The book is interesting and thought provoking but I'm not sure if my nephew (5) will get as much out of it as I hope. The artwork is okay but nothing special in this era. It's more a book an adult would hope their child(ren) take something away from than a book that actually captures their imagination. It depends on the reader/audience but I'm hoping to pass on the intended message but without the flash to compete with iPads and comics and of course Lego, keeping the interest going may be tough. Perhaps a quiet bedtime or sickday story when their inactivity has freed the mind up a bit for the slower paced book.
