The sequels aren't as good, in my opinion. I agree with others that this is a true timeless classic. I love this new cover (mostly a turquoise sky, silhouette of boy and hawk). Read full review

Looks interesting

I encourage my children to read atleast 20 minutes a day. I am patiently waiting for my 15 year old son to start this book. I just might snag it from him and read it first. It looks very interesting and the reviews on other websites are excellent. Read full review
