I really liked this book because it is full of adventure and I like adventure. I like how Joe, Fred and Sam meet characters from the past. I would like to have an adventure like that. I also like the illustrations in the book. They are very funny - even a little gross. Merlin is a funny character and he's even a little grumpy too. He reminds me of me when he is grumpy because I can be that way too. (I don't think my mom is too happy about that.) I think Merlin just might be my favorite character because of the way he makes fun of "Joe the Magnificent".
I recommend this book to anyone who likes adventure and history. I think kids of all ages would like this book, either to read for themselves, or to have it read to them. I think that if you like adventure, you should read this book.
