Overview

The madcap, macabre, and maddeningly funny Tales from the Five Kingdoms continue — with an oddly heart-warming adventure.

It’s a fine day for dwarf watching! At least that’s what Gracie Gillypott and Prince Marcus innocently think as they set out, unaware that Princess Marigold has honed her sights on Marcus and plans to follow him to the ends of the earth — fan, frilly petticoats, and all.

Overview

The madcap, macabre, and maddeningly funny Tales from the Five Kingdoms continue — with an oddly heart-warming adventure.

It’s a fine day for dwarf watching! At least that’s what Gracie Gillypott and Prince Marcus innocently think as they set out, unaware that Princess Marigold has honed her sights on Marcus and plans to follow him to the ends of the earth — fan, frilly petticoats, and all. As for the dwarves, it’s not a fine day at all: they’re overworked and underpaid, rushing to produce extra gold to make crowns for a royal wedding. The Chief of Works has no choice but to send for some trolls to deal with the problem, but they have their own agenda: finding a princess for their lonely king. Throw in the faithful Gubble, a slinking goblin, four chatty bats, and a heart of glass that will give its owner absolute power and you have a hilarious new adventure rife with mistaken identities — and the ever-compelling search for the perfect match.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Summer Whiting
Marcus and Gracie have been planning their dwarf-spotting trip for quite some time. Everyone knows that the dwarfs have an access tunnel in the Unreliable Forest of Flailing. It was also well known that Mondays proved to be the best time for a visit, so Gracie and Marcus had planned appropriately. The dwarves are hard at work, as they are making golden crowns for an upcoming royal wedding. But as all we know, dwarves are severely underpaid and doubly overworked and left with no choice but to seek out the help of the trolls. Trolls are bad news for everyone, especially Gracie and Marcus! The third installment of the "Five Kingdoms" series is bound to capture even the most reluctant of readers. For those new to the series, a cheat sheet of characters is located in the front of the book to help clarify just who's who. Those who are familiar with it will not be disappointed with French's creativity and quirkiness. Reviewer: Summer Whiting
