Fun and Exciting
I have to admit the only reason I picked this one up was because Greg Grunberg had authored it and J.J.Abrams had a fantastic quote on the cover. It was interesting to learn that Grunberg was inspired to write the story after his own son's dreams.
Grunberg has crafted an engaging world where dream jumping and fighting is possible. It deals with the issues of growing up, facing your fears, and building self confidence. Ben is a lovable character that you cannot help but root for - you want to go on the journey with him.
The illustrations are fun and vibrant and add great detail to the story and help push the plot along. The good versus evil plot is sure to make this a popular series. I can see this series being a big hit for fans of Oddly Normal, Amulet and Explorers. I am looking forward to book 2. It is a great series for any reluctant readers or just graphic novel fans like myself.
Great for young readers
