Review by: Kim Wimberly on May 28, 2012 :
I'm always eager to read Bruce Coville's works, and most of the time I read them more than once. There's nothing he's written that I haven't liked or enjoyed. This work was good although nothing can really compare to his Unicorn Chronicles series, at least in my opinion.

Review by: endo on May 24, 2012 :
Too open ended for me and I don't mind a little open ending, with something in the story that my imagination can take somewhere. This story lacked enough to seamlessly imagine an ending. If I was making up a good night story for young children, it would be a good framework though! In general, I'm an ardent Bruce Coville story fan.
