The Lovereading4Kids comment
This is a hilarious and swashbuckling adventure featuring the half human, half elf Sebastian Darke, a wannabe court jester, who discovers heâ€™s not great at telling jokes!! Fans of Shrek and Terry Pratchett will love it for its wonderful humour and madcap fantastical adventure. This is the authorâ€™s first foray into writing for children and what a hit it is; however it has crossover appeal too we feel sure. The second Sebastian Darke: Prince of Pirates is just out in hardcover.
Sebastian Darke: Prince of Fools by Philip Caveney
Sebastian Darke has the world on his narrow shoulders. The son of a human father and an elvish mother, he is desperately trying to become the family breadwinner and has taken on his late father's job - celebrated jester, Prince of Fools. Trouble is, Sebastian can't tell a joke to save his life. Dressed in his father's clothes and accompanied by his talking (and endlessly complaining) buffalo, Max, he sets off for the fabled city of Keladon, where he hopes to be appointed court jester to King Septimus. On the way he encounters a tiny but powerful warrior called Cornelius; the beautiful Princess Kerin; blood-thirsty Brigands and enough perils to make him wonder why he ever decided to leave home. This is a hilarious and swashbuckling adventure!
