The Lovereading4Kids comment
The first in the Truth Sayer Series. A joyful and lighthearted fantasy series tells the story of Nian, a boy with a destiny. Taken to the House of Truth to learn the necessary skills to becoming a Lord of the Truth, Nian realises that is not what he wants to be doing. Stepping into another world to escape, he finds himself surrounded by things he doesn't understand especially when it comes to operating a toaster.
The results are hilarious. Further adventures follow as Nian becomes the most powerful person in the House of Truth and has to learn to manage his magic and, as the series develops, to use it to its best effect.
The Truth Sayer by Sally Prue
Nian is 'discovered' as a boy with special powers, and whisked away to be an apprentice in the House of Truth. He immediately resolves to escape - but there's only one way he can think of to get out, and that's to learn to fly. Unfortunately his powers are rather hard to control, and the process involves a certain amount of banging his head on the ceiling... Then he finds a place where the boundaries between the worlds are thin, and he stumbles into our world. There he meets Jacob, who helps him as he learns to speak the language and to start to come to grips with the funny habits of people in this world, and to start to see how he might find a place here. But then the House of Truth send someone through to hunt him down and fetch him back, and the equilibrium of the worlds starts to break down. Nian knows he will have to go back - but first he will have to rescue his pursuer, who is causing mayhem wherever he goes, and on the way help Jacob and his family through some tricky situations. On his return to the House of Truth he will use his new experiences and knowledge to change the way of life there forever.
