Started on: September 27, 2012
Finished on: October 11, 2012
Rick & Wylie's Fantastical, Magical Adventures (Journey to the Kingdom), tells the story of a father and his daughter, Rick and Wylie, who, due to the actions of an evil wizard, become separated, whilst on holiday in Hawaii.

Wylie has to work her way across a huge and dangerous mystical forest.
Rick, along with some of his friends, enters the mystical forest to go in search of his daughter.

Both Rick and Wylie endure trials and tribulations, and are finally reunited in the forest. Together, they succeed in awakening the sleeping kingdom, a place that has been hidden from the evil wizard for more than half a millennium.

I was quite hesitant to read this book because it was so long. It took me about 3 weeks to finish this. I'm quite disappointed at myself, I haven't taken this long to finish a book in ages. 

Rick & Wylie's Fantastical, Magical Adventures is a book about a father and is daughter who go on vacation at Hawaii and experience something very magical and adventurous. 

I found the book alright, it kind of feels like a children's book at the beginning because of the way it was written. It felt like it was ment for parents to read to their children before bed. Everything in the book was very detailed, from everything around them to the magical creature that appear. They magical creatures were very creative and i absolutely loved them. 

The only flaw I saw in the book was that it was a bit too long. I as a reader tend to drift off from the book as I read because it's too long and too detailed and I sometimes tend to find it a tad bit boring. 

The cover looks great. It shows all the magical animals and creatures mentioned in the book. It's very creative and it's a book that I would pick up from a book shelf in a store. 

In conclusion to my review, Rick & Wylie's Fantastic, Magical Adventures is a good book that I would recommend those who love reading about fantasy adventures.
