I picked up this book during my brief, but devastating, post Harry Potter depression. Perhaps that explains why I so much as looked at it. Not only do the authors completely ignore the rules of grammar, but they also seem to delight in confusing the reader with half-baked plot lines and awkard-to-pronounce names, such as Vorltrarr, Aurthorr, and Thandorfur. But every story has mistakes. Rrright? Placing exclamation marks after every sentence seems to be trademark of this story. Unfortuanately, it only serves to further repulse the reader. Here is an excerpt: The Dragon Vorltrarr let out such a loud roar that everyone in the easternmost, westernmost and southernmost kingdoms in the Land of Antigua heard him! Then the gigantic creature spit out fire right from his nostrils and then his mouth! The creature flew through the skies like a rocket! The creature had only one thing on its mind. It wanted to destroy the entire village! And the reader wanted to throw the book in frustration! She had only one thing on her mind. She wanted to curl up on the floor and die! In conclusion, this book is a complete and utter waste of time. Unless, of course, it is actually an elaborate April Fools joke cunningly disguised as a book and is waiting for the perfect moment to jump out and say, 'I tricked you! I tricked you!' and laugh at the gullibility of our generation. But I doubt it.

This makes a good children's book. Kids 9-10 years old will appreciate this book. It is not mature enough for older teens. They would hate it. The writing is simplistic enough for kids to understand. There is a little magic, wizards, dragons and adventure that kids would appreciate. If you are looking for a post Harry Potter book this is not it. If you are looking for a great childrens book for your kids, this is it. They would love reading it! I give this a 5 star rating for kids!
