omigodddd!!! i loved it! my little sister was reading it, and i picked it up just to take a glance, to see what it was about and all. in five minutes i had read, like, a hundred pages. it looks really long, but it's mostly told through pictures; it's really awesome. it's like an epic picture book. i'm so amazed that someone would have the patience to create so many drawings with so much care and detail. plus, the story was really compelling and original, too. it's an easy but exciting read, and i recommend it for children and adults alike.
