This book is a bit more unique than typical novels dealing with creatures and teens having a fantastical adventure. The creature itself is not described with the stereotypical characteristics for that type of creature (I won't say the type of creature, because it would spoil the book). Also, the story has a bit of a serious tone (for example, dealing with warfare).

The book is easy to read, and the pace of the story is good. I never lost interest in the story (except maybe in the beginning of chapter 4).

The characters in the book are interesting, and diverse. Most of the adult characters don't have too many details in their back-story (maybe because the story is a teen-fiction).

The story is emotional (due to incidents of loss and cruelty) and has some graphic scenes (such as murder).

One day when Enna is doodling in her book, she sees the creature she has just drawn wink at her. Amazingly, he comes to life and she names him Doodle. He tells her that he lives in the land of the Margins. This is a strange place that is inhabited by all the creatures that only exist in the realms of our imagination. Enna's drawing is the key to entering both worlds and together Enna and Doodle have an incredible adventure. This was a terrific read, full of excitement and fun, and one that I highly recommend.… (mais)
