“Funny, delightful and whimsical story of two royal siblings who learn what leadership requires. Smiles for readers of all ages who will relate with the troubles these two face in doing what must be done – whether it’s learning multiplication tables or utilizing archery skills”–Eileen, 5 stars on Amazon, UNDER PRESSURE WITH A SQUASH.
“. . .well paced and well executed. I felt satisfied by the story’s outcome and by Nero’s growth. And as with Book 1, I laughed along the way. What a silly, fun, sweet world.” –Deborah Halverson, award-winning author and editor, LOST WITH LEEKS.
“This is an awesome book for older elementary kids (or intermediate schools) that is fun, interesting, and keeps young minds reading! I loved it myself though I am a bit too old to qualify as mid-level elementary. Great book.” –Pat Eroh, 5 stars on GoodReads, LOST WITH LEEKS.
“Extremely entertaining!! I enjoyed this book from start to finish! I received a complimentary copy of this book through Voracious Readers Only.” —Jacquie, 5 stars on GoodReads, LOST WITH LEEKS.
“Funny magical story. This European author has crafted a funny, warm fairy tale about a prince who didn’t think he could be a leader because he couldn’t find his way around. It is the second book in the Seven Kingdoms series following the equally magical Trouble With Parsnips. Writer Laurel Decher’s sense of fun and humor (the Blackfly Queen is holding St. Nicholas in a dungeon for failure to pay tolls) sparkle throughout. While the main character Prince Nero may be lost, the author easily finds her way to her readers’ hearts.” —eileen, 5 stars on Amazon, LOST WITH LEEKS.
“delightful funny book that captures the readers heart from start to finish. A wicked Queen, hot air balloons, a friendly yellow dragon and a Prince with a lot of responsibility and a huge talent for getting lost make for a hilarious journey. . . will definitely be sharing it with my grandchildren.” —Sharon Walker, LOST WITH LEEKS.
“a wonderful and fantastical story. . .a great read for older elementary children. . .enjoyed discovering this whimsical world, watching Nero overcome his obstacles, and seeing the growth of characters through the story. . .” —Christina Newcomb, LOST WITH LEEKS.
