The Queen of Mariskantania is missing, and it is up to the hero, Sir Nathan to smite all the evil in the land and rescue her. In this colorful adventure we travel with Sir Nathan across the land, past beautiful puffy Jubb Jubb trees, through the Swamp Forest of Misery, past Mount Thunder and all the way to Flying Hills of Blort. This perilous journey is wrought with danger as our hero must outsmart pixies, evil wizards, the mini Prestidigitator (who really thinks he’s ten feet tall) and baby giants. Through everything the Hero manages to overcome his challenges and in the end makes a number of new friends. This book is an enchanting tale of adventure and fun. I smiled the entire time I was reading it to the point that my cheeks hurt. Author Mark Simon Smith has created an entertaining world for children and adults alike. There was a number of laugh-out-loud moments and even a few places where I found myself holding my breath to find out what was going to happen to our hero. In addition to the great descriptions and clever adventures that Sir Nathan experienced, I think that readers have an opportunity to learn about overcoming obstacles, using your head to solve problems and making new friends in the process -- lessons we can all use no matter our age or experience.

This is fairy tale/fantasy with lots of laugh out loud parts! I read it out loud to my 4th grade class and there were always moans when we had to stop. Every free moment they begged to read more. Great description and many hilarious adventures to spark anyone's imagination. Love it! Can't wait for Book 2 to come out.
