5 stars

[guessing at the star rating / mining my old FB notes now that they are almost impossible to find]

what at thoroughly charming book! i cannot say enough wonderful things about this allegory of childhood itself... there's a nolatalgia here for adults, and a delicious fear for older children, and a cohesive plot that uses most, if not all, the supposed tangents that come along - fierce and rob and i all loved it. (pepper's up next to listen to it)

oh yes - do it as an audiobook. it's voiced by the author himself and he captures the characters are perfectly as he conceived them

once again - loving the young adult genre
