She came home from school last week and said that we just had to go to the library to check this book out immediately. Her teacher was reading this book to her class after lunch for about 20 minutes a day. Imagineer was having a hard time waiting to find out what was going to happen, so she wanted to start reading it at home.
Below is a short interview with Imagineer discussing this book:
Q. Describe this book in a few sentences
A. This book was about some people who are called the rescuers who go to rescue the prince who was stolen. the prince was stolen 9 years ago. They can only get through the gump to save him every 9 years for 9 days. The gump is like a secret door that they go through to get home. They have to take a boat to get back to the island.
Q. Describe the main character
A. There isn’t really a main character. A couple of the characters are Gurkie, Cor, Odge, Hans, and Ben.
Q. Who was your favorite character and why?
A. I think it would be the mist maker. Its an animal on the island that makes mist when you play music. The mist maker was like an animal that was cute. It kind of looked like a baby seal.

A. The main thing that makes the worst scenes is Raymond.
