I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion. I gave it a four star rating. The story is a delightful tale of innocence and imagination. Our main character takes it upon himself to guard his home, and does it dutifully, though his efforts are not always appreciated.
The story should appeal to very young readers who are aware of some danger elements, without being frightened by them. By the end our hero has found what he has hunted so thoroughly, and is rewarded by accomplishing the great feat of slaying his adversary and protecting his family. Or so he believes.
I heartily recommend this story for young children.
