So this book was really great, but I think that if I heard this story like someone reading it to me, I would think of it being more like a normal book not a comic. I wouldn't of selected his book if it was a normal story. It made it a lot less boring.

Lots of kinds of kids would like this book: Kids who like fantasy, kids who are interested in math and magic, kids who like hearing about funny pranks, and kids who like fantasy, mostly.
It was the perfect length. Not too long, not too short.
