A comedic misadventure of Paracelus, an unlikely knight with an ever animal-changing sidekick mixing with a spoiled princess ... double trouble with a prince she’s betrothed, an ingrate double crosser, kidnapped villagers, and a family connection to nice pirates and a dazzling world building extraordinare - why only three stars?
For a simple story, it draaaagged (through no fault of the narrator!). I had intended to listen to it all the way through, during a recent snowfall, but kept rewinding, several chapters back ...?
My eventual solution was to program the audible to stop after each chapter ... and if I didn’t realize it, I knew where to restart. Tedious, but this book had such such promise and I wanted soo much to enjoy and finish it. Finish it, I did. However I didn’t enjoy it as much as I wanted!
I doubt this is really geared to the 8-10 year olds; tweeners could appreciate it, overall, more.
I would suggest this as a bed time story or family story time, small bite size to keep the intrigue and mystification.
I wouldn’t reject this and I intend to give it another chance in the near future.
