The Adventures of the Princess and Mr Whiffle
Posted August 30, 2010on:
In what seems to be a growing habit of discussing “books with pictures that are not for children”, allow me to bring your attention to the latest from Patrick Rothfuss. Should you be lucky enough to see a copy of Patrick Rothfuss’s The Adventures of the Princess and Mr. Whiffle, buy it. Do not pass go, do not collect two hundred dollars, and do not, under any circumstances read it to a young child, unless you’d like that child to be in your bedroom at 1:30am whispering through tears “Mommy, I can’t sleep, I’m scared”. When Rothfuss warns that the end of the book “has teeth in it”, he’s not kidding. That said, if you have one of those wonderous children who does, in fact, have teeth, and knows how to use them, proceed as you normally would. At least it will keep you chuckling until Wise Man’s Fear comes out.
That is all. Good day.
