I liked this book because it is an adventurous book with a lot of fantasy. It is one of my favorite types of books. My favorite part of the book is when Edward’s clothes were torn off in front of everybody on a cruise ship—he was naked! It was one of the funny parts. In this story Edward changed because he started to listen and feel. He learned what hurt him and what mattered to him. This book is the best one I’ve ever read because the author uses a lot of suspense. One of the themes is love, loss, and longing.
I strongly recommend this book because it’s very easy to understand the words that Kate DiCamillo uses. In my opinion, 3rd graders and up should read this book. If you like Kate DiCamillo and fantasy books, then this is the book you should read!
