"Beyond the great forest and towering Dragon Mountain lies Fairyland, a land of elves and trolls, dragons and giants, magicians and fairies. And in one corner, Fairyland East, lives Knight Kyle. Kyle's great-grandfather once possessed a silver lance that, according to legend, gave its owner invincible power. The lance is now missing, and Kyle is always looking for it, but so are his worst enemies: the robber Rasputin and the evil magician Balduin. Luckily, Kyle has the help of his friends, including Lady Constance (who is as brave as a dragon), Dragobert (who really is a dragon), Elf Aurin (whose harp playing, unfortunately, puts Kyle to sleep), and Prince Nepomuk (who protects his friends and his wardrobe at all times). Almost every day they find themselves in a new amazing adventure..."--Page 4 of cover… (more)

A cute but unexceptional little children's book with delightful illustrations.

Good in small doses, it feels that its standalone chapters might be best for reading to a very young child, perhaps as bedtime stories. A slightly older child would likely find these short chapters not quite enough of a challenge.

While not every children's book must confront the problem of evil, this one solidly side-steps it by showing that the characters we think are bad are really just lonely, misunderstood and not invited to the right parties.

Since I'm not certain of the intended audience's age group, it's hard to fault the author (or perhaps the translator?) for having such low expectations of children, their reading abilities, attention spans and interests.

Read a chapter to your youngest as a bedtime story until the Magic Silver Lance is found. ( )

I received access to this book through the Kindle First program, which gives Amazon Prime users a chance to look at one soon to be released book free each month (and other Kindle users for a low price).

This was a fun children's chapter book. It wasn't particularly deep, but it had some fun stories and bright, cheerful art. ( )
