I am sure many would like to compare this series to Harry Potter. It does have wizards after all. But making that comparison would set readers up for some disappointment. This series is nowhere near as deep and certainly not as serious. You needn't fear these books will scare your children. It is like all the villains have safety corners on them. So there really is never a chance of things getting bad.
This book really wanders quite a bit. At times there is definitely more tangent then forward momentum for the story. I just don't think any of the characters could take anything seriously. But finally after many many tangents and silly moments the book concludes. I wasn't as satisfied with the ending as I was hoping. It felt more like an open ending just in case the publisher wants more books in the future.
