BEST BOOK EVER!!!!!!❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Review by ReadingRocks100

I loved this book so much! It was set in I think the Middle Ages, and had so much adventure and magic. Some of it was a little weird (like when William used a donkey leg to fight some fiends), but it was mostly creative and funny. I recommend this book for 7/8+, because some of it gets a, um, “advanced” in some parts. If you read this book, like it, and are 9 and older, read Adam Gidwitz’s trilogy that’s starts with A tale dark and Grimm. I hope you choose this book!

Sooooooo good!

Review by Eduardotheweinderdog

If you like fantasy and medieval stuff I definitely recommend this book. It’s packed with magic and adventure and a little bit of blood and gore. I know I loved it.
