Reviews & Summaries
I Love this book and all of his other books.
The family dynamic was interesting too - the kids "looked after" the adults while the adults handled their own troubles. The whole family had a lot of spirit and I loved the surprise appearance of another great character at the end.
The plot was well-paced, the story never dragged and it wrapped up nicely but not too fast. Plus, there's a couple good examples here to follow: getting along with a sibling can make for awesome teamwork and caring about the environment can be a lifelong passion.
