James D. Maxon (1977-Present) was born at Elmendorf Air Force Base in Anchorage, Alaska. His parents were divorced when he was just three-years-old. Raised in a strictly female household, James grew up in the midst of mental illness and depression. He, himself, struggled in school due to a learning disability. Without a positive male role model, James learned how difficult it can be for children to realize their true potential. Having acquired a love for fantasy at a young age, he began to write stories of his own, providing children and teens with messages of faith, hope, and insight. Overcoming his disability, James graduated college with a 4.0 GPA. He deepened his connection to the creative world by following a career in design. He now lives with his wife and daughter in a suburb of Minneapolis, Minnesota, and spends much of his free time applying his imagination to the real world.

I'm reviewing this based on my CHILD's reaction, as this is a juvenile novel. It's written in fairy tale style, so the characters and dialog are unrealistic in that sense, but the story has a good message and my daughter truly enjoyed it. I read it to her chapter by chapter each night at bedtime, and she would always ask me to please keep going! She had no problem following the story, or keeping the characters straight. I definitely recommend the book, and it's predecessor "The Cat Who Made Nothing Something Again" which I read to my kids last year and they both enjoyed it.
I have not read this yet but it sounds interesting.
