Author: Owen Barfield.
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)
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.
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.
