I need to be more selective in the books I choose to read. There's nothing horrible about this one, but there is also nothing particularly good. I'd only gotten a few paragraphs into it when I decided that it must actually have been written by a child because the concepts, actions and characters were so one dimensional, predictable and unbelievable. I was shocked when I later learned it was NOT written by a child. So no excuse there.It also did not provide me with any insight into other cultures [...]

Review: wp/p2J8yh-2KaWhat works: + Character sketching; loved the 4 children, and the fantastical creatures.+ Engaging narration; kept the pages turning when in Sceadu+ The idea of a land inside our shadow,What doesn’t:- Explanations tend to be long, and not very interesting- The book that leads to Sceadu could play a bigger role, I feel.More positives than negatives, and a book that’s fun and worth reading.

A fairly good adventurous read. (3.5/5)Full review- wp/p2vbKI-3X
