The madcap, macabre, and maddeningly funny Tales from the Five Kingdoms continue — with an oddly heart-warming adventure.

It’s a fine day for dwarf watching! At least that’s what Gracie Gillypott and Prince Marcus innocently think as they set out, unaware that Princess Marigold has honed her sights on Marcus and plans to follow him to the ends of the earth — fan, frilly pet

lebih seru dr buku #2-nya tp blm sebagus robe of skulls. dlm cerita yg ini penuh dng makhluk2 tanah: troll, dwarf n goblin, plus ada kelelawar yg alergi *bukan pilek lo* :)

nb. meskipun seseri, tp buku ketiga ini diterjemahkan oleh orang yg berbeda dr kedua buku sblmnya. jd ada bbrp istilah yg jg diterjemahkan berbeda... spt hutan pemikat mjd rimba muslihat atau ist lima kerajaan yg digunakan sblmnya berubah tidak diterjmhkan, tetap Five Kingdoms.

Marcus's motivations / lack of conscience seemed a bit unconvincing in this. But I enjoyed it anyway. Good series for confident junior readers and tweens.

Paling sip buku pertamanya.
Buku ketiga lebih seru dari buku kedua, cuma penyelesaiannya terkesan terburu-buru.
Tokoh terfavorit tetep Gubble.

Ketika Pangeran Marcus mau nyari putri buat Raja Troll, sempat berharap Foyce aja yang dikasih. Ngahahahahah....

Akan bikin review kumplit nanti.
Sekarang masak sop dulu. *sebagaimana mestinya yang emak2 lakukan*

Reason for Reading: Next in the series

This is another series I read simply because it is a whole lot of fun. The Tales of the Five Kingdoms have a fairy tale quality to them and follow the adventures of Gracie Gillypot, living with the Ancient Crones who weave the tapestry of life. Gracie is not always the main character in each book, though. This time around, almost every one of the main characters we have met so far and their families are part of the story as a wedding is under preparation. Th

Last week I was blogging about Shannon Hale’s excellent fairy tale retellings and assuring all the (at least chronologically) adult readers that, although they were written for teenagers, they can be enjoyed by the (notionally) grown up. Hey! That’s not a slight – I’m right there with you on the my-age-has-finally-reached-my-European-shoe-size scale of adulthood. Anyway, moving along…..

If you’re with me so far let’s take the next, logic

Heart of Glass is the third story in the Tales from the Five Kingdoms series. Vivian French made good on her promise that the bats would have more dialogue in this book. We even meet a new bat, Flo, who helps Gracie. There are some new characters in this book, mostly dwarves and trolls. Somehow Gracie has gone from dwarf-spotting with Marcus to being in a dwarf tunnel, where it isn't good to be a true heart.

Pesan moral yang disampaikan buku ini sangat cocok untuk para remaja, sasaran pembaca buku ini. Bagaimana pun situasi dan kondisinya, kita harus berhati-hati jika memberikan janji, karena janji harus ditepati. Janji adalah hutang yang harus dibayarkan. Untung itu jangan sembarangan memberikan janji pada yang lainnya. Pikirkan dulu masak-masak bagaimana kondisinya, apalah merugikan bagi diri kita dan orang lain, bagaimana cara kita memenuhi janji tersebut.

Another delightful installment in this delightful and funny series. The troll king is lonely and wants a princess to keep him company, so the dwarves promise him one in exchange for a troll digger who can help them mine more gold for the imminent wedding of Princess Fedora. Meanwhile, Gracie Gillypot is in mortal danger when she is caught by a dwarf trap and pulled underground, then stalked by the scary gollum-like creature, Oolie. It's up to Marcus and his team of loyal bat messengers to figure ...more

Narrated by Renee Raudman. The dwarves are falling behind in their orders to create gold crowns and jewelry for the upcoming royal wedding and request that King Fab provide a troll to speed up the dig for gold. He will provide a troll on one condition: that the dwarves bring him a pretty princess to keep him company. Prince Marcus and Gracie, who have gone out dwarf-hunting, find themselves caught in the middle of the deal and Gracie gets trapped in a troll tunnel. Raudman's Disneyesque voice cr ...more

Cerita petualangan yang luar biasa hebat, bahkan mungkin tak pernah terbayangkan seorang pangeran yang biasanya terhormat dan dilayani, kini berpetualang mencari kurcaci, dan kurasa itu menyenangkan. Dan aku sangat menyukai semua alur ceritanya, hanya saja sedikit gangguan dari Marigold yang kurasa sangat mengganggu kehidupan pangeran Marcus, tapi karnanya cerita kurasa lebih seru lagi, dan aku sangat mengidolakan Gracie Gillypot karna keberaniannya, seorang jiwa sejati yang benar-benar sejati!

I already read The Robe of Skulls: The First Tale from the Five Kingdoms (Tales from the Five Kingdoms) and The Bag of Bones: The Second Tale from the Five Kingdoms, which are the 1st and 2nd books in the Tales from the Five Kingdoms. this is the 3rd, and I enjoyed it as much as I did the first two.

A fairly quick read greets you in the third tale from the 5 kingdoms. Gracie and Prince Marcus have another adventure off to see dwarves, and trolls. As Gracie is a Trueheart, she gets herself into a bad situation again, and we have to see if someone can get her out of it. A fun, and light read...and 2 more to go in the series.

Prince Marcus and Gracie set off to find the dwarfs. Of course, they end up in a big adventure. Some old friends end up turn up to share and some new friends are made. Trolls end up being tamed and the dwarfs perform miracles with gold. Can't wait until the next installment comes out.

A great further entry in a really strong, enjoyable fairy tale series akin to E.D. Baker's Frog Princess. Fantastic main characters Prince Marcus & feisty, truehearted orphan Gracie Gilliepot have an adventure involving the Trolls living under the forest just outside the Kingdom.

To me, this story fell somewhere between the first and the second in overall quality. The book told a good story, but the tale did tend to feel a bit disjointed in places.

Actual rating: 3.5 stars, but I round up.

I do so love a book that makes me smile. so far all three novels in this series has done just that. This one, The Heart Of Glass, was just a tad more in-depth than the others, I felt. quite simply, I loved it!

I love this series. This is one I would happily read aloud. (I also happily read it to myself!) I am looking forward to the next installment in the series.

sip juga yang ini. meski agak gemes. mungkin juga alurnya terlalu diringkas.
tidak sabar menunggu terjemahan buku keempat dan lima.

I think it was a very well wrote book filled with magic and spells. It is a good book for 9-12 year olds.

The third book in the series is just as sweet and funny as the first two. Same great characters, with a few new friends. A great fantasy series for younger readers.
