    Overall, the book is playfully optimistic and the characters vividly drawn. A charming and engaging read, Rooftoppers would be ideal for ages 9 and up, as well as fairy tale fans of all ages.

    This is a wonderful book and I would recommend it to any one. The story is one that keeps you guessing with lots of twists and turns. Rundell's characters are interesting and this book will certainly make you think differently about the world above your head and the world of the Sky Steppers. Rooftoppers is well worth the download.
