This book is a great mix between an adventure and a mystery. Good for all ages, it will quickly become your favorite book of all time. It may be 500 pages, but you only read about 300. The rest are filled with amazing pictures that picture the story for you. No book I have read is as astounding as this.   
Similar authors or titles?: 
None. It is truly unique.

Definitely.
