    a superb tale with a strong cast

    The oldest of eight children, Country bumpkin Ellicinderpart Clarenbessipawl talks to her best friend Tak the goat on how unfair life is. Everyone received an invitation to the royal wedding and coronation of Princess Tipper and Prince Tayrus. Her Aunt Tiffenbeth and Uncle Stemikenjon will escort Ellie to the royal wedding in Ragar.

    However, Tak has other plans as the goat wanders away; she follows Tak to take the goat home before her trek to the weeding of the century, but Ellie gets lost. They end up in a strange city in which giant little kids mistake Tak for a dog and give chase. Famous artist Graddapotmorphit Bealomondore of Greeson rescues them and informs her that they are the only tumanhofers in Rumbard City. He explains the occupants consist of one elderly librarian, a horde of feral very tall six-year-old urohms and seven tiny dragons; he is unaware of the other essence. Considered a hero by the affluent of Chiril, Bealomondtore is on a quest to follow the Creator, but currently he plans to find a way for Ellie, Tak and himself to escape from being bottled up in Rumbard City, after that he will take care of the kids and his heart.

    The latest Donita K. Paul "Dragon" Christian allegorical fantasy (see Dragonlight and Dragons of the Valley) is a superb tale with a strong cast especially the lead duet; while several of the kids have different personalities. Their efforts to escape the mysterious city make for a fast-paced story line loaded with action as the lead couple heeding Wulder's advice to follow the Creator by taking one step at a time to unravel the enigma of Rumbard City.

    delightful fairy adventure

    Reviewed by Dr. Karen Hutchins Pirnot for Readers Favorite

    Ellie is a member of the tumanhofer species. She is a goat herder who is educated and eager for adventure. Ellie is delighted when her aunt and uncle take her for a vacation to see the wedding and next coronation of the king and queen of the kingdom. Along the way, Ellie falls into an extended adventure when she goes to rescue her frisky pet goat Tax.

    Ellie finds herself going through a time warp into a city contained within a bottle. The city houses dozens of perpetually young six year old urhomns, a species of gentle and intelligent giants. The children are quarrelsome and unruly until Ellie and her friend Bealomondore, an artistic tumanhofer also trapped in the bottle city, team up to tame the children and find a way to extricate themselves from the unwelcoming bottle city. They solicit the assistance of an Old One who is a librarian and several minor dragons who have various helpful abilities.

    This is a delightful fairy adventure for children in the middle grades. It is filled with visual images which will certainly stimulate the interest of both girls and boys. There is just enough mystery to keep the child reading and just enough of a sense of self-efficacy in the main characters so that the child reader will identify with the character and begin to act out his or her own fantasies. The book has an all-knowing figure to which children of many religions would identify.
