That being said, I completely forgot about the religious undertones in this book. Undertones, in fact, might be too lenient of a term. With no disrespect to anyone coming from religious backgrounds, I was sort of disappointing that book with so many important lessons about being yourself ended on such a religious note. Nevertheless, this is a book worth reading to your kids (or yourself) if you are considering giving it a shot. The characters are memorable, the story-line clever, and the execution unique enough to make it one of the better children's books ever written.
Well written, mysterious, engaging, and amusing. I want to know what happens next.
However, please note, this is written more for older children, maybe around 12 years. My Sarah is 8 and in 2nd grade. She's in advanced reading but I stop now and then to explain some of the words in this book. The science mentioned is way over her head but she doesn't seem to mind once I go over the terms (if I know, LOL).
Also, if you're reading it aloud.... the chapters are loooooong. After a couple I have to call it a night. We actually end up stopping in the middle of a chapter at times. They're wordy at times, too. She's a wonderful writer and her word pictures are amazing but for a kids book... it's long. This book will get you through the holidays.
Be aware there are a few Christian themes in the book but they're subtle. I was shocked when I ran across a Psalm even though I know the author is a Christian and I sensed the themes. Anti-Christians may not want to bother with it but as I said, they are very subtle themes, not preachy or in your face. You won't experience God or angelic visitations.... I don't think. If you're unfamiliar with Christianity or you genuinely appreciate great books regardless of their themes, you won't notice them. I'm fairly certain you children won't get them at all.
Whatever you believe or disbelieve, this story is worth laying aside preconceptions and bias. Just tell yourself it is excellent fantasy and you'll be fine.
