*I was given a copy in exchange for my honest review*

This is the most adorably informative juvenile read that I have read recently. The author captures the essence of a child in this story by capturing your imagination throughout the entire read. As a reader, you have to focus on the imaginative aspects of this book. It is filled with the most adorable tidbits of information as well as real life lessons about relationships. We are all connected and must try to keep good relations with others. It talks about how important building relationships are. It also touches on on accepting all of your imperfections. It does this in a way that is appropriate for juvenile. I loved the “hoo-mans” references. I didn’t like the language used for the Grimbockle in the text. Children are impressionable and thought other language could have been used to promote proper sentence form. Otherwise, I really enjoyed this book and think is definitely appropriate for the intended age range. It is a great story and I was really excited to be given the opportunity to read this by the author.
