    Hamelin Stoop is a great young character Many elements of the story hint at the tidbit of fantasy that is included in this volume, always alluding to something or someone on the other side I really enjoyed the roles of Hamelin s parents and the struggles they go through on the other side The first 3 chapters are a bit choppy, but they are short chapters Once those 3 are passed, the book improves tremendously It s a fast read with lots of short chapters, and I could see it being great for anyone [...]
