    An amazing story

    Lawrence has composed a beautifully written book that aptly creates two different worlds. The first, the 'real' world is a heart-wrenching account of children who are suffering from Polio, but are able to be brightened because one girl decides to be brave enough to show up every Saturday and narrate an ongoing story. The second world is the frame story, the fantasy tale that Laurie creates for the kids in the Polio ward, which feels equally as tangible as the first.

    It soon becomes clear that the two worlds are merging, and each child represents a character in the story. Laurie doesn't always necessarily intend for it to play out that way, but through the merging of the worlds, it becomes clear to the kids that the story must be finished. Lawrence has created a treasure where both stories keep the reader interested and informed at the same time, rooting for the heroes to overcome the giant, and for the kids to overcome Polio. I wouldn't be surprised if this novel is in the clear running for the Newbery. I recommend it to all readers 8+.
