5.0 out of 5 stars Great Relationships in this book, February 21, 2005
A Kid's Review
This review is from: Once Upon a Marigold (Hardcover)
I have read this book three times through, and I can't get enough of it. I especially love the realationships Jean Ferris builds. First of all, the relationship between Ed and Christian. It starts out with Ed finding Christian in the forest. He decides to take him home for the night since it was getting late, and thinking that he would find his parents later. Well the next day Chris won't let him find his parents, and that really annoys Ed. So, it starts out with Ed really disliking this little boy, but as the years go on, he really starts to love the kid. When Christian is about 17, he starts p-mailing (communication by carrier pigeons) Princess Marigold of the neighboring kingdom. They build a strong friendship, and when her castle's gamekeeper offers Chris a job at the castle, Christian really starts to think about leaving Ed. Then when Ed sits him down and tells him that he thinks Christian should get out in the real world, Christian agrees even though they both would rather Christian stayed. So Christian gets a job at the castle and discovers a plot against Marigold and her father. One thing leads to another, and Marigold's engaged. However, you'll have to read the book to find out who to. (Here's a hint, it's not Christian) All in all, this is a very good read,and I recommend it for all ages. Also, I just want to say that I find it very interesting how even though Ed is a troll, he is a very protective, loving, kind, and understanding father to Christian.
