    Fantastisk bok, karaktärerna är välgjorda och du kan inte hata barnen i boken. Jag är inte den som vanligtvis gillar barn, men barnen i den här boken är så gulliga och roliga. Utöver det gillar jag också världen och såklart huvudkaraktären, men Arthur är att dö för. Perfekt skriven bok och ser fram emot bok två.
