PHATAMOS cover image
Phantamos is the story of a magical stuffed toy that is thrown away and then rescued by two first responders - one of whom presents the toy to his young son who is undergoing chemotherapy. This rescued Two first responders (partners) have a side project of saving tossed out 'plushies,' better known as children's stuffed treasures. One partner, taking a newly rescued plushie to his son who suffers from cancer treatments, realizes all too soon that this strange looking child's toy is no ordinary stuffed animal, but one of magic that can talk, walk, read and tell stories.

Phantamos, magically animated at creation, uses his gift for the good in his friendship with the young Finn, as if this was meant to be.

I give this 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 8 to 18, plus Adults. Reviewed by Juror #11
