This takes place in the Dragonlance realm. It is narrated by a kender who tells of an adventure of his Uncle Trapspringer. Even though the title says "Tales" it is one big adventure. Trapspringer in the usual kender fashion barges in on two wizards in the middle of a spell that creates portals. This causes the spell to go awry and a creature arrives that does not belong in this world and could destroy the world. They go on an adventure attempting to return the creature.

This is a stand alone nove

Very lighthearted fun where the major plot is alllowed to hum in the background like a distracting buzz in your ears....exactly the way a Kender would view it! What I admire most about this book is that the author was not afraid to explore characters that were not strict stereotypes. I was aleady wincing internally with expectation that Uncle Trapspringer would be a carbon copy of Tasslehof Burrfoot and was truly pleased to find him more of an adventurous and mature sort if devil-may-care Han ...more

While I enjoyed learning more about gully dwarves, red-robes, and kender the characters in this book were hella annoying. Everyone spent the majority of the being mad at each other and arguing and being extremely childish. If I had been traveling with them I would have knocked them upside the head and left them to their foolishness. The ending was also on the lame side, it was rushed and didn't really explain much about what happens with Halmarain once she reunites with Orander.

as I usually enjoy reading about the kender I had such high hopes for this book which was solely about kender but I was rather disappointed as it was not that much fun!! the tales where a bit repetitive and the two kender characters where not as much fun as the other kender we usually met in other previous books!!

It was a kender-tastic tale. Pretty predictable, but humorous and full of vivid imagery, as the Dragonlance books always are. There are definitely sections, particularly the battle scenes, when you can almost hear dice rolling in the background. It was a fun book.

Sloppy work, not edited. And really I do think that when writing in a shared world it would be nice if the writer took enough interest in that shared world to spell its place names correctly.
Possibly the true story of the Uncle Trapspringer of kender lore, but possibly entirely made up. Either way, it's funny, or at least it was funny when I was 16 and devouring Dragonlance novels.
