The kingdom of Cornucopia was once the happiest in the world. It had plenty of gold, a king with the finest mustaches you could possibly imagine, and butchers, bakers and cheesemongers whose exquisite foods made a person dance with delight when they ate them. Everything was perfect - except for the misty Marshlands to the north which, according to legend, were home to the monstrous Ickabog. Anyone sensible knew that the Ickabog was just a myth, to scare children into behaving. But the funny thing about myths is that sometimes they take on a life of their own. Could a myth unseat a beloved king? Could a myth bring a once happy country to its knees? Could a myth thrust two children into an adventure they didn't ask for and never expected?If you're feeling brave, step into the pages of this book to find out ...

Rowling, pronounced like rolling, her name when her first Harry Potter book was published was simply Joanne Rowling. Anticipating that the target audience of young boys might not want to read a book written by a woman, her publishers demanded that she use two initials, rather than her full name. As she had no middle name, she chose K as the second initial of her pen name, from her paternal grandmother Kathleen Ada Bulgen Rowling. She calls herself Jo and has said, "No one ever called me -Joanne- when I was young, unless they were angry." Following her marriage, she has sometimes used the name Joanne Murray when conducting personal business. During the Leveson Inquiry she gave evidence under the name of Joanne Kathleen Rowling. In a 2012 interview, Rowling noted that she no longer cared that people pronounced her name incorrectly.Rowling was born to Peter James Rowling, a Rolls-Royce aircraft engineer, and Anne Rowling (née Volant), on 31 July 1965 in Yate, Gloucestershire, England, 10 miles (16 km) northeast of Bristol. Her mother Anne was half-French and half-Scottish. Her parents first met on a train departing from King-s Cross Station bound for Arbroath in 1964. They married on 14 March 1965. Her mother-s maternal grandfather, Dugald Campbell, was born in Lamlash on the Isle of Arran. Her mother-s paternal grandfather, Louis Volant, was awarded the Croix de Guerre for exceptional bravery in defending the village of Courcelles-le-Comte during the First World War.Rowling-s sister Dianne was born at their home when Rowling was 23 months old. The family moved to the nearby village Winterbourne when Rowling was four. She attended St Michael-s Primary School, a school founded by abolitionist William Wilberforce and education reformer Hannah More. Her headmaster at St Michael-s, Alfred Dunn, has been suggested as the inspiration for the Harry Potter headmaster Albus Dumbledore.As a child, Rowling often wrote fantasy stories, which she would usually then read to her sister. She recalls that: "I can still remember me telling her a story in which she fell down a rabbit hole and was fed strawberries by the rabbit family inside it. Certainly the first story I ever wrote down (when I was five or six) was about a rabbit called Rabbit. He got the measles and was visited by his friends, including a giant bee called Miss Bee." At the age of nine, Rowling moved to Church Cottage in the Gloucestershire village of Tutshill, close to Chepstow, Wales. When she was a young teenager, her great aunt, who Rowling said "taught classics and approved of a thirst for knowledge, even of a questionable kind," gave her a very old copy of Jessica Mitford-s autobiography, Hons and Rebels. Mitford became Rowling-s heroine, and Rowling subsequently read all of her books.Rowling has said of her teenage years, in an interview with The New Yorker, "I wasnt particularly happy. I think its a dreadful time of life." She had a difficult homelife; her mother was ill and she had a difficult relationship with her father (she is no longer on speaking terms with him). She attended secondary school at Wyedean School and College, where her mother had worked as a technician in the science department. Rowling said of her adolescence, "Hermione [a bookish, know-it-all Harry Potter character] is loosely based on me. She-s a caricature of me when I was eleven, which I-m not particularly proud of." Steve Eddy, who taught Rowling English when she first arrived, remembers her as "not exceptional" but "one of a group of girls who were bright, and quite good at English." Sean Harris, her best friend in the Upper Sixth owned a turquoise Ford Anglia, which she says inspired the one in her books. ...اقرأ المزيد

3.5 starsI enjoyed it! It-s a fairly simple tale that reads like a fairy tale told over many nights at bedtime (which is apparently how it started). I found the beginning a little slow and depressing because most of the good characters that gave you hope were either killed or put in prison. But I really liked it after the half way point and was satisfied with the conclusion. I will say I didn-t connect to the characters as much as I normally do with JK Rowling, but this was also a stand alone ch 3.5 starsI enjoyed it!

Rowling has such a unique and beautiful way of writing, and this book is no exception. Immediately I realized, even though it was a novel, it was definitely a children-s story. It-s a book about a vain king who inadvertently causes the death of one of his subjects. This bothers him, even though he tries to place the blame elsewhere, and is the beginning of a long line of events, building on one another. Entangled in this story is the legend of the Ickabog, a monster who lives in the swamp. Delig Rowling has such a unique and beautiful way of writing, and this book is no exception.

Entangled in this story is the legend of the Ickabog, a monster who lives in the swamp. Delightful and fun, I enjoyed it so much, once I finished it, I immediately began reading it to my children. (ages 13, and twin 10 yr olds) They all loved it so much, they beg for another chapter each night. This is my favorite kind of book, a good story I can share with my family. Highly recommended for children of all ages, like Nat King Cole says "From kids from 1 to 92", myself being one of those kids. If you-re looking for a detailed plot and intricate story line like that of Harry Potter, you won-t get it here. This is of the lighter variety with lessons to be learned and delightful characters you can relate to. Loved it.

3.5 starsThis is a children/ middle grade books that was a pleasure to read and got me out of a reading slump. I enjoyed this book. However you can see that I only have it 3.5 stars. At some times the King was very squeamish and some of the characters were very rude. I overall enjoyed this book it was a GOOD Book but not a great one. There were a few flaws. Hope you all have a happy and healthy day!!

Quite immersive story, has some logic/plot holes, but considering that it-s for kids - it-s fine. On the other hand it-s a bit gruesome for kids, lots of dead...

I was waiting to read this book for a long. I was thrilled by this book. I was deeply absorbed in this book. It was on fire. This book is so fascinating. I loved the characters and the plottings were amazing. The characters in this book are really , really different. Some were ruthless and some were compassionate. The ruthless characters include: Spittleworth, Flapoon, Roach, Cankerby, King Fred, Ma Grunter and Basher John. The compassionate characters include: Bert, Daisy, Martha, Rodrieck, Mrs Beamish, Mr. Dovetail, Lady Eslanda, Captain Goodfellow and the other two soldiers. I included Rodrieck in the compassionate group even tough his father was on Spittleworth-s side, because in the end he helped and told the citizens of Cornucopia that Ickabog is a friendly creature. The most abhorrent character is Spittleworth. He is a trickster and a misleader. Is a bastard, wicked,contemptuous, hard - hearted, and merciless. He is so confident in lying, I won-t say he is imaginative which is described in the book. I really wanted murder him. He was putting innocent people in the dungeons and murdering innocent people only to show that Ickabog is alive, and vile and cruel even though he hadn-t even the creature. And was robbing the whole Cornucopia. Fred was fooled by him. I was wondering why did the citizens of Cornucopia admired King Fred before the disaster strucked. He is selfish, vain and coward. An absolute big coward. He was reckless about his kingdom.From this book learnt that you should never tell lies or worse can happen to you.
