Read full description of the books:



For undisclosed reasons that are probably only in my head, partway through Theodosia's second adventure I started being reminded of the American Girl series. Theodosia is a great character, smart, brave, and resourceful, and the fantasy elements are well-done and unique. What tripped me up was that I could never figure out how I was supposed to feel about Theodosia's parents. It's the classic kid-adventure dilemma: the parents have to be dim or uncaring enough to let the life-threatening adventure take place, when, as Katherine Paterson points out, it's the job of capable and well-meaning parents to *stop* anything like that from happening. But in a lighthearted adventure, the parents can't be too depressingly horrible. To me, Theodosia's parents wavered among "loving but absentminded," "comic-relief buffoons" and "cruel and uncaring." It distracted me from the rest of the otherwise terrific story.
