My students love it

I'm a third grade teacher, and on a whim I picked up this book for my classroom library. I'm so glad I did! Not only did I love the book, my students have gone wild over it. Every student who has picked it up has been drawn into the story almost instantly. There have been actual fights over who gets to read it next, and they are always disappointed to hear that there's no second book as of yet. I haven't had a book go over this well in a long time!

Beautiful journey into another world

The imagination of the author is a powerful vehicle that will take you for a breathtaking flight you'll remember for years. I'd recommend the comic for all ex-children :) and all children 12 and up (8-11 if they are emotionally strong and supervised). But parents should read it first and accompany the younger children as some events shown in the comic raise very strong emotions.

Great book

My son, almost 8, read that book in 2 days and it's not usual for him. We can't wait for the next books. We'll look for more books from this author!

One of the best books I ever read.....

It was a gift from my neighbors and I loved this book. It was about a brother and sister that were trying to save their mom with the help of mechanical robots and thingees. They overcome lots of monsters. That is why I liked the book.

Kazu's best work yet

Kazu has done a bunch of things so far: Flight 1,2,3, and 4 and Daisy Kutter are what he is best know for. But this is his best work yet. The story is easy to follow and quick to read. The book has great visual style and feeling. I look forward to book 2.
