Finished it for the second time today.
I really enjoyed this story from start to finish.
Quite an adventure, reminded my
just a little of 'Lord of the Rings' but it's nothing really like it. If that makes any sense.
You do discover more within the story the second time it's read.
Terrific graphics. Love 'em!

Finished the book last
night. What an adventure!
Young Peter, the hero, is a fine young man even though he had his downfalls.
I love the fantasy world this author has created and the characters in both antipoles.
The pictures through out the book are great. (I think
there are 21) . I haven't seen anything done like this before.
I look forward to reading book 2 when it's published.
Recommended for all ages.

Great story. I've never seen a book done like this before and it was a pleasure to read.
Great characters and I really
like the 'little guys' in the story.
A nice progression through the story. Not dificult to read.
The pictures of the butterfly were fantastic and I can see how the hero had to stop himself falling in love when he's on his horse with her. Terrific

Had to grab the graphic novel as well as the text only version.
I was a bit off when imagining the characters but I guess that's why we
have an imagination. It's wonderful, the pictures are really good and the story takes you places that are facinating. Even when Peter is badly injured he manages to keep going as he blames himself for everything that's happened.
Good easy read. Good strong

Great story and well written. I think the author was using a play on words but I'm not sure if I noticed these correctly as no one else has mentioned it.
Sad about the loss of his arm but he managed quite well
under the circumstances.
Love his interaction with his family and the numerable suprises along the way.
Wonderful world of fantasy and good graphics too.

WOW. Loved this story,
it's pure fantasy but there are quite a few lessons there. It's about a young man that gets sent somewhere he doesn't want to go. He's not too bright and has a lot of trouble but as you continue to read you find he's good hearted. The pictures are great, they
put images in your head as you read on.
It's easy to read and a lot of fun.

Like Tom I'd already read the text version . Great excuse to read this again. One of my favourite fantasy novels and now
with pics. This is the third time I've read it and it never fails to facinate me. The pics are great and my imagination wasn't that far off when imagining the characters etc.
I would love to see this as a movie.
I highly recommend this book and believe
it could be also read to children.
Tom Canter on Nov. 10, 2013 :
I already had the 'text' version of this book but decided to grab the Graphic Novel when it turned up. The story is excellent, pure
fantasy and delightful. The CG is wonderful.
Definitely 5 stars again.
