    1. This is one of the best modern day fairy tales I have ever read! Ulrich Von Strudel was born without knees. But Ulrich has 'tude', he tries to always look on the bright side. He meets a monster in his closet, deals with the evil Mrs. Lipstick. Beware giggles will be a by product of reading this book!

    2. This is a terrific story about six-year old Ulrich Von Strudel, a determined little boy born without knees. And, as if that were not enough, he has just been told his parents have been eaten by pygmies and his very mean great-aunt, Mrs Lipstick, is on her way to collect him from boarding school and look after him. When the evil Mrs Lipstick takes Ulrich home, she banishes him to the distant and inhospitable attic. Mrs Lipstick not only dislikes little boys, she is also totally aware that if anyt [...]

    3. I read this aloud to my 5 year old this afternoon. I'm not certain what age it is written for, but she seemed able to follow it with ease and wasn't disturbed by some of the darker undertones. I thought it was well written. I especially liked how some of the long, convoluted sentences flowed when read. The running jokes were funny, the pictures cute, and the message inspiring. All-in-all a fun little short story.

    4. What a fun little story.Ulrich gets some really bad news. While his parents were in Africa, they were taken by some cannibals. Missing, and presumed eaten, he now has to live with Mrs. Lipstick, the families mean, chain smoking relative.She says he’s a nasty, smelly boy and must stay in the cold, dark attic, only allowed out to eat once a day.Alone and heart broken, Ulrich remembers his mother’s advice. Always stay positive and good things will come.That’s hard for Ulrich when the strange [...]

    5. My class of seven year olds really enjoyed this book and I have to say that I was in complete agreement with them. Everytime we had to stop they clamoured for 'just one more chapter'; even when their parents were waiting outside the classroom door to take them home.Ulrich struck a chord with them to such an extent that several of them experimented with walking upstairs without bending their knees just to see what it was like. Mrs Lipstick was a perfect villain and I loved reading her dialogue.I [...]

    6. FING is undoubtedly gratifying; it's message of continuous positivity is something that we all should listen to, the illustrations are well-made, and Papa G.'s delightful and heartfelt modern fairy tale has an accessible morale and G.'s alluring but weird characters should definitely have a sequel. It's a short but sweet read and since it's chaptered you could read it as a bedtime story or just devour it in just one sitting just like me!

    7. A delightful and deliciously creepy little book--very reminiscent of Roald Dahl.My only complaint is that I wish it were LONGER. More backstory on Fing, more adventures with Ulrich. Perhaps the author will grace us with more books about this loveable (and highly unusual) pair.

    8. Very cute short story for younger children. A twist on the monster in the closet stories. It's a bit reminiscent of A Series of Unfortunate Events.

    9. FingWhat a lovely book for young children. It make a change to the gruffalo and other children's books I've read. Not too scary. I'd recommend for children in year one. Can't wait to read another book by the same author

    10. An unusual and well-written chapter book featuring six year old Ulrich Von Strudel as the protagonist. Ulrich has a major disability; he was born without knees. When the story opens, Ulrich is about to be picked up from boarding school for Christmas vacation. He learns that his parents have been captured by a pygmy tribe in Africa and are presumed dead. To make matters worse, his mean great aunt, Mrs. Lipstick is taking charge of him.Poor Ulrich learns he will have to sleep in the attic and eat [...]

    11. A Cheerful Tale of Hope and PerseveranceWe can't all be Roald Dahl or David Walliams, but there's always room for an effort as entertaining and close to the mark as is this book.Our hero, Ulrich, is the boy with no knees. He's a presumed orphan, what with the rumor that his parents have been eaten by cannibals. He is in the care of a scheming, malevolent relative. Really, this touches all of the essential macabre exaggerated child humor bases. Which is fine by me. But wait. Maybe we need a monst [...]

    12. A friendAlthough Ulrich was born with no knees, he tried to be very positive. He believed that staying positive made everything better. Unfortunately, he was told that his parents were missing or eaten by pygmy. His mean aunt, Mrs. Lipstick, was going to be his guardian. She wants to kill him for the family's estate. Ulrich finds a monster friend called Fing I his closet. Before more. Lipstick can kill him, Fing saves the day. Being positive was the really good thing to do because it helped save [...]

    13. Deflightful, unboring, and slightly weird!It is fortunate for us that the author was able to spare time out of his busy schedule of smiting sea monsters and fighting pirates to write this book. A quick read. You will cheer for Ulrich and Fing to prevail in the dastardly situations that arise.

    14. CuteSilly sweet the app is forcing me to write more words which kind of makes me mad. I just want to get to the next book on my list. Grrrttrr

    15. Delightful children's story!A delightful story with a touch of the absurd that children will love. Ulrich and Fing are a perfect pair. This would make a great bedtime story.
