Younger readers (8-14) who like fantasy will enjoy this book. If they're not too critical, adults will enjoy it, too! The characters are well-drawn, if somewhat stereotyped. The situation is intriguing -- wouldn't we all like to discover a door into another reality -- and the magic is not overdone. I will probably watch for the sequel. This is not great literature, but it was a fun afternoon's read.

IF you enjoy fantasy, adventure, and excitement this book is for you. Much of it is about an 11 yr old boy, but features 3 other kids as well. There are some misspelled words and poor punctuation, but not enough to interfere. A teacher

Although I was just getting a few books that seemed interesting, I was pleasantly surprised when I read this book. It is written more for a younger audience, but is a wonderful story for any age. Mr. Newman is able to create within his words a world and group of characters that you come to know and like. His story is well written and one can easily become engrossed; losing track of the time while the story unfolds. I look forward to his next book in this series.

Even though this is a children's fantasy, I enjoyed the story. The first couple of chapters are a little slow, but once they get into "Camelot" things really take off. I would say this is a great book for nine to sixteen year olds. There are elves, dwarves, witches, and wizards. The book has a very happy ending too. I recommend it!

Thought the book may be boring in the beginning, but i read on. When i finally got to the good part, i was stunned. Who knew that there was a better story hidden behind a bamboo forest?

This is a GREAT Childrens fantasy story. My daughter, who is 10, LOVED this book so much she begged me to read it and I have to say, I really enjoyed it too! A real fast paced light read for an adult. Can't wait for the next one. :)

This book about Ben and Casey is very adventurous. I think that the second book should be more adventurous then this one. The gnomes werent in this one but the elves arent evil. I would recommend this to 3rd grade and up. Ben should be like a wizard but doesnt know it. Casey sure sounds beautiful. I think Meg and Joey should be elves and they think they're normal people.
