Overview

This is awful, Coren thought, panicking. Imagination is disappearing altogether! Everyone has gone berserk — and there's nothing I can do about it. There's nothing that anyone can do about it!

Lenora and Coren are finally getting married at the court of Andilla, Coren's homeland, where everyone lives in their imagination. There's just one problem: The Andillans' powers aren't working, and clearly the wedding can't proceed when the sacred Balance is so out of whack. For the headstrong Lenora, this means a new adventure. She and a reluctant Coren head into the Andillan countryside, where they come across the Skwoes, who have absolutely no imagination whatsoever. Are they responsible for the Andillans' loss of power? Whatever the source, the problems are getting worse: Now even Lenora's ability to make her thoughts real is failing. What is more, Lenora has been having a series of nightmares about the evil Hevak. Something has to be done before all of the people in two kingdoms are completely out of their minds.

In this companion to the award-winning Of Two Minds and More Minds, Carol Matas and Perry Nodelman weave another hilarious fantasy adventure, full of romance, excitement, humor, and surprises.

Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Marian Rafal
Princess Lenora and Prince Coren are back. These two witty, headstrong characters, whom readers met in Of Two Minds (Simon & Schuster, 1995/VOYA April 1996) and More Minds (Simon & Schuster, 1996/VOYA June 1997), have returned to Coren's homeland of Andilla finally to be married. But when they arrive in Andilla there is a hitch-the Andillans' powers of mind reading and living within their own imagination are not working. The wedding party from Lenora's Gepeth can no longer change the world with their imagination, and chaos is everywhere. The sacred Balance is once again out of whack, and Lenora and Coren are off on another wild adventure. They journey to the countryside, where they run into the odd Skwoes. Skwoes have an absence of any imagination; are they or are the duplicates Lenora had created, Leni and Cori, to blame? Has the evil Hevak returned? Can Lenora and Coren restore the Balance to their kingdoms? This is a lively, lighthearted fantasy with engaging characters. While this book may be enjoyed on its own, some of the characters and the occasionally dizzying dialogue will make more sense, and be more meaningful and fun, if the book is read as a complete series...and yes, the ending hints at more adventures to follow. VOYA Codes: 3Q 3P M J (Readable without serious defects, Will appeal with pushing, Middle School-defined as grades 6 to 8 and Junior High-defined as grades 7 to 9).
School Library Journal
Gr 5-8-In this third fantasy of the sequence, Princess Lenora and Prince Coren journey to Coren's kingdom of Andilla to try, yet again, to have their wedding. Lenora, determined and aggressive, can change the world with the power of her imagination. Coren comes from a kingdom in which people choose to live in their minds and ignore the real world. As the couple approaches Andilla, they find that the people have lost their special powers. Something is upsetting The Balance, and the young couple must find out what it is. Could the evil Hevak be involved in another takeover plot? On their quest, Lenora and Coren encounter the Skwoes, uniformed clonelike people who have neither imagination nor emotion-the opposite of the court Andillans, in fact. The resolution-hard to attain since each of Lenora's solutions seems to create new problems-involves cooperation, communication, and community as the Skwoes and Andillans learn from one another. The book ends with a hint at another sequel. Lenora is a strong female protagonist, committed, albeit somewhat haphazardly, to making the world a better place. Several messages are delivered, some with wit, humor, and satire, others less successfully. Because the story and the sometimes convoluted thinking of the royal couple are difficult to follow, readers not familiar with Of Two Minds (1995) and More Minds (1996, both S & S) may be confused. However, dedicated fans of fantasy and those who have read the previous installments will appreciate this new episode.-Connie Tyrrell Burns, Mahoney Middle School, South Portland, ME
