Queen Gobbledeegook has gone missing and it is up to Sir Nathan, the Hero of Mariskatania, to find her. Along the way he meets all sorts of odd folks, including pixies and wizards and a hulking creature named Mazy that likes to knit. The land of Mariskatania is a colorful one, filled with bright Jubb Jubb Trees and fuzzy, blue Hobnobber Squirrels who spend all their time looking for a snack guaranteed to poison them.

The sub-heading, A Somewhat Silly Story, is by no means false advertising Mark S...more

Sir Nathan and the Quest for Queen Gobbledeegook by Mark Simon Smith is definitely not a book that I would pick up off a bookstore shelf. However, it was written by the brother of a former co-worker, so I wanted to give it a try. I also have to admit that I needed to get out of my “adult thinking” and see this book as my former third graders would see it. When I did that…I can honestly say that it was a fun read. I think some kids will need to grow into the humor, but could be enjoyed if parents...more

A really delightful and wacky tale that reminded me of the good old days, when having fun was my job as a kid. This one has humor that can be enjoyed by kids and Big kids of all ages from 8 to 88!! I would highly recommend this to anyone who likes throwback tales of knights and giants with more silliness than a company of leprechauns traveling with a clown-troupe.

My nine year old is a voracious reader and has read this twice already! We read the e-book and he LOVED it so we bought the paperback that is available with illustrations. My son was so excited he took it to his teacher and they are reading it in his class now. I think it's a great book to read out loud for any age!
Andrea
Very witty and fun story. Well written, with lots of clever and absurd humor. My ten-year old daughter LOVED it, and kept reading quotes and passages out loud to us. We can't wait for the sequel!
Margo
Great, funny, laugh out loud fairy tale meets fantasy. Something for every boy and girl. I can't wait to read Book 2!

Sir Nathan and the Quest for Queen Gobbledeegook was originally written as a silly romp through a land of adventure for the author's young nieces and nephews. Now it has been rewritten and edited for a general release, aimed at other children like the author's 9 year old son and for th...more
