I enjoyed the puzzles more than the story itself probably because I didn't read the previous 2 books before it. Nevertheless, this is a book aimed at children of a certain age and I think they will enjoy solving the puzzles very much!

Brilliant funny interesting informative and did I say funny

This spooky little book catches the edge of things just right - the boundaries of what we know about each other, the line between tame gardens and wild places, the quick switch in the fall between bright afternoons and surprisingly dark evenings, and on and on. It's murky, secretive, beautiful territory. I love when I can't really say whether it's realistic fiction or fantasy because it depends on what you choose to believe.
