I started reading The Caretaker of Imagination and was immediately entranced. This is a fun and altogether unique book for children of any age. In the story, an adult (John) is bored with his dull life, void of any real unbridled happiness and pure joy. I mean really, who hasn't been there in their life? Anywho, John takes up with a plan to add some spice and zing in his life, and sets off in a road trip with his faithful cat Theo (who is hilarious by the way) on an adventure. They encounter pirates, magical Woodland creatures and a special caretaker along their journey.
I love the fact that this book is in an easy chapter form for smaller children. There are still assorted pictures in the book and it's perfect to read a chapter or two a night. I also really love that children can love this book regardless of gender. It had everything.
I received this book in exchange for my unbiased opinion, and I highly recommend reading it with your kids. My daughter loves Theo's real cat disposition. Trust me.
