Scarboy and his brother, Little Child, have just lost their mother. With no father or mother to care for them, they become wards of the evil Enchanter and the Enchanted City. Scarboy’s mother used to tell him stories of an exiled king. When presented the opportunity, Scarboy and Little Child take the chance to go and find the king their mother told them about.
This is a very interesting allegorical story. I am surprised I have never heard of it before.
I thought this book might be another good one to read to my kids, but they didn’t particularly like it or understand all of the connections. I believe now that they may be too young for it.
The illustrations are very detailed. Filled with the colors that reflect the situations of the world. The people are full of life and the illustrations bring that forth, including the darker parts.
I would have to give this book 2.5 out of 5 stars and would recommend it to anyone who enjoyed the Chronicles of Narnia novels.
I received my copy of this book from BookCrash.com for the sole purpose of providing an honest review.
