This tale is told with a perspective I would have never considered. At first I was a little surprised to find the tale told when Gordon was just a small baby, but as the time passed, an exquisite tale began to unfold that has the power to capture both the young and adult reader. Gordon’s unique view of the world is one that many of us could learn from.
Who can not find a smile when a bully has his comeuppance? Who would not wish for an imaginary friend who could really stand between you and the harm a world full of inadequacies a child may experience. By his pre-school year, I was hooked. The plot matures with the protagonist, sucking you into a well built world with subtle plots and well-developed characters.
The writing is superb and makes for an easy afternoon of reading. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a fantasy tale that is outside the canned fiction that many authors are putting out these days. Mr. Chambers’ unique style of writing, his imaginative twist of a world where fairies, ghosts and wizards are real, and his use of time snapshots leads to a spectacular novel for any fantasy genre fan.
