Wed Wabbit

Wed Wabbit by Lissa Evans follows the adventures of Fidge and Graham in a fantasy land conjured up by Fidge's sister Minnie as they have to save the Land of the Wimbley Woos from an evil dictator. While the book is a fun read, it also holds an important deeper message.

All the characters are all really fun to read about as all of them, even the 'toys', have their own personalities and develop over the course of the book. Graham is particularly well developed as you could see him changing slowly and slowly before your eyes.

I really enjoyed the way the book was written. The Wimbley Woos spoke in verse which made their speech really fun to read. Each line in the novel was followed through on and even the smallest detail was relevant later on. This made the entire book seem very well crafted and this improved the ending so much better.

The moral of the story was very well inserted and not forced down the readers' throats. The message was naturally implemented in the plot so it can be read without thinking about it. The epilogue was also well done and the ending could be interrupted in several different ways.

This was a really enjoyable read but I probably would not read it again. I might recommend to some friends who enjoy fantasy novels. Wed Wabbit is appropriate for 9+ readers.
