Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5–9—An upbeat fairy-tale adventure, this final installment in the trilogy is sure to entertain fans of the first two books. The kingdom of Zandelphia-Beaurivage is abuzz with the arrival of the new royal baby, Princess Poppy, but "happy ever after" never lasts long for King Christian and Queen Marigold. They rid the kingdom of the evil Queen Olympia, but now two of her most heartless and fearsome lackeys, the Terrible Two, snatch the baby in revenge. What ensues is a rescue effort involving characters from the previous books who team up with a new cast, including a dragon, a librarian, and a blacksmith. The story is filled with humor, both witty and ridiculous, that will keep readers amused throughout the quick-paced yet predictable plot.—Betsy Davidson, Cortland Free Library, NY
From the Publisher

"A delicious confection for fans of the previous operettas, reminiscent in tone and content to Patricia Wrede's Enchanted Forest Chronicles."

Booklist

Children's Literature - Debra Lampert-Rudman
A book about a royal baby, seeking to tie up a fun-filled fantasy trilogy started by Once Upon a Marigold and Twice Upon a Marigold, could possibly become the most popular beach read for middle graders, in this, the summer of the real Royal Baby's birth. Jean Ferris' Thrice Upon a Marigold: A Royal Kidnapping Caper brings together an unlikely band including the Ex-Torturer-in-Chief and Ex-Poisoner-in-Chief's children, a wizard, a dragon, and an elephant to rescue the kidnapped Princess Poppy. Although the premise sounds scary, Ferris' handling of King Christian and Queen Marigold's baby's dilemma leaves readers hopeful, while anxiously attempting to solve the mystery throughout. The story stands on its own for those who have not read the previous two books in the trilogy, however, once introduced to these likeable characters, young readers will want to start at the beginning and complete the trilogy. Dungeons, romance, royal trappings, and an included moral teaching readers to live each day to its fullest—here is to Carpe diem ever after! Reviewer: Debra Lampert-Rudman
Kirkus Reviews
A royal kidnapping leads to romance for the rescuers and justice for the culprits in this airy series' latest episode. Court librarian Phoebe and bookish young blacksmith Sebastian have only just met when evidence emerges that their evil fathers--ex–torturer-in-chief Boris and former official poisoner Vlad, respectively--are responsible for newborn Princess Poppy's disappearance. The news sends them, along with King Christian and Queen Marigold, in hot pursuit into the local magic forest. Much blundering about ensues for pursuers and pursued alike as various tricks, traps and reversals of fortune play out to an intrepid rescue, a summary comeuppance and a round of newly minted friendships. The adventure closes with a grand Welcome Party for Poppy with Cinderella, Santa Claus and various fairies in attendance. As before, the author dishes up a tale well-stocked with broadly drawn characters and fairy-tale conventions knocked slightly askew. Both cogent side comments ("Nobody ever gets enough appreciation, even kings") and throwaway references to, for instance, venti-size flagons of mead ("Breakfast of champions") add spice. A delicious confection for fans of the previous operettas, reminiscent in tone and content to Patricia Wrede's Enchanted Forest Chronicles. (Fantasy. 11-13)
