”A fun imaginative ride that allows me to make silly voices as I read the book to my son. It is a story I look forward to reading again and again as my boy grows up.” – Amazon Reviewer

“This absolutely charming book gave me all the joy of a childhood bedtime story. It’s packed with mythical creatures you know and love, hitting the right nostalgia tones.” – Jenn L., Amazon Review

“I read this to my six-year-old son over the course of several nights, and he really enjoyed it. He was engaged and asked questions if he didn’t understand a word. There were even a few times he asked me to show him pictures on my phone of things being talked about to make sure he was seeing things clearly in his mind’s eye. So, I feel it was a fun and entertaining read for him, but it was also educational – which is a win-win in my opinion. 🙂 When we were done I asked how many stars he would give it, and he said, “1 trillion!” I think Cat n Jack was his favorite.” – Gabrielle, Amazon Review
