The Adventures of Jimmy Crikey was a pleasure to read. From the first page, you are drawn into the world Wallace E Briggs has created. I was immediately engaged by the plot and eager to get to know the characters better. Wallace certainly has a talent for writing professional content. The story read with ease and I didn't lose focus on what was going on. There are so many different characters that you will grow to love during the time it takes to read the book. I liked that there are witches and aliens all working together as it felt unusual to me. The front cover sets you up for what you are about to read. I found it useful when trying to imagine what certain characters would look like. Jimmy was my favorite of them all and he is unique! I loved the story Wallace has written and I hope to read his next book. Keep up the good work and stay creative!
