I thought that this was a good book, it was a nice easy read and didn’t take long at all to get through- perfect for a quick read in the car or just before dinner.
I really liked that the book was dyslexia friendly, printed on tinted paper. I am not dyslexic but my uncle is and when he was younger there were no books like this at all so i was really pleased to see a book that had taken other readers into account.
I’m looking forward to sharing it with him.
I thought the story was engaging, short yes but definitely interesting.
