Review by EMaree
Weirdly, this was spoiled for me by the movie. The movie tells the story in a much more captivating, exciting way. It's not a bad story (in fact, it's a very fun middle grade story that would be a blast to read out loud) but it's one of those rare cases where the movie improves on the book.
