Littluns and The Book of Darkness – Book Review

Took a break from market research, writing and dadly attentiveness and spent the weekend relaxing.  Specifically reading Mark Glamack’s phenomenal book, Littluns and The Book of Darkness.  Haven’t read anything this good in fantasy genre since J.R.R. Tolkien‘s Lord of the Rings series.

Found the book and author quite by accident looking for Christmas gifts for my children.  Reviewed the author’s website and immediately became fascinated by his approach and the story of how the book came to be.

I won’t spoil it for you, but suffice it to say Littluns is a classy gift.  Mark was kind enough to autograph my copy for me and I believe one day it’ll be a collector’s item.  If you’re looking for gift ideas and don’t know what to get someone who likes to read, likes action, creativity, excellent possibilities for a sequel or more , I hope.  Beautiful illustrations and some eerie parallels to our current global political circumstance – you’ll do well to get this book.

Well written.  Lots of action.  Good for kids and adults (thinkers who can appreciate subtle symbolism).  Beautiful art.  Exemplary good guys and nasty bad ones….

Can’t wait for the next in the series.  There just HAS to be one.
