    A really great childrens book I can see that some readers might find this inaccessible It's a book that reuires attention to be paid and some parts of conversation just like the box of delights could be fairly described as going on a bit But if you persevere you are rewarded with a very special and important story I am in no doubt this stor

    I'm being a little silly in characterizing this book as magical realism but it does seem to fit it best Like Alice in Wonderland it depicts fluid physical laws Unlike Alice it draws no really meaningful lines between the world where the rules apply and that where they do not The magical happenings that befall Kay Harker partake both of the logic of the dream world and the concerns of the waking oneKay is a young boy living in his
