A relaxing and charming little book. Contains insights into the kingslayer's world and the school that are worth the read.

It is not a normally plotted book. As the author says in the afterword, Auri making soap takes up 20 pages out of 150.

Jerome K. Jerome
“It is impossible to enjoy idling thoroughly unless one has plenty of work to do. There is no fun in doing nothing when you have nothing to do. Wasting time is merely an occupation then, and a most exhausting one. Idleness, like kisses, to be sweet must be stolen.”
Jerome K. Jerome
