Very american. Hard to believe you're in Australia. I'm across the other side of the world and even I know there's no such thing as an ozzie (and I think it's spelt Aussie) Ostrich 'cause down there you got EMUS MATE!!
Great story and well written. I think the author was using a play on words but I'm not sure if I noticed these correctly as no one else has mentioned it.
Sad about the loss of his arm but he managed quite well under the circumstances.
Love his interaction with his family and the numerable suprises along the way.
Wonderful world of fantasy and good graphics too.
I read this first and then bought the graphic novel as a treat for myself. It's a wonderful story. I didn't find any part boring and even found more things when I read it the second time. The author has been very clever with names and I don't know if it was deliberate or accidental. I think it was deliberate after reading it again. Very VERY clever.
I like they way Peter asked things that I would have asked. Nice and believable.
His courage towards the end is understandable as you realise after all he's been through has prepared him for this.
A nice easy read.
Even though we have the 10 parts I still grabbed the complete book like everyone else. LOL.
It's that good.
My family totally agree that 1 book makes it a little easier but it didn't really matter. Very thoughtful of the author.
This is one of those books that starts you thinking and discussing what has happened in your own live. My wife read it when I was working and insisted I read it when I got home. Every few minutes I kept saying 'wow'.
There are those that write a lot and shouldn't write at all. This lady, C.C.Champagne should write and write and write. As long as she does, we will read, and read....and read.
I just finished reading this story over 3 days. My kids are going to love it when I read it to them (I like to get familiar first with a story).
Would have loved to have seen pictures throughout the book as it helps the little ones along but it is still a great read and the author knows how to tell a good story.
I've always loved Victorian times so I had to grab this book. I don't read novels about this period, only non fiction, historical books. This was fun to read.
I think the author has touched on the period but a more 'in depth' would be nice. I look forward like the others to the unabridged publication.
A very good story and again a great twist at the end.
Yes keep those pics coming.
Definitely worth waiting for except the kids were getting restless haahaa. Everyone was trying to guess how the lad would learn to swim and no one got it right, but it made for good discussions in our house.
Another terrific book and like Bess, we are looking forward to book 3.
