Prince Iggy and the Kingdom of Naysayer is an imaginative, magical epic fantasy adventure for young readers. It is so entertaining and comical that I, a 35 year old adult, sat down and read it all in one sitting.
Prince Iggy and the Kingdom of Naysayer delivers a message about bullying and believing in yourself without beating you over the head with it. When we meet Iggy at the beginning of the story he is a hopeless, bullied orphan with no friends. As the story moves on he learns that he is more than what others says about him and he begins to develop self confidence.
Prince Iggy and the Kingdom of Naysayer will delight your kids, keep them interested and even cause them to laugh out loud. The only reason that I’m giving it 4 stars instead of 5 is because the author uses two curse words (Not the worse ones, but unnecessary in my opinion) in the story and as a parent I think parents should know what their child is reading. If your child is younger than 12, you should read with your child so that you can discuss the language and the bullying, that goes on in the book, at times the bullying is hardcore.
This book was so enjoyable and ended at a cliffhanger that I immediately read the next one cover to cover in one sitting. I HAD to know what happened to Iggy.
In this sequel Prince Iggy goes an adventure in the sky, gets to meet a star and lets go of self doubt and some things from his past.
This book is also full of some important lessons as well. Iggy must overcome the self-doubt that is causing him anxiety. The author is really good at capturing these pre-adolescent emotions that all kids go through. I can’t wait to read the third one and find out what happens to Prince Iggy.
