My children and I have greatly enjoyed this book, an interesting twist on the seemingly familiar themes of royalty, magic, dragons, and princesses in distress. Ms. Susskind takes all of the usual tropes of the genre and turns them upside down, with a likable and believable group of four siblings as heroes of the tale. What makes this story unique is that the main characters manage to save the day without any of the magic that is so often associated with worlds of this sort. It would have been a greatly reassuring story to read in my childhood, when I was convinced I'd be useless in Narnia when I discovered I couldn't shoot an arrow for beans. This story encourages self-reliance and belief in the abilities that you do possess, and that everyone can make a difference through faith, determination and planning. My kids and I are all anxiously awaiting the second book, The Tale of Time Warp Tuesday, for which she leaves a cliff-hanger at the end of Zephram Mondays.

This is a great story - my daughter loved the book and couldn't wait for the second in the series. Keep writing Leslie - cannot wait for the next book!!!
