Hatke superbly uses illustration and dialogue to quickly bring readers close to the characters. Bringing in autism and homeschooling, the author also draws in readers that don't typically see their experiences expressed through characters. The plot is a fresh twist on a classic fairy tale; we can't wait for the continuation! My kids aged 5 through 12 all read and enjoyed it...and so did I!
I enjoyed the first book better than the second because I really liked all of the character development that he did while introducing the main characters. Really cool concept for a re-make of an old classic. Superb illustrations too! Keep writing Ben Hatke!

Anyone, I believe, will enjoy this adventurous story, but with a young child who needs a lot of extra care, and a teenager in our house who needs to sometimes be *very* grown up, it just hit right on the spot here.
BTW, for anyone in that same situation, and who likes fantasy, I recommend also seeing the filim "Superbrother" by Birger Larsen. So funny, tough and beautiful.
