I appreciate the use of many illustration styles.
I'd like to know more about where these kingdoms existed and how the conflict began. As well, I'd like to know what the conflict is.
I appreciated the strength in the voice of the narrator.
I like that Bernard has a skill--one that is not so common but extremely useful.
I was not confused but rather intrigued that Bernard has a "junk car" and appears to do a good job fixing others'.
