  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2014 September #1
    What starts out as an ordinary day for Jenny Strange, manager of Kazam Magical Arts and official Court Mystician, turns into a desperate journey when she travels into the neighboring Cambrian Empire to locate the Eye of Zoltar, a goose-egg-sized ruby. It is a dangerous assignment, and she is aided by her colleague (and date), the Wizard Perkins, a rubber dragon, and the Crown Princess of Snodd, who has been transferred into the body of a Royal Dog Mess Removal Operative by her mother as a lesson in humility. Fforde peoples this third installment of the Chronicles of Kazam with his signature wacky eccentrics, and the plot is wildly entertaining—and a bit easier to follow than The Song of the Quarkbeast (2013). Throughout, the snark quotient is high, encompassing everything from financial speculations on princess and goat futures to a devotional visit to the Patron Saint of Fading Relevance. Fans will laugh all the way to the last page and will be happy to hear there is more absurdity to come.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: The Chronicles of Kazam titles are worldwide best-sellers, and the blockbuster marketing plan for this latest installment will only fan the flames. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
