Book Review/ Giveaway: Wordsworth and the Dragon. Ends May 3rd
Wordsworth and the Dragon by Scotti Cohn, illustrated by Christina Wald
About the Book: The Kingdom of Atoz is thrown into a panic when the letter C disappears from the Royal Alphabet. No one can say or write the letter, and it has vanished from all the books in the kingdom. Sir Clooney becomes Sir Looney. A sign in a bakery window offers “akes” and “fresh baked pie rust.” The librarian, Lord Reading, tries to recite his favorite poem but the lines come out all wrong. “A terrible rime has been ommitted!” he wails. A young page named Wordsworth believes that the letter C was stolen by a dragon. Seeing a chance to prove himself worthy of knighthood, he heads into the Forest of Spells to fight the dragon and recover the missing letter. Wordsworth isn’t acting alone. He has the help of Phrasia, the local witch; Klause, a goat-like creature called a cavabok; and his friend, Princess Rho, who has a secret power. But will that be enough? What will happen when Wordsworth has to face not only a dragon but a gang of large, mean creatures called muddletonques? Who will protect him? http://www.scotticohn.com/
My Review: Wordsworth is a Page for the King of Atoz, King Omicron. Wordsworth is working toward becoming a Knight.
When the royal alphabet letter C was stolen the King wanted to know how as the royal alphabet is three feet tall and made of the heaviest wood in the kingdom, and is guarded night and day in the tallest tower. The King asked Sir Clooney to summon all the knights to hunt down the thief. This was a terrible day for the kingdom of Atoz. People are unable to speak or write the letter. The word crime becomes rime, Sir Clooney becomes Sir Looney, Cookies becomes ookies, and everyone in the kingdom started pronouncing words without a C. And they were making sounds they had not made before.
Wordsworth is convinced that a Dragon must have stolen the letter C from the Royal Alphabet and so he plans out on his own quest to find the Dragon and recover the stolen letter. Was Wordsworth able to find the letter C? Did a dragon really steal the alphabet?
I really enjoyed reading Wordsworth and the Dragon and I think every child will love reading it too. The pencil like illustration by Christina Wald helped bring the story to life. So if you are looking for a book full of adventures, then pick up a copy and take a trip with Wordsworth. I highly recommend this book.
