There were only three things in the world Piswyck wanted.
The first was his inheritance: the castle, the fine horses, the tapestries, the jewels...but his father, the wizard, was still very much alive.
The second was his love, the beautiful Miranda...but her wicked uncle held her hostage. One of these days he would have to get around to rescueing her.
The third was the particolored unicorn.
And so our tale begins...
The Particolored Unicorn (Paperback) by Jon DeCles
All the young Marquis Piswyck needs is beautiful Miranda, who has been carried off to Far Bermuda by her wicked Uncle Smagdarone (the Great?).
To rescue her he will have to get passed an impenetrable wall of man-eating gelatin. Of course he gets help and hindrances along the way from an outrageous cast of charters. There are trolls, hang glider battles, great green sharks, gymnastics in swordplay, Black Elves, a giant chartreuse septapus named Ralph, and a war in which the most important weapon is perhaps the umbrella.
And best of all he has written the sequel "Storm Wars!" I can't wait to get my hands on it:) ***** (5 stars)
