The Kindle seems to have encouraged me to read things I would normally overlook The Land of Nod is one of them it sits on the same bookshelf as a Harry Potter book And that is why I thoroughly enjoyed it A normal intelligent boy Jeff leading a normal life suddenly finds himself in another dimension the author is superb at describing the fantastical elements of this dimension and I had no trouble at all imagining the strange effects creatures and well just about everything of this strange land The reader always has a firm foot on the ground because as Jeff is not one of the fantasy characters he regularly compares features of the world in which he finds himself with planet earth and that s why I liked the book it didn t overreach my sci fi boundaries of credibility The book ends with some unanswered uestions which I won t detail or I would be giving things away so I am hoping this means a seuelI would without a shadow of a doubt snap it up in a jiff
