really liked it
Read in February, 2013

I wavered back and forth between a 3 and a 4. I don't want to downgrade the score because it's a children's book. I remembered this as such an epic story, but I think that was childhood memory embellishment, and it's in fact much quicker and shorter of a read than I remembered. However, the imagination crammed into 126 is superb. Cloud-Men! I'd forgotten all about them. I also loved the little facts dropped in --perhaps this book fueled my fascination with insects as a kid-- as well as every time the Centipede called someone an Ass or a Bastard. ;)
