Sir Nathan is a great character: he is short, determined, somewhat scatter-brained, and he "hates evil" most of all. And although the "evils" don't turn out to be so evil after all, Sir Nathan tackles each evil situation with the utmost fierceness.
Princess Abbey, Tupolev, Sir Nathan's talking horse, and all of the other characters are quirky, interesting, and just plain fun.
The interior illustrations are black and white line drawings by Derek K. Gebler and are a wonderful addition to the story.
This book is imaginative and lively. A book that is easy and fun to read, and a book that any reluctant reader would definitely stick with. It is also a book that anybody, of any age, would thoroughly enjoy.
Review by award-winning children's book author ofSir Princess Petra (Pen Pieyu Adventures)
The sub-heading, A Somewhat Silly Story, is by no means false advertising Mark Simon Smith has crafted a clever tale that produces laughter, groans, and everything in between. Silly it is. The creatures he has invented include Tinker Toads, MechaMonkeys, Licorice Lambs, and Hobnobber Squirrels, to name a few. Each has interesting and sometimes hilarious traits.
Silly does not stop with the weird, strange, and often nice creatures he comes into contact with while on his quest to find the missing queen. Sir Nathan takes off riding his trusty steed Tupolev, a talking horse.
"You want me to climb a tree?" asked Tupolev in a shocked voice. "Why would you think I am any good at . . . oh, right. I forgot I'm a squirrel now. Sorry"
I enjoy silly movies with slapstick in them . I equally enjoy clever, creative, and silly books like Sir Nathan and the Quest for Queen Gobbledeegook: A Somewhat Silly Story. I think this is a good book for reluctant readers. The story is easy to follow, fun to read, and will brighten the spirits of anyone who reads it.
There are illustrations scattered throughout the book. These black and white line drawings are a great compliment to the story. If you have never seen a MechaMonkey, Pixie Sisters, or a giant Warlock's Assistant, Derek Gebler's art will help you imagine the unimaginable.Read more ›
her. In this colorful adventure we travel with Sir Nathan across the land, past beautiful puffy Jubb Jubb trees, through
the Swamp Forest of Misery, past Mount Thunder and all the way to Flying Hills of Blort. This perilous journey is
wrought with danger as our hero must outsmart pixies, evil wizards, the mini Prestidigitator (who really thinks he's ten
feet tall) and baby giants. Through everything the Hero manages to overcome his challenges and in the end makes a
number of new friends.
This book is an enchanting tale of adventure and fun. I smiled the entire time I was reading it to the point that my
cheeks hurt. Author Mark Simon Smith has created an entertaining world for children and adults alike. There was a
number of laugh-out-loud moments and even a few places where I found myself holding my breath to find out what was
going to happen to our hero. In addition to the great descriptions and clever adventures that Sir Nathan experienced, I
think that readers have an opportunity to learn about overcoming obstacles, using your head to solve problems and
making new friends in the process -- lessons we can all use no matter our age or experience.
