Great fantasy novel for kids to young adults. Parents you can safely let your children read this novel. It's clean, funny and adventurous. No wonder, since its author is a Christian. There are no clear references to or borrowings from the Christian faith, just subtle allusions which you will miss unless you are familiar with Christianity. I absolutely loved this story. The characters are likable, relatable and it's exciting to see their development. The ending in particular was well-written and adventurous. Recommended!
