*****

I didn't have to much expectations on this troy, given what I had read about it while browsing the catalogue.
It turned to be much better than what I expected. The story developes nicely and Alexander Blade manages to show the world through the child's eyes in a masterful way.
Very entertaining and with a kind end (for a more dramatic one, just stop when Bobby's dad gets home and speaks to his wife)its a great story to share with your kids.
