School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 4-7-By the terms of a magical stone engraving, Princess Elizabeth of Graycliff and Prince Edward of Whitehill are being forced to marry before their 16th birthday-only six days away-or be turned to stone. But Elizabeth and Edward can't stand one another. Their only choice is to travel through perilous lands to Engravia and convince the engraver to change the terms of the contract. Determined to succeed, they face the sleepiness of Slothonia, the constant action of Energia, the continuous eating of Gluttonia, and a host of other equally challenging hazards. It takes all of their strength to counter their weaknesses in these magical lands in a subtle commentary on the power of unity. Naturally they fall in love through the course of the journey but, more importantly, they become friends first, and that's the fun in this unusual fantasy. Coleman's tale is fast paced, with allies and foes at every turn. The fairy-tale style and Armand's quirky pencil sketches will appeal to younger readers, and the elevated vocabulary will do much to engage the older crowd. Definitions of the more difficult words are included at the bottom of each page. With its quick, witty style and strange characters, this novel will be a hit with many readers.-Linda Bindner, Truman State University, Kirksville, MO Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
