I’m always looking for books for my young cousins and when the book is also educational, that’s a bonus for their parents.
A QUEST FOR GOOD MANNERS by Karin Lefranc is a perfect example of such a book. It’s a fun read that teaches without the youngsters realizing it.
The beautiful illustrations by Hannah Neale are vivid and colorful. The illustrations bring the story to life and will delight readers, young and old alike.
Princess Rosalind and her pet dragon, Sprakler, have no table manners and never say ‘thank you’ or ‘please.’
Having her fill, the Queen banishes the pair from the castle. They have 3 days to find Good Manners or the Queen will banish Sparkler for good.
They visit Percival, the wizard, before heading out on their quest. He gives them a magic fork to aid in their travel. On their quest they meet a fairy with purple wings and Lady Grace. They also learn what Good Manners are and why they are important.
Lefranc does a wonderful job of weaving a magical tale of adventure while teaching why manners are important. Through Princess Rosalind’s actions, readers will be able to relate.
A QUEST FOR GOOD MANNERS is suggested for ages 4 to 8 and would make a wonderful addition to any youngster’s library. It will bring a smile to everyone’s face.
