The imaginary friends Santat conjures also help to make this book incredibly special. There is a polygon panda, an octopus covered in tribal markings, and Chinese sea dragons. The sheer number and variations of creatures will have readers exploring every wondrous detail.

I read this book to a group of 4-5 year old pre-schoolers and they we mesmerized by the illustrations. I have never seen children so entranced by a children's book before! The storyline is fairly straight forward and older children would probably be able to figure it out from the pictures alone. However I found that I needed to add some explanations to the pictures that were missing text for my age group. Because the illustrations are so rich it is worth taking your time to show or look at the pictures carefully as they add a lot to the world the book is trying to imagine.
