My 7yr son really enjoyed this book. I received an advance copy for review and he devoured it! He didn't want to stop reading to eat dinner, nor when it was time for bed. He even asked for my iPad so he could re-read it while I was working. We thought the recipes were interesting and he want to make some too, I'm not too sure where we'll get some of the ingredients though... The chapters are stand alone episodes which while self-contained flow really well in the action of the book. While it has been mentioned by other reviewers that some of the content may be more geared towards middle schoolers, I didn't observe confusion or emotional instability in my son after reading this book. I ordered him a hardcover copy and he's re-reading it this week. In all honesty- he's reading and that's what matters most right now.As I stated NetGalley provided the digital copy in exchange for my honest review. My words are my own..

My main problem with this book is that it doesn't quite know its audience. Everything is perfectly geared towards elementary children until about the middle of the book when there is a frame of "tongue" kissing then from that point on the story's violence goes up a notch to being more suitable for middle graders. Near the end, there is also a scene elementary children may find too emotional when some Viking-type warriors cut open a creature's stomach and find the skull of their mother inside. For myself, I enjoyed it well enough. The magical recipes throughout are cute but weird and then there is a couple of real recipes at the end of the book, which makes it feel strange for a middle schooler's read. The art is cute but overall this book a bit of a strange animal.
