The cover of the book is quite attractive more specially for children or teenagers. As to question within their minds about the book. The narration is quite enticing except for the fact that the descriptions interfere to bore you. The character of the protagonist of the novel is beautifully presented and is remarkable from the part of the author. The language is simple and easy to comprehend; perhaps the author has kept the teens in his mind, while writing this story. The author has creatively construed the plot without any snags in between.
The major themes the author has dealt in the book are relationships, friendship, virtues like courage, stage of life: childhood, and young mind at adventure etc.
