Had read this book as an adolescent and was rereading for youth appropriateness check before giving it to a friend's son. It was simpler than I remember, but a decent read nonetheless. There was a rape hearing, but nothing illicit was described. Sex occurred at the end of the book, but was fairly harmless, just a mention.

I remembered enjoying these books when I was younger, but this time I found them tiresome. They have a strong mix of humor and fantasy and I usually go for that. I just found too much of the humor depended on titillation. Anyway, this is a series of magic stories and has good characters and surprises.

A book that's great fun! Later in the series they get really silly, but the first one is a classic.

Read this many years ago, and it was thoroughly fun. Later books in the series had a few too many puns, but this one was still a bit on the serious side.

Fun, fast-paced, and full of imagination! I loved every thrilling moment and there are one after another. The writing is intelligent and yet quick-witted to appeal to all intellect.
