Overview

Sir Nathan and the Troublesome Task is a silly fantasy adventure, written for both boys and girls ages 8 through 14 and for the young at heart. The book is written to encourage children to read with their parents and to expand their vocabulary in an exciting and humorous story.

Once again, Queen Gobbledeegook has called upon Sir Nathan, Hero of Mariskatania, to help in her time of need. The Royal Twins have gone missing and it seems as if only the Hero can find them.

Sir Nathan finds his mission difficult as he encounters dragons and witches and an entire tribe of ogres, but he's even more troubled by a tag-along who wants to be a knight, but hasn't taken the required two-hour Basic Knight Training Class.

Meet the Author

Mark Smith lives in a small town in the Midwest and has enjoyed the creative outlet of writing since a young age. Sir Nathan and the Quest for Queen Gobbledeegook was originally written as a silly romp through a land of adventure for the author's young nieces and nephews. Now it has been rewritten and edited for a general release, aimed at other children like the author's 10 year old son and for those young at heart.

The author's second book, Sir Nathan and the Troublesome Task, continues the adventure of the Hero of Mariskatania.

    Reviewed by award-winning children's book author, Diane Mae Robi

    Reviewed by award-winning children's book author, Diane Mae Robinson.
      I loved this book. The silliness, the smiting, the dastardly situations, the humor, the unique characters, especially Sir Nathan
    and when he has 'lengthy screaming fits about the dastardly tricks of evil and how it sneak about, ruining everything'.
      The author is a genius at humor and the writing is exciting and clever. The characters are well rounded and the plotting is sound.
    Several black and white illustrations are fun and enhance the story telling well. Children and adults alike will laugh at the silliness and
    will love this book.
