    For the love of a good tale and of course pie!

    I came across this short story in need of something light after the long and dramatic book I had just finished. I am now in search for either this Eagletwerp Buckethead or the author to complain of the pain in my side from holding in laughter. I was in quite a snit. I then went on to his other Eaglehorn Boxcar adventure and was further grieviously wounded. I do love pie, and a ending that leaves you hanging with 'what will happen in these manly adventures now of Eagletwit Boxcart??' I recommend this to those that have a great sense of humor, and of course, a love for pie.

    A fast, funny, enjoyable read...

    whose only flaw is it's shortness.

    Very tongue in cheek "auto-biography" of a story teller/adventurer.

    Wesley Allison's style if enjoyable to read and keeps you turning the pages.

    Fantastic

    I love an author with an intelligent mind and a quick sense of humor. This story (and it's a story, not a full-length novel) is hilarious, engaging, and intriguing. The chapter headings made me laugh out loud. There are a few typos here and there, but it's not enough to ruin the reading experience. I'll definitely look up more titles by the same author.

    The tale of a storyteller. Quite a funny short read.

    Being a person who reads full length fantasy novels due to the fact the genre is based on creating an imaginary land with new creatures takes more than 150 pages to do right usually, i rarely grab short stories. I'm glad i got this one. While not being good in character development or even plot, this story has a unique quality about it. It's just that, a story. Its the main character just telling a story, but his way of thinking and talking is hilarious. Everybody has a grandfather or friend who likes to tell stories, embellishing the good parts, which makes this quite relatable. Its one that should be read by anybody with a sense of humor.

    A quirky fun read.

    This book was a blend of humor satire and overall good fun. There were a few gramatical and spelling errors, but they did not detract fom the overall quality of the story. I enjoyed it and if you are a fan of the xanth novels you may enjoy this book/

    Needs editing

    This is quite a rolicking good story, told in a witty and tongue-in-cheek style. However, this book is in need of close proofreading, as usage errors and typos detract from the overall reading experience.

    Awsome book

    This book is writen like the hitchikers guide to the galaxy. I loved the comedy and amazing ability of the writer to keep a storyline in such a random story. Warning this book is about pie, if you don't like pie do not read this. And for readers of the hitchikers guid to the galaxy remember the answer is 42 but what's the question

    Fun language style

    I wouldn't call this story fantastic, but it's definitely a worthwhile read. The author tells the story in a very unique way I found to be quite hilarious. Plus, it has all the necessary elements of a good story: elves, goblins, and pie!

    I won't bother with anymore of his books

    This was a read for a young kid, not even sure they would like it but maybe. I can say I sure didn't care at all for it. The one and only book of his I'll ever read.

    Couldn't get past the second chapter

    The protagonist's self-conscious attempts at jovial humor, coupled with the author's faltering attempt at elevated language, makes for somewhat awkward prose, and the book was tough to get through. Could benefit from a good editor.

    Entertaining (spell check)

    It's quite a humorous story, kinda like one you'd read to a gradeschool class or something. Eaglethrope is really bad at story telling... his stories are the ones you' expect from a first grader and the princess is always reminding him of that fact. At times though the book is rather tedious because Buxton tells the story and he is really bad... really bad but it just addd to the book's character.
