        "This being Xanth, the adventurers find absurdities, danger, and romance but also find themselves unwittingly involved in extremely complex intrigue. Classic Xanthromancy."

      • premium: False
      • source: Booklist on Currant Events
      • content: "Naturally, the quest is successful--Anthony does not trade in tragedy in his best-known series--and what is more, along the way Clio finds true love with the magician Sherlock and meets a good many of the ongoing characters in the Xanth series. ...The puns for which the Xanthian corpus is famous are as numerous and outrageous as ever."

        As they wander through Xanth searching for something worthwhile in which to take part, walking skeletons Picka Bones and his sister Joy'nt encounter a trio of former pets from Mundania--the nonmagical world outside Xanth--that are also looking for a way to pass the time. The siblings' adventures with Tweeter the bird, Midrange the cat, and Woofer the dog include encounters with the Princesses Dawn and Eve, a confrontation with Attila the Pun, and the search for Pundora's Box. Written during a difficult time in his life, the 35th installment of Anthony's beloved fantasy series exudes his characteristic gusto for life and celebration of the silliness and verbal acrobatics found in the simple pun. VERDICT This whimsical fantasy should please Xanthophiles and fans of the author.
