My Thoughts: I was a little iffy about reading this book. I was afraid it would be cheesy, and the first few chapters makes it sound like a cheesy book, that is, until you start getting to know the characters. I really felt bad for Johnny and his mom. I really start to feel for them being behind on bills, having their power turned off, and not knowing what to do. I really like how the book follows old fairy tales, but they have modern twists. I can't say I'm familiar with all of the stories mentioned, but still, it makes for a great plotline. At first, Johnny goes about the adventure alone, and later is joined by a close friend. You see a lot of strange things begin to happen with them around, and sadly, it is pretty predictable. I figured out that part of the story before it was revealed. I also caught on to another key story point before the story reached that part. However, even if you find out those key things, it doesn't make for a bad story. It ends well. It gives you that 'happy' feeling when you finish. It is, in essence a modern day fairy tale. If you like magic, giants, talking animals and fairy tales, this is a must read!
