Although I hate the cover, the writing has great visuals that more than make up for it. I still have a wonderful picture in my head of the alien on the glide board, but it looks nothing like the one on the cover. What I liked most about the book is the combination of humor and serious endeavor on the part of Willard Phule/Captain Jester (Captain Clown, according to the translator) and Asprin. I'm definitely looking for the next book in this series since the humor isn't obvious, slapstick-type humor. Instead it is a feel-good type of humor in that you don't always laugh out loud, but you feel upbeat most of the time. Oh, and don't forget Sargeant Centerfold, another great moment. And Mother's debut - what a fun and unexpected turn-around that was. Lots of good fun in this book. And the contest between the Red Eagles and Phule's Company? Not to be missed.
