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

The Queen of Mariskantania is missing, and it is up to the hero, Sir Nathan to smite all the evil in the land and rescue
her. In this colorful adventure we travel with Sir Nathan across the land, past beautiful puffy Jubb Jubb trees, through the Swamp Forest of Misery, past Mount Thunder and all the way to Flying Hills of Blort. This perilous journey is wrought with danger as our hero must outsmart pixies, evil wizards, the mini Prestidigitator (who really thinks he’s ten feet tall) and baby gian

Queen Gobbledeegook is missing from the kingdom of Mariskatania! The hero of the land, Sir Nathan, and his trusty steed are sent to find her and bring her back. With the help of many strange and unique people (and things), our hero and his horse go through a long and difficult quest to find the queen. Will they succeed and not meet a horrible fate? Will they survive the giant-sized toddlers that want to eat them? Will our hero EVER get to finally smite someone (or thing)? Read the book to find o ...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

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!

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.

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!

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
