Horn Book Review

While visiting the Stone Forest, Prince Lucas's cousin loses her dog and must rely on the gnomes and Lucas's dragon to find him (Forest). Clara proves her knight potential by outperforming an arrogant squire and winning the horse race at the kingdom's Grand Tournament (Games). Beginning readers will enjoy these accessible fantasies, even if the resolutions are predictable. Black-and-white illustrations appear throughout. [Review covers the following Kingdom of Wrenly titles: Beneath the Stone Forest and Let the Games Begin.] (c) Copyright 2015. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
