REVIEW by LAWonder10:
Sabastian was a quiet boy. His father left on a trip with his new wife and told Sabastian that when he returned, he would have a surprise for Sabastian.
While his father was gone, something strange happened when he visited his favorite shop. Sabastian had to make a decision to do something he knew his father wouldn't like, or to be obedient and ignore the situation...He couldn't just ignore the problem!
Sebastian and Melissa venture into dangerous and mysterious adventures in solving the problem. Everything is reliant upon Sabastian's memory.
Join along with Sabastian and Melissa and meet the very unique, intriguing and strange characters. This is a fantastical journey to the unknown. mysterious, frightening, peculiar and stunning experiences.
The ending is solid, yet one word creates a final cliff-hanger.
Kim Bretton does a fantastic job narrating this story. However, since it is for children, I recommend that the book be purchase also, so the illustrations are viewed along with the story because of the large variety and unique characters depicted, as well as the strange scenes.
I recommend this for older elementary age and Middle Grade students
I offer a Four Stars rating for this audio.
*This was gifted me with no pressure for a positive review. This is my honest review.
