Not only does Mortimer return with multiple Wonders, he

An insanely cute and funny book about friendship and manners, set in a medieval time. Mortimer begins his journey with only one thing on his mind - to find a wonder of the world and bring it home so that he may become a knight. By the end of the story, he's amassed a motley crew of companions and a whole new outlook on his life.

My children and I enjoyed reading this book together. Ms. Carson has a gentle way of drawing her readers into her interesting world made up of creatures that we found funny and engaging. Can't wait for the sequel!

I know the book is aimed at children but I found him too childish to be a 'man', too selfish to be likeable and you need ...more
