What a wonderful adventure!
I loved this book. It was well-written and engaging. I especially liked all of the puns and various word-related humor. I can definitely see a parent reading this to a child and both of them enjoying it immensely.
Great plot. And I loved Milo's character. You can definitely see the influence of The BFG in this book, but it is still very much its own story.
The only drawback for me was that I felt it could have been shorter than it was. Basically, anything bad that could happen did and everything that could go wrong did. I think some of this could have been cut out to make a more concise story. I enjoyed reading it, but it felt too stretched out at times. It got to the point that if Milo made some sort of plan, I began to expect it to go horribly wrong.
But overall, this was a great read. Humorous, adventurous, and fun. Definitely worth the read.
