Continuing the adventures of the Princess and her stuffed bear, Mr. Whiffle, The Dark of Deep Below delves a little more into her life and family dynamic (such as discovering that the Princess does in fact have parents, a trifling fact that seemed to be missing from the first volume). This time around, the Princesses little brother is kidnapped by goblins, and the Princess must decide whether she goes to rescue him or not, because she's really not that sure that she likes having a little brother in the first place. As with the first volume, there are 3 different endings that you can choose from and decide for yourself how you would want the story to end. And yes, these look like children's books, but they ARE NOT FOR CHILDREN. Nope, not at all.

Rothfuss and Taylor have taken their precocious character and her stuffed teddy and given them a longer, more involved story this time around, but somehow it didn't seem to live up to the first story for me. I more or less knew that there was going to be a twist at the end, and while I didn't foresee what exactly it was, knowing it was coming slightly downplayed it for me. Still, this is one of the more unique picture books you'll find out there for adults (seriously, don't read this to your kids!), so it's still worth reading, especially if you enjoyed the first one.

Cute dark story with wonderful art. Review to come soon at Fantasy Literature. http://www.fantasyliterature.com ( )

How to follow up a book as funny and as shocking as the original Princess and Mr. Whiffle? That's easy, if you're Patrick Rothfuss--play on those expectations to create a book that is charming, sweet, laugh out loud funny, and just the right amount of twisted.

The story, though strong, would not be nearly so successful without the artwork. Nate Taylor infuses each page with so much life. The expressions of the Princess (and somehow, even Mr. Whiffle) bring the character to life in a way that no words possibly could.

Highly, highly recommended. ( )
