This book is brilliant!
It has an amazing story, and though at times it can be a bit dark, it is not as dark as Harry Potter.
I definitely recommend reading this!

A little simplistic and predictable for my taste but younger children might enjoy this.

I haven't read it yet but reading the other comments, the books sounds pretty good...

Please don’t expect a story like Harry Potter. If you can manage to keep that in mind, this is a worthwhile read. Though the plot is often dark and deals with hard themes, ultimately (spoiler) the characters who care about truth, empathy and selflessness prevail. Children help confront lies and wicked people in power while helping to reset their community on a kinder and more harmonious trajectory.

An excellent tale that is as entertaining as it is quick to read. This modern day fairy tale is suitable for adults and children alike, and the hand drawn illustrations from various children adds to the quaintness of this cute story. Well worth the read.

Mrs. Rowling is a master storyteller. This is a simple and honest story, one she told her young girls as children, but the story is not dumbed down. It was such a pleasurable read and a delight to read her work again.

Once upon a time there was a tiny kingdom called Cornucopia, as rich in happiness as it was in gold, and famous for its food. From the delicate cream cheeses of Kurdsburg to the Hopes-of-Heaven pastries of Chouxville, each was so delicious that people wept with joy as they ate them.

But even in this happy kingdom, a monster lurks. Legend tells of a fearsome creature living far to the north in the Marshlands... the Ickabog.
