    callie_b's book review was featured in The Ickabog.
    The story of the Ickabog shows just how quickly a little lie can turn into a never-ending deception. In Cornucopia, each part of the kingdom is known for having a specialty food that they are the best at making, like cheeses or pastries. Best friends Daisy and Bert have heard the rumors and legend of the Ickabog, a massive monster that eats people, but they always knew they were just stories... or were they? When a shepherd from the Marshlands, a far out and rural part of the kingdom, says the Ickabog ate his dog, ruler King Fred the Fearless doesn't believe him at first. Fred thinks going to investigate the Ickabog would be the perfect opportunity to prove that he could be a good king with no risk after people had begun to call him selfish, vain, and cruel, since the Ickabog was only a myth... right? His advisors Spittleworth and Flapoon concoct a story of lies after an accident on the journey about encountering the real Ickabog with King Fred saving the day, and it spreads through Cornucopia faster than Bert can eat a Hopes-of-Heaven pastry. Taxes and defense brigades are put in place to help protect from the supposed Ickabog, even though Spittleworth knows he made it all up, and the only thing the defense brigade taxes were helping was the flow of money into his pockets. Daisy and Bert are determined to thwart Spittleworth after learning some shocking information, and they are ready to do whatever it takes to restore peace to the kingdom. But Spittleworth is dangerous, threatening to kill and imprison their families if they don't stay quiet. It's a battle of the wits to determine who will come out on top. This book was AMAZING! I love a good fairytale, and this book did not disappoint! J.K. Rowling worked her magic again into this page-turner that will keep your imagination running. The suspense, adventure, plot-twists and complex characters really made this book enjoyable, and I loved every minute of it. I was transported into a magical world with endless possibilities as I read this book! The colorful illustrations made by kids throughout the book were the cherry on top! I would definitely recommend this book to anyone in need of a great fairytale, and I would recommend it for ages 8+.

    I have read and done reviews for the other two books in this series, they were amazingly great books, and really kept me hooked, I'm entering because I hope this one is just as good.

    J.K. Rowling’s new book starts in the lovely little kingdom of Cornucopia. Ruled by King Fred the Fearless. With the capital of said kingdom, Chouxville, where they had a pastry shop that had the most delicious pastries in possibly the whole world (And that’s an understatement.) But while Kurdsberg is famous for their many types of cheese, and Baronstown is famous for their fine selection of meats, there was a small part near the northern tip of Cornucopia that could only be best described as the Marshlands. A place that grew nothing more than a few mushrooms and dry grass. The only good thing that came out of there was the legend of the Ickabog. When a Marshlander comes to King Fred and claims the Ickabog ate his poor dog, Fred sets out on a quest to find this Ickabog, see if it is real. And then slay it. When they see nothing, they assume, like always, that the Ickabog was never real. Or is it? Good book, hard to put down. Really liked all the drawings from kids in there. The only thing I didn’t like is the fact that in a book that is directed to 9-11 year olds, that there was some really dark moments.
