    I wished that there was more to this book. It's like, the story starts, the main character doesn't have much of a purpose, and then the story ends. I mean, I loved the world building and several of the characters, but they shortened it too much! I mean, I know it's upper MG/young YA and that she has a page set and that probably it all depends on what was written in the original graphic novel, but my rating is still the level of disappointment and longing I felt at the end of the book.

    The Children's Crusade PLOT: Timothy Hunter (whose just coming to terms with his magic) is visited by a resident of Free Country (Maryah). Free Country is a place made by children for children to escape the "Bad World". The "Bad World" in a reference to slavery times were children were traded and sold. So Free Country is the opposite. It's like a fantasy world for kids. But something is happening to make the magic of Free Country diminish. And now It's up to Tim to rescue the children of Free Co The Children's Crusade PLOT: Timothy Hunter (whose just coming to terms with his magic) is visited by a resident of Free Country (Maryah). Free Country is a place made by children for children to escape the "Bad World". The "Bad World" in a reference to slavery times were children were traded and sold. So Free Country is the opposite. It's like a fantasy world for kids. But something is happening to make the magic of Free Country diminish. And now It's up to Tim to rescue the children of Free Country My Thoughts: The subject of this book was heavy for a kid's book. It starts with the trickery of children who think they are going to do some good in the world by going to war voluntarily only to be sent aboard a ship where some drown. Other's don't make it due to illness (because they're underfed). Then we heard about them being traded off, walked to exhaustion in the hot sun, beaten, and then thrown into a cell. It's enough to make your blood boil because even though it doesn't say we all know that the majority of these kids are probably African-American. I'm not saying that among them aren't other races, but come on. Let's not kid ourselves with names like Aiken. But the irony is even though the kids manage to escape their captors to this magical world they're doing to other kids the same thing that was done to them, and they don't even see that what they're doing is still "slavery". Because they're tricking these kids and holding them in a place against their will. It's VERY SAD! And it makes you sit and think about how sometimes when people are abused either physically, emotionally, or mentally as kids and that's all they see and know how when they get older they inflict the same hurt on other people. A lot of times they're even delusional enough to believe that what they're doing is "for the best". They don't even realize. So this book puts a lot on your mind. I felt like the ending was a little glossed over. Timothy reminds me a lot of Harry Potter. His dark hair and the glasses. Then there's the way he's just learning the ropes. And even a bit of his background. No mother. No father. But the difference is when Harry Potter does magic we all know what the magic's purpose is. There's a whole LEXICON of the spells in charms and what they're meant for. I guess we're meant to learn along with Timothy and be just as confused as he is. Looking into a mirror, glowing, and then seeing Free Country destroyed in the reflection just doesn't seem explained enough. Maybe I'm just too through. RATE: I'm going to give this book a 7 because it puts something deep in your head to chew on.

    Este tercer libro nos trae otra gran aventura, esta vez en el País Libre. Este lugar es una especie del País de Nunca Jamás que rescata a niños en situaciones peligrosas. Pero algo empieza a andar mal en el País Libre y van en busca de Tim para que los ayude a solucionarlo todo. Este libro me resultó más lento y menos elaborado, pero es bueno para la edad a la que se dirige.

    The continuing adventures of Timothy Hunter as he tries to figure out how to be a magician. This time he ends up in another world populated by children. The children had been looking for him so that they could use his power to save the Free Country. He does indeed save Free Country, but not exactly the way they thought. Great story and can't wait to read the next story.

    I liked the 2 previous novels, but this one was boring, and left me lacking. I hope the 4th is much better.
