"With 'The Last Dragonslayer' fans of Jasper Fforde's best-selling 'Thursday Next' and 'Nursery Crime' series will be delighted that Fforde's talent for world-building, his skewed sense of humor and his searing satire come through full force."
—New York Times Book Review
“Features the same delightful mix of magic and everyday absurdity that characterizes [Fforde’s] other books. . . . Readers both young and adult will get hours of pleasure visiting these Ununited Kingdoms.”
—NPR Books, online review
"Fforde's foray into children's books will delight readers who like their fantasy with a dash of silliness.”
—Publishers Weekly, starred review
"Humor abounds, but so does heart, as readers are introduced to a heroine who is practical, smart, and true."
—School Library Journal, starred review
"Fforde's fantasy is smart, funny, and abundantly imaginative in its critique of commercial culture. . . . Reminiscent of Pratchett in tone, this is nevertheless Fforde’s own creature entirely—and entirely satisfying.”
“Fantasy readers with a taste for the silly should appreciate the subverted tropes.”
"Thoroughly entertaining . . . readers will easily sit back and enjoy the fun.”

I guess people like it. I just finished reading the galley copy of the book. It is for 7th graders or so but I'm far past that and I enjoyed it. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Nancy Nagler
The interesting title and cover art drew me to this book. Certainly, it is not lacking in merit; however, the story falls short of its potential. Read morePublished 1 month ago by María Camp

Jasper Fforde's "The Last Dragonslayer" almost gives away the entire story within the very first page of the book which will begin a series called the Chronicles of Kazam. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Paul L.
My first impression of this book was strange. It does not fit into realistic fiction or fantasy because it is both. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Maci and Zoe Read Books
Jasper Fforde is my all time most favorite author and I love everything he's put out!
This is a great YA fantasy series and very worth the read.
