Pigsticks and Harold and the Incredible Journey could be a little bit more exciting. There wasn't enough action for me. I think that all or at least one of the characters should tell their feelings. I do not like that the author brought up characters but did not tell much about them in the beginning of the story when Pigsticks was interviewing assistants. The book has many pages without much writing because of the many illustrations. I do not suggest this book for 7 year-old and older readers.
