Upping the ante! Next up are two books by Jasper Fforde: The Last Dragonslayer (HMH Books for Young Readers, 2010) and its sequel, The Song of the Quarkbeast (HMH Books for Young Readers, 2013). If I don't like the first one, I'll likely ditch the second, but knowing Fforde's strengths as a writer, I'll probably gobble them both up.
“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
I'm excited! You?
