absolutely fantastic! I like this children literature more and more...
a briliant idea about a boy who doesn't grow old, something unique and unusual for a children lit, definitely going to read it twice... or more.

The author knows exactly how to make reader unable to put down this book Every chapter ends with situation that makes you want to know what happens next This is equally suitable for children and adults
