Product description

Review

"With 'The Last Dragonslayer' fans of Jasper Fforde's best-selling 'Thursday Next' and 'Nursery Crime' series will be delighted that Fforde's talent for world-building, his skewed sense of humor and his searing satire come through full force."
--New York Times Book Review

"Features the same delightful mix of magic and everyday absurdity that characterizes [Fforde's] other books. . . . Readers both young and adult will get hours of pleasure visiting these Ununited Kingdoms."
--NPR Books, online review

"Fforde's foray into children's books will delight readers who like their fantasy with a dash of silliness."
--Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Humor abounds, but so does heart, as readers are introduced to a heroine who is practical, smart, and true."
--School Library Journal, starred review

"Fforde's fantasy is smart, funny, and abundantly imaginative in its critique of commercial culture. . . . Reminiscent of Pratchett in tone, this is nevertheless Fforde's own creature entirely--and entirely satisfying."
--Horn Book

"Fantasy readers with a taste for the silly should appreciate the subverted tropes."
--Kirkus

"Thoroughly entertaining . . . readers will easily sit back and enjoy the fun."
--Booklist
