Townley, Roderick. The great good thing

Townley, Roderick. The great good thing. Atheneum, 2001 [0-689-84324-0]
WOW what a great idea for a book! Here we have the characters of a book living the story and having to scramble to the correct spot every time a reader opens the book. Then they have to deal with being forgotten and their world collapsing as the last copy of the book sits on the shelf forgotten. What can they do to save the characters and their world? I have a strong feeling I will be purchasing more copies of this interesting twist on "A never ending story." It makes you want to promote books that are sitting on the shelf and not being read.
