Review:
I received this book free from the author for an honest review.
This book was such a delight to read. Though I rarely read younger, middle grade books and that may have tainted my opinion. Because my normal genre is much older, it took me a while to really get into this story. However, Im glad I stuck with it because it turned out to be really a great Children's Book. 

The story follows a nine year old boy with a very active imagination, as he goes on a journey with… his Magical teddy bear.
The story moves very quickly, not only with the Tribe, but also with multi-dimensional devices invented by James’s father.
There are bad guys, which would be pretty scary for younger kids. But really added some great tension to the story.
I think the thing I loved the most was James. He was a little different because his dad was always telling him about other dimensions and things, and that made him seem weird to other kids. And though I was never a 10 year old BOY, I was a weird, overly imaginative, Girl and James reminds me of ME. I liked him, and I really liked Amelia.
Rating: 3.5 Stars

It says for 9 and above, but I plan on letting my 6 year old read this. I think she will enjoy this a lot!
