For kids

If you can cope with your lead character (a fourteen year old gypsy boy, brought up by a polyglot, romany dwarf) reading peoples' minds, seeing the future and talking to animals so that they do his bidding, this books is for you. Three hours into it, I realise I should write off one audible credit and stop wasting my life. I'm afraid that Salmon Rushdie made magic and clairvoyance respectable in adult literature, but I can't take it, and this author can't do it.
