Opinions will be very split and strong over book 99! I am in love with this one! There is the beauty of language, the play of language, and the effective use of the language — in telling the story, in portraying the characters, and in creating the worlds and moods within the pages. What a wonderful addition to this year’s already stellar line up of outstanding books for children! I do understand, however, this is not going to be a book embraced across the board by most children. It will take special readers to appreciate its genius but I suspect that there will also be plenty of readers who “get” some parts of the story and still love it for the adventures, and special powers, and the emotional journey of the protagonist(s.)
