    1. I adore this book about a young boy, Taash, and the court jesters who come into his life, along with the witch Bargah and various other wonderful characters. My 6th grade teacher read it aloud to us (way back when) and the entire class was gripped. Thereafter I borrowed and re-borrowed the book from the library, and in adulthood finally tracked down a copy via on-line to read to our own children. We just finished it (again) in bed-time reading to our 8-year old, and I was once again enthralled. [...]


    2. This is the very first novel I read in grade three. I remember the story to this day and the magic of how it fired up images in my mind and feelings in my body. I started me on my lifelong love of reading. I told a very kind and caring friend about it once and she found a copy online and bought it for me for my 45th birthday. I read it and enjoyed it again, then sadly lost it in one of my many moves. Hope to find another copy and keep in my collection.


    3. 3.5 starsA very original and inventive tale of a young orphan, Taash, who had been raised in a cruel and abusive home in a village where he was treated like scum until the day the local witch was given the care of him.

It takes him a long while to warm up to them, but he starts to o [...]


    4. This is one of my all time childhood loves. And I still love it!! My grade school librarian suggested it for me. I was an constant reader and was running out of books to read in our small library. Mrs. Oswald would always have something ready for me to grab onto. Many decades later I still enjoy this book so much that I had to seek out my own copy. This is a story that completely grabs the reader and whisks them away to another time and place. I would recommend this to every young person to read [...]



    5. An absolutely charming book. Boys and girls would love it. The twists and turns of the plot make it exciting and the characters make it fun. It is my all time favorite children's book.


    6. Brilliant book! A quick read. Meant for younger kids (I read it in 5th grade) but it still makes me smile. I have re-read it several times and still adore it.



    7. One of my favorite book from childhood. And though I now find the characters a little too prone to fortuitously(for the story) announce their intentions, I do still like it very much.
