This book was fantastic! The diction was superb, I have never read a book meant for a young audience that has a plethora of perfect word choices. I am absolutely thrilled! The world and characters that Johnson creates are zany and quirky! Johnson takes a fresh, creative, and even hysterically comedic view of mythical, extraterrestrial, and paranormal life. The whole book is riddled with suspense, a little tragedy here and there, a bit of horror and terror, as well as humor in the worst situations. I find this book more than satisfactory, it is astonishing! I found the interaction between adults and children very satisfying. It is very hard to find a book these days that has a parent-child relationship as amiable as this one. Overall this book is taking the new and turning it upside-down, putting it in a blender and taking out a unique approach to the world. I give this book five stars!
