Editorial Reviews


The theme is reminiscent of 'Alice in Wonderland'. The language is rich and exquisite and that adds tothe colorful appeal and visual aspect of this captivating story. The chapters are short and the story moves quickly. Thenarration is crisp and clever - an enchanting read for everyone. 5***** Mamta Madhavan for Readers' Favorite

A Richly Descriptive Story
The writing style ismasterful in creating strong mental imagery. The depth and layering of the storyline is reminiscent of theworks of C.S. Lewis. If words were paint, then I would say William O'Brien uses them like MarcChagall uses paint in conjuring feelings of awe. Peter's experiences throughout his journey arecontagious as we the reader are spellbound by the marvels that are revealedpage after page. Very classical in technique and flow, simply great writing.

Another characteristic to the story is the sublime nature hinting at anallegory leaving you in contemplation of the deeper meaning to the story, muchlike C.S. Lewis. Shrouded within this fairytale of wonderment are traces oftimeless wisdom that caught my eye.

While this may be a YA novel, it is written in such a way that would appeal toanyone, regardless of age.

This is one of those books that you can read over and over and find somethingnew every time. In closing, I offer this last bit of wisdom from the story, "Listen withan open heart," he heard the flower speak." It just doesn't get anybetter than this...
