The Real Boy
by Anne Ursu
Let me know when you are holding this book in your hands, so that I can tell you that you are holding a gem. A magical, captivating gem of a book.
I savored every word of Anne Ursu’s fantastical adventure of Oscar, the magician’s hand. You see, I like these kinds of fantasy books – the narrative of a single boy, reminiscent of JINX by Sage Blackwood, Goblin Secrets by William Alexander,
and The Brixen Witch by Stacey DeKeyser.
This gem holds magic, mystery, friendship, a lot of cats (which I happen to like) and a rich, textured landscape worth exploring.
