I've had this book for a few years now. This winter I put it, along with most of our "children's" chapter books on a bookcase at the top of the stairs. Lately, this book started trying to stare me down as I climbed the stairs. Then, when Emma recommended it to me, I finally gave up and put it at the top of my to-be-read pile.

I loved it. Many times I'd sit down on the edge of the bathtub to read a few pages while I brushed my teeth before bed, only to get up half an hour later with a chapter or two read and cold and sore from balancing on the edge of the tub that whole time.

Really, this book is just wonderful, and I can't recommend it highly enough. The art is fantastic, the storytelling is fascinating, familiar, and new, all at once. The blurb on the back is right, it is "about being a hero in your own home." It's about standing by your loved ones, and being decent to everyone, even those you don't like very much.

I hear there is a sequel. I need it.
