I don't need to tell you guys how much I love Neil Gaiman. He is one of my favorite authors. Every single book that I have read of his (so far) I have loved. This is no different. It's weird yet charming. The writing is incredible and the story is just so much fun. The characters are quirky to boot, but you can't help but love every single one of these strange people. Man, I do love my some Gaiman-born characters!
If you are looking for a fast, fun, adventure dealing with time travel then I cannot recommend this enough. Actually, I can't recommend Neil Gaiman enough! He knows how to write a good children's book! It never feels like he is talking down to the reader and that is always something I love in the children's literature I read. Just because you are writing for "kids" doesn't mean you have to treat them as someone inferior. I just love the way Gaiman writes books for kids. (One day I will read his adult works. I'm sure I'll love those, too.) Just read this book if you love a nicely told, fun story. I think you will like it!
Also, this book has cereal in it... and I loves me a good breakfast cereal~ X3
