My Review: I really enjoyed this fun and thrilling story. Fast paced and flow is wonderful. I enjoyed the whimsical writing in this book it reminded me of how Willy Wonka(Gene Wilder) talked in the movie. (I have never read the book) it was very amusing and had me giggling at the names of items and people. The story was good too Hobart tries to prove his grandfathers innocents, and find out why enchanted items are not working. The author also makes us look at how dependent people are on enchanted items just like we are dependent on electronic items now. I am buying this book for my daughter. I thought it was fun and fast read with wonderful characters and amazing moral lessons and family values .
