This book was more exciting than the second, Baby Grape and the River Folk, but seemed like all the excitement and adventure was in one or two places. That left the rest of the book less exciting and more like building blocks for the exciting parts. Either building blocks for the plot, or building blocks for suspense! Don't get me wrong, suspense is brilliant in any plot, but you can have too much of a good thing. It was too drawn out, eventually leading to disinterest. But, the good parts were excellent,and that is why I liked the book.
