Disappointing. I love Ardizzone illustrations (in books by other authors), but this book seemed written in order to shove in as many illustrations as possible, and quantity does not beat quality. The story has no whimsy, wit, or magic—and it seems awfully unlikely, but without a nod and a wink that makes unlikely behaviour acceptable in fiction. I'd be surprised that it spawned a popular series, except apparently Thomas the Tank Engine is a runway hit, and I think those are essentially unreadable, so there's no accounting for taste.

(Note: 5 stars = amazing, wonderful, 4 = very good book, 3 = decent read, 2 = disappointing, 1 = awful, just awful. I'm fairly good at picking for myself so end up with a lot of 4s). I feel a lot of readers automatically render any book they enjoy 5, but I grade on a curve!
