I highly recommend having read the entire Saga and Pembrick's Creaturepedia before reading The Tales or many things won't be funny or meaningful without the background. The Creaturepedia is a MUST for the story by Jennifer Trafton, or it will be just plain crazy and confusing. After reading the Creaturepedia, my husband and I were thoroughly prepared and LOVED that particular tale. Jennifer completely captured "Ollister's" style!
Of course, Andrew Peterson's tale is perfect, an adventure in Yorsha Doon! (I loved learning more about the world of Aerwiar.) And a reappearance of a beloved character...
A. S. Peterson's tale may have been my favorite though... It's hard to choose, but I was completely caught up in this story of Podo's dragon hunting day and the beginning of Yurgen's hatred for him. "Biddies," "Huggables," and "Sqryms" are now ridiculously common terms around our house.
Unfortunately, I have not read N.D. Wilson's books, but knew about the Raggant from the Creaturepedia and was familiar with the 100 Cupboards concept, which helped in his short story about young Podo and the cupboards.
Jonathan Rogers ballad was fun to read and a real treat considering it is from a footnote in "On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness."
McKelvey's "short" story is about 150 pages long. Seriously! What a gift! It could have been a completely separate novel, but we get it here with the other 5 tales. Now honestly, this story has the longest sentences I've ever read. There are many paragraphs with a period at the end. The verb tense also changed at the end of the story. But, that is style stuff, and someone may enjoy what I didn't... As for the content, WOW! This is good stuff right here! My husband and I talked a bit about the man's hurt and self-righteousness, his anger and all he had to work through, the way his loss and grief lead him to become numb to other's grief and even cause it in cases. It's a truth that hurt people hurt people. It does have a surprisingly sweet ending and wraps up very well.
In short, these Tales are sure to please Featherheads, and teach some valuable lessons along the way!
