The Silver Trumpet

May 31, 2017

Author: Owen Barfield.

Summary:

In this delightful fantasy of kings and queens, a magical Silver Trumpet, a jester dwarf, and castle intrigues, English author Owen Barfield has created an enduring tale to captivate the imaginations of all readers. (Goodreads Summary)

My Thoughts:

Really, a lovely fairy tale in the old style. A handful of interesting metaphors for older readers to discuss, but nothing that tangles the story up or leaves it moralistic or boring.

Content Review:

Sexual Content: None.

Language: One instance of ‘demme’.

Violence: One character is killed by fright. There are two instances of planned mob-violence, but both times it is stopped.
