My son and I struggled partway through some incredibly boring books on the middle school reading list. When it became apparent that he wouldn't finish on time, I desperately looked for something else on the list, knowing that whatever we picked would have to be read morning, noon, and night for him to finish on time. Thank goodness for this book! The story is fascinating and well told, and we thoroughly enjoyed a weekend of binge-reading it.
Even little brother read and enjoyed it with us - voluntarily.
This a great read for young and old, which I plan to pass on to their older sister and my parents.
I'm not sure yet if the one-meal-a-day thing really sank in, if it had the impact I'd like. But the story was worded very well, being honest without being scary--and William's interest in machines led my son to be drawn in right away, in spite of himself. He really enjoyed the story, and I think the illustrations are very accessible in the way they combine creative imagery and realism. Very well done, with exactly the right balance of simplicity and complexity. This book is worthy of the story it tells.
