At first, this book was a little hard for me to get into because it's about a magical adventure and I don't read too much fantasy. I'm glad I stuck with it though because I loved this book. It's a very cute story about a boy who has to go to the world of magic to steal the fire of life in order to save his father's life. He meets many interesting characters along the way, who help him and join him on his adventure. There are some good lessons, which makes this book also good for kids.
