing it, they are pulled into the parade of magical towns which are categorized by theme. In each town, there's something new that pulls the reader in and makes them want more.

The only downfall I found within this journey is the fact that some things are overly detailed. It seemed like the story was drawn out. I caught myself skipping over some places in the end because it seemed easy to guess what would happen. I think this is a great YA book for those who are interested in magic and puppets. I give this book four (4 ****) stars.
