Halfway through and I think this is one I'm going to want to buy for my permanent collection - even though I really don't like to hang onto books.


Yup.A perfect fantasy for all ages from 8 to 108.Beautifully, poetically written.Dolls, orphans, intrigue, romance, pirates, treasure, adventure, magic, mystery, dreams, brewed to enchant.Since I don't think my husband would like it (unless maybe he were reading it aloud to his grandkids) I can't give it the full 5 stars - but I do wish I'd owned a copy when I as a child as I would have read it over & over & over again.It's got the hallmarks of a classic children's fantasy, but was unbelievably written only 3 decades ago.

For example, one of the special things about it is that it can be read on so many levels.For example: Not all 8 year-olds are going to understand Skivvy's anguish, but even though I couldn't personally empathize, I ached for him as he tried to use numerology to save his soul.But as Kennedy explains, though Mathematics is the Queen of Sciences, Numerology is her wayward daughter, a wanton who will lure you with her easy ways until your mind is ruined and your life's course doomed.A child too young to understand the details of that will just skim until the next bit of adventure, but when she gets a little older and understands, the book will mean all the more to her.

That's just one example.But this would be a wonderful book to read aloud as a family and talk about, too, so I really recommend you do that for your school-age children.
