OVERALL RATING 10/10

Breathtakingly Beautiful, hilariously-written, extremely meaningful, incredibly fun!

Wow - this book was an (extremely pleasant) surprise! Never have a read a book that mixes epic adventure with an important message in such a perfect way for children of all ages. The Silver Arrow is breathtakingly beautiful, hilariously-written, extremely meaningful, and incredibly fun! Grossman tackles the concept of habitat destruction and endangered species in a way that makes so much sense for kids, without making it feel like a 'teaching moment'. A perfect read for a child or tween, or as a family read-aloud.
