Iris Wildling and Cael Wildling are Princess and Prince of the kingdom of Weirderland. This is a kingdom filled with magic and adventure, where danger and new friends wait around every corner. These young royals spend their time questing. Going on unexpected adventures helping and finding new friends, saving the kingdom, or simply rescuing a horse. These are the first three adventures of young Prince Cael and Princess Iris. Their first adventure is to recover a flying horse named Ruben that their parents have misplaced in their too-large castle, but the magical castle has more than one surprise behind its many doors. The Prince and Princess' second quest comes while they are on holiday at the beach and a mermaid named Undine asks them for help saving her kingdom, but in the sea, there are more dangers than they can imagine. For their third adventure, they are veterans now, but when Terrance, a foxlike Fairy asks them to help recover the missing Fairy Fire, the source of all their magic, the Prince and Princess find themselves in more danger than ever before. Through these quests, the royal siblings are forced to contend with many things they did not believe they were capable of facing. Turning an enemy to a friend, seeing a friend fall, failing, and taking wrong turns. They run toward danger because they never once thought of saying no when someone asks for help.

In Kyle J. Steenbliks’ The Tales of Weirderland, two royal siblings named Prince Cael and Princess Iris embark on adventures to find a magical flying horse, the ruby of Poseidon, and save the forest of the fairies. In their first quest, they are given a magic sword and clock to protect them. Along the way, they befriend a miniature dragon named River, who helps them out on the way to find Ruben the Pegasus. While at the beach, Cael and Iris start their second quest unexpectedly (but willingly) to recover the ruby of Poseidon that was stolen by the evil sea wizard, Willard. Yet another unexpected character crosses their path while on this quest. Will they be able to achieve all they set out to do? And when will they finally arrive back home? Join Cael and Iris Wildling on their adventures in The Tales of Weiderland. Opinion: The Tales of Weirderland is a short, quick read. It is a good book for kids just beginning to enjoy reading longer books. It is a lot like the Magic Tree House series in that there is teamwork, creativity, and magic. There is a twist in the end of the book that adds humor to the story, along with lots of details that help the reader imagine the scenes on the page. However, there were some writing errors that interfered with the comprehension of the story. Overall, The Tales of Weiderland was a fun book recommended for younger readers.
