really liked it

A delightful tale for a more mature 9-10 year old (not for content -just for the more sophisticated language) Lots of quirky characters, snappy dialogue and the familiar Canadian setting are the highlights of the tale for me. I felt the characters a little too wise for their years, but hey not necessarily a bad thing. It drags a wee bit and I really wanted to actually know more about the night garden itself, but all in a ll a lovely read.

Favourite Quotes

"It does go to show that so much of your experience is based not on fact but on what you choose to believe about things. "

"Still, that wasn't touched, maybe just a little bit odd, and odd people were often the most interesting."

"And sometimes you have to deal with what is in front of you whether you want to or not."
