This was even better than I remembered. It's a love story told to a 5-year-old audience with sex, betrayal and bitter regret! 'Nuff said.

I would like to point out a quote from Mr. Anthony in the "Author's Note" at the end:

"You see, I have many young readers, who write me in much greater numbers than the older ones do, but they are really not the largest audience for Xanth. Despite appearances, Xanth is intended mostly for adults, which may be why the kids like it."

So. I did not name my son after a yount-adult fiction writer after all! And I can remain confident of my maturity/emotional development when I read books I first read when I was twelve. That's a load off.
