City of Thirst; Carrie Ryan

City of ThirstCity of Thirst by Carrie Ryan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What an imaginative series - not quite as clever as The Phantom Tollbooth (but then, what is?) yet with definite overtones of that book (the Bintheyre Map, for example, or the places they travel). Marrill's journey into the Pirate Stream also has hints of The Voyage of the Dawn Treader and many other MG fantasy journey books, which will delight readers who know those books in the same way the adult jokes in current animated moves delight the adults while not confusing the younger readers/viewers. Even better, for readers who haven't read the first book (The Map to Everywhere) it's easy to catch on and move forward.
