I loved this book but then I'm usually considered strange so no wonder I thought the story was great. What happens when you find a strange coin with strange and stranger on each side. Imagine your dreams coming true? Imagine the words in a fairy tale coming to life. The pictures were good and rather funny.

Ed had to find The stranger but who could it be? Would the world be better if all strangeness disappeared from the world? Why are strange things happening to a very ordinary boy?

I didn't expect The Stranger to be who it was but if you think about it then it does make sense and I'm glad that Ed did decide to pass the coin on to The stranger and not let things become dull and boring and that he embraces the strangeness in the world.

I'm looking forward to reading Book 2 and see what else can happen in Looniverse.

This is a fun little book. A young boy called Ed is your average, run-of-the-mill kid who finds a strange coin on the ground one day. He decides to keep it and before he knows it strange things begin happening around him. However, the words on the coin begin to fade and Ed must find The Stranger to give the coin to otherwise there will never be any strangeness in the world ever again.

This is a great book, especially if you have a child who may be a bit wary of being 'strange' as it happily points out that without strangeness or strange things being thought up then people like Einstein wouldn't have done what they did and things such as movies, books and art wouldn't exist without that strangeness in the world.

This also uses a lot of imagination and my son loved that the things Ed's friends were imagining became real (I know my son would love some of his imaginings to become real). It's a fun book, and the illustrations, whilst in black and white, suit the book wonderfully as it is all about imagination and so I told my son to imagine what colours he things the drawings should be.

A fun book, and I have the second one here, so I'm looking forward to reading that one too.
