When it comes to putting a book down because you are overcome by tears of laughter this one is the best of the bunch. Never have I laughed so much at the antics of Jon-Tom and Mudge or the ludicrous situations they find themselves in. Even the ending had me laughing to myself for days, when I talk to my friends about good endings this one always comes to the fore. If you have never read the Spellsinger series then this one is a treat just to read as a one off.
