Reviews from Around the World
"The Element in the Room is a strange hodge-podge, but there are kids who will find it fascinating, others who will eagerly read some parts, and still others that will only read the comics. With the comics and the cleverly designed art, this book has something for everybody. And those with a keener curiosity will find plenty to satisfy their elemental interest." - Marissa Moss
