THE GOBLIN’S PUZZLE, by Andrew S. Chilton


The story (from the back cover): THE BOY is a nameless slave on a mission to uncover his true identity. THE GOBLIN holds all the answers, but he’s too tricky to be trusted. PLAIN ALICE is a bookish peasant girl carried off by a confused dragon. And PRINCESS ALICE is the lucky girl who wasn’t kidnapped. All four are tangled in in a sinister plot to take over the kingdom, and together they must face kind monsters, a cruel magician, and dozens of deathly-boring palace bureaucrats. They’re a ragtag bunch–but with strength, courage, and plenty of deductive reasoning, they just might outwit the villains and crack the goblin’s puzzle.

Mrs. Friend’s opinion: If you like fantasy, you’ll like this one! There’s plenty of action, strong characters both boy and girl, and some laugh-out-loud moments courtesy of the cheeky narrator.
