I wish I could get my hands on the second book in this series. It’s got to be one of the most whimsical books I’ve ever read. I like my SF imaginative, fast-paced, and with a good sense of humor, and this book didn’t disappoint. I’m not that good at picking stuff up, though, so I had to read it about 3 times before I really understood what was going on in the whirl of pageantry, weird alien-ish things, strange names, and a general assumption that I already knew most of this. It was disorienting in the same way a good party is disorienting: you enjoy it, then take some time to mull over what actually happened. It did kind of falter toward the end, with a sense that perhaps the author got somewhat lost, which is how it got 4 stars instead of 5. Incidentally, if you like reading out loud to kids, this book seems to have been written with storytelling in mind, and I don’t think kids would find it too shocking.
