Wonderful beginning to a new series! Just wished it was more than an introduction.

I really enjoyed this book, but it’s just an introduction to a new series and an intriguing universe of magic. The story ended without any type of closure, and a lot of questions. I liked the characters, the depiction of magic, the writing was well done, but I’m disappointed that this did not feel like any part was a complete story. For being a short book, it could have been made twice as long and children would still have the stamina to read it, and it would have felt like more of a complete story than just an introduction. I hope I don't have to wait too long for the second one. It has so much great stuff, a diverse urban setting, talking animals, relatable children characters who are fascinated with learning and knowledge (especially of dinosaurs and geography), time travel, and multiple dimensions. I’m very hopeful for it to be a great series for children and will appeal to those from 2nd-4th grade for sure.
