The Child of Denys has a really cool concept of good versus evil in a fantasy land full of both the cute/cuddly and dark/mysterious. However, it is rooted in the imagination and dream-like qualities in children, more specifically Katie and Max. In the tradition of Doctor Who, these kids have companions in the form of a cat and a dog that seem to come from nowhere but instantly bond with their child and take them on some serious adventures. Being able to save the world seems to be in the cards for Katie and every one seems to believe she is the key to saving their world and her own. The great thing about this book was the fact that it was grounded. I believed the story that was being told about Katie and how she goes about her tasks. She didn't have super powers or magic, she was simply just a kid. She needed help but that was understandable. The book didn't hide behind this fantastical image of a kid doing things that aren't possible for a kid to do. She worked hard, she was brave and she got the job done, all while maintaining that innocent quality that should accompany a story like this one. It explores a lot of topics that can be tough for even an adult to take in, but the way the author explores things like grief , anger or dark and light in the eyes of a child succeed for me. That kind of writing is what makes me believe this is one of those books that I would recommend reading with a child. Whether that be your own children, nieces and nephews, friends etc. The Child of Denys would be a great read along story. Something to discuss and interpret with someone else while still reading a fascinating story all together. For that reason and the fact that a children's story kept me entertained throughout I would definitely recommend you buy this book!
