The story focused mainly on Gilly, and also quite a bit on Gideon. They were my favorite characters so I didn't mind. ;) I loved the scenes with Gideon and Liversedge! :D
Tom added a fun and mischievous element (that children usually do) to the story. :)
A bit slow getting into, but a romping, fast-paced adventure once in!
A bored Duke, an overprotective entourage, a slimy & wimpy villain, a beautiful yet silly foundling, a runaway schoolboy, burning buildings, and purple dresses keep the story lively and the reader laughing.
