Very colorful, and the story is great too. A girl whose legs are paralysed goes on a great adventure that explodes from the pages in colors. Well worth getting. :)
This is perhaps the best book I read as a kid. Was ridiculously psyched when my mom found a used copy and gave it to my sister and I for Christmas a few years ago.
As imaginative and improbable a tale as this is, every time I read it I am completely drawn into the fairy tale. The story follows Patricia, a girl from Australia, and Thrump-O-Moto, a young wizard from Japan. Together, they go on a number of fantastic adventures. In terms of the format, it is a beautifully illustrated children's book that takes about an hour to read. A truly warm and wonderful story.
My hard cover with the George Sharp illustrations is still a prized treasure. A classic story that transcends time and literary fashions.
If you have children this book is a bit old but it was read to me growing up and I loved it for years. It has amazing illustrations and is a rare but classic book.
Beautiful. One of my favorite stories.
The illustrations are beautiful. The writing not so much. It just doesn’t flow. My kids hated it. I stopped halfway through and didn’t push it. I also disliked it immensely.
a childhood favorite largely forgotten now.
This is really charming. And brilliant with the beautiful illustrations. Still have to read it to the little ones.
I read this as a teen, actually 'discovered' it in the locked 'forgotten' shed full of old junk, so the whole journey from find to read really made an impression on me. I would say that subconsciously it was the inspiration for my own first book, sort of like a children's book for adults. Very complex and interesting, I loved it.
Weird. I got this book as a little girl. I can't remember who gave it to me, but it scared me for awhile. I read it again a couple years ago and I'm still not sure what's going on. The pictures are great though.
Entrancing. To be read aloud and enjoyed with family.
You've got to see the George Sharp illustrations.
