Funny duck
but it is a good book. I would recommend it to anyone over the age of, I would say, about eight.

I was gutted actually. The book I received was not the book in the photograph. This is my favourite childhood book. I have been looking for the hardback edition that is shown in the photograph with the original artwork for years. The one I got was the same as a copy I already had which is a much later print and by a different artist and definitely not the edition as advertised in the photograph. If I had known they would send me the copy they did I would not have bought it. shame!!!!

The packaging for the book is great and the book arrived earlier than I expected.
The book is as described and in a better condition than I thought. :)

Every kid should read this book. It was one of my favorites after the only copy was discarded from my library for 10 cents and I was lucky enough to grab it. This is quite a long review because I want everyone to take notice of this book immediately. If you landed on this page, BUY THIS BOOK. It has been forgotten on dusty shelves and sold are library yard sales to afford Lewis Carol too long.

Muffler is a traditional foundling hero for that era of fantasy, but he's more accessible than almost any but Harry Potter. Compared to any single Potter book, I found Grimbold more rich, if, of course, much shorter, and better written. It is stimulating for young minds and fun for older ones. The adventures are classics, the characters are unforgettable and the Night World is tempting but also frightening. It contains many lessons kids into fantasy shouldn't forget, such as "Just like everything beautiful, it is dangerous", to evaluate deals well because of hidden costs/fine print, that not everyone ugly or frightening is actually bad (and likewise that not everything is as it seems), that adopted children are just as loved as biological children, that good people can do bad deeds and people deserve second chances, that friendship is incomparable valuable, that risks are sometimes necessary and that cats, even the heroes, are not trustworthy (ha ha).

Beyond being a captivating fantasy, the poetry is just great. I still remember most of it because I liked it so much that I memorized it.

This book straddles many lines: it's a book that can be read to young children; it can be read by young adults making their first forays into book-length fiction; and it can be read and enjoyed by adults looking to recapture some of the magic of childhood. There is a lot of wisdom contained in its pages, far more than in most "adult" novels.

At the same time, Grimbold is a very manageable read. The book is not long and stands alone -- this is no multi-volume series of 500+ page tomes. Further, it is divided into chapters that form an overall story in sequence yet stand alone as episodes, providing easy stopping points for daily/nightly reading. The vocabulary is not difficult, and the fact that paragraphs are short should make reading it less daunting than, say, a Harry Potter book, whether it's being read aloud or internally.

The praise heaped on many "young adult" books today is that they're helping young adults accept and enjoy reading as a form of storytelling, alongside more visual forms like TV and movies. That's well and good, but Grimbold's Other World goes beyond that. It doesn't just tell an interesting story, it tells it well. It's a book that can help people learn to enjoy written stories as an art form -- it can help foster an appreciation of language in itself, rather than seeing it as just a medium to transmit stories. It's simply the most well-written, well-told young adult story I can remember reading: a classic of the genre that deeply needs to find its way back into print.

Dad read us Grimbold's Other World,and this is what I think of it:
Muffler,brought up by farmers, meets Grimbold the cat, who takes the boy into the Night World, where cats grow enormous and dogs quiver like mice,and where Sable,the merciless sorcerer, lives in Red Tower, with his mischeivous son, Gareth. Gareth always defys his father,and gets into rather serious trouble, but Muffler and Grimbold help him.
Muffler also meets the Hob,who lives in the barn and is the luck of the farm,and Madam Nettleweb, Sable's scatty sister.
This is a fabulous book,full of magic and mystery. I recommend it for any age from 7 and upwards.
